Supporting quite a few authors with my money book roundup post

Picked up in print from Third Place Books:

  • Bronze Gods, by A.A. Aguirre. Looks like steampunky/alt-history mystery, and grabbing this because of general support of Ann Aguirre.
  • Crucible of Gold, by Naomi Novik. Already owned this electronically but Novik’s one of my “must buy in both formats” authors, and I didn’t have a paperback copy of this yet!
  • Bell, Book, and Murder: The Bast Mysteries, by Rosemary Edghill. This is Edghill’s omnibus edition of her Bast mysteries, the only way I could really get a hold of the third book of the series.

Picked up electronically from Smashwords:

  • Unseelie, by Meredith Spies. This is the re-isssued self-pub edition of a book previously released by Drollerie, under the author’s other name of Meredith Holmes. Did this purchase to support her.

Picked up electronically from B&N:

  • The Honey Month, by Amal El-Mohtar. Not normally a poetry or short story person, but after seeing Amal El-Mohtar’s name in recent SFWA-related posts, I wanted to find something by her and buy it to show my support. This was what I found. And hey, broadening my reading horizons with a bit of honey-themed poetry and short stories might be awesome.
  • Worldsoul, by Liz Williams. Because Liz Williams has been categorically awesome in everything I’ve read of hers, and I didn’t have this yet.
  • Reforming Lord Ragsdale, by Carla Kelly. Historical romance. Recommended on the Smart Bitches site.

And, picked up electronically from Kobo:

  • The Killing Moon, The Broken Kingdoms, The Kingdom of Gods, and The Shadowed Sun, by N.K. Jemisin. All in the general theme of “why yes, I WILL support her with buying as many of her books as possible.”
  • Swan’s Braid & Other Tales of Terizan, and The Silvered by Tanya Huff. Because TANYA HUFF. Two of hers I didn’t have yet.
  • Karma’s a Bitch, by Shannon Esposito. Cozy mystery. This is by one of the authors on the Paranormal Mystery list I’m on, and I thought it sounded cute and fluffy, and certainly the cover holds that up. Book 1 of the author’s Pet Psychic series.
  • The Death of the Necromancer, by Martha Wells. Ebook release of one of Wells’ older fantasy novels.
  • Daughter of the Sword, by Steve Bein. Urban fantasy set in Tokyo, and came highly recommended by at least one friend.
  • Alif the Unseen, by G. Willow Wilson. Which also came highly recommended.
  • BioShock: Rapture, by John Shirley. Tie-in novelization of the backstory of the BioShock video games. I’m not a console gamer but my housemate is, and I did enjoy what I saw of the storyline in those games. This novel takes elements from the first two games and ties them together to make a cohesive narrative about the founding of Rapture and its eventual slide into chaos. The story runs up to right before the first game starts.

109 for the year.
