Long, hot summer days should mean plenty of time for reading, right?
Wrong. This is probably the busiest month of the year in my household, as everybody is getting ready to go back to school while tearing around east Kansas trying to squeeze the last few succulent drops of summer vacation sweetness from the dry husk of August. As for me, I’m snowed under at work finishing up the planning for the next round of Army training exercises and getting my own familiarization training on our new simulators.
And yet, the stack ‘o books beckons. Three new stories with review obligations have jumped to the top of the list, while a couple of long time residents once again get pushed to the end of the line.
Masters and Slayers, by Bryan Davis (debuting September 2010).
Zero Gravity: Adventures in Deep Space, a sci-fi anthology, edited by Alva J. Roberts
Alpha Redemption, by P.A. Baines (sci-fi, debuting later this year from Splashdown Books)
