It started with a couple of boxes from Brilliance Audio, with Father Gaetano’s Puppet Catechism by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, both of Catherynne M. Valente’s Fairyland books, Steven Erikson’s Forge of Darkness, and This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It by David Wong:
And continued with a pair of digital download review copies, Lost Things: The Order of the Air by Melissa Scott and Jo Graham (from Crossroad Press) and The Dirty Streets of Heaven: Bobby Dollar, Book 1 by Tad Williams (from Penguin Audiobooks):
And today to end the month, Hachette sent a review copy of Gun Machine by Warren Ellis:
And also a box came from Tantor Audio, with Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch, Your House is on Fire, Your Children all Gone by Stefan Kiesbye, and Sold by Patricia McCormick:
And one more title from Brilliance Audio, Jasper Fforde’s The Last Dragonslayer, coming out Feb 5:
Whew. Luckily, several of these are quite short, and I’ve already listened to a few. (I’d already bought and listened to the first of Valente’s Fairyland books late last year.) I’ve got some good, varied listening ahead, though it’s a bit lacking in the science fiction department.
