My book purchases in September.
I have an event I’m going to up in Santa Fe this weekend which includes a Q&A and signing with Joe R. Lansdale, author of the above. Needless to say, I’ll be getting these signed.
Some new releases and a couple others that had either been recommended to me or are by authors I’ve already read.
For at least a couple of these, I picked ones that I’d kept hearing good things about but had just never got around to yet. The fact that they were also on sale at the time helped.
On Writing was a bit of a spur of the moment decision. I had read it before but it had been a while, we’d seen IT the night before, I had a credit going spare…
Advance / Review Copies
Many and more thanks to John Kang for gifting me Audible copies of his Black Lotus novellas. I really enjoyed them and went through them quickly. My review of the first is already available on my Booknest column and the others will be coming fairly soon.
And finally, I was surprised to receive advance proof copy of The True Bastards in the mail. I have a vague memory of entering a giveaway on Goodreads, but whether I owe my thanks to them, the author or the publishers, I’ll just say I was stunned and very grateful. I’m already halfway through and intend to have a review ready for the official release next week.
