I love getting books for free, so recently, when I was recently given two awesome ARCs, I thought I would share the love with you guys while I work on reading through them and getting the reviews written and edited.
First, Adam “Ferrel” Trzonkowski sent me a shiny hardcopy of The Raider’s Companion from Epic Slant Press. I’ve flipped through it and read excerpts here and there, but I haven’t had a chance to read any whole sections yet. What I’ve seen is well-written, and anything that makes MMO raiding a little more bearable is okay by me. Plus, Amanda Martin’s pictures are pretty. I’ll have the review up soon.
And then there’s Tobias Buckell’s upcoming novel, Arctic Rising. I was able to snag an eARC of this one, and I cannot wait to dig in. After really enjoying his debut Crystal Rain and the ARC of Nascence, a global-warming-inspired technothriller sounds just great. Not to mention that as soon as I opened it up, there was an airship. And boy do I love airships. I’ll have a review of this one as soon as I can.
