Free Books

Okay, more free books, on the usual terms: preference goes to people in the immediate area and/or people I will likely see at an upcoming con, in this case World Fantasy in November. Beyond that, it's first-come, first-served.

Jodi Compton, Sympathy Between Humans. Mystery set in Minneapolis. Cop detective who does crazy things like growing as a person over the course of the book. Good stuff -- I just don't tend to reread any but my favorite mysteries.

Keith R. A. DeCandido, Dragon Precinct. Fantasy cop novel. Entertaining. Has several anti-MarySue elements.

Lee Harris, Murder in Alphabet City. Another cop-detective murder mystery, this one set in New York, so I can't tell you how accurate it is in its setting. Again, it was a fine read, but I don't reread most mysteries.

A. Lee Martinez, Gil's All Fright Diner. Comedy horror. Zombies, vampires, werewolves, the whole nine yards.

C.J. Ryan, Dexta. SF, far-future, distant-planet. Tripped my MarySue alarms like mad, but if you're less bothered by that, you may enjoy it.

Tad Williams, Otherland: City of Golden Shadows. VR novel. Apparently "the author reminded me of my best friend from kindergarten when I saw him at a con" is not a great recipe for picking my favorite books. This wasn't a bad book, just not my kind of thing, really.
