I received a box of books from Pyr a few days ago. They publish fantasy and sci-fi books. I’m grateful to them for the books they sent along. Here is the list of books with descriptions from the Pyr catalog.
Joe Abercrombie |Before They Are Hanged
In this highly anticipated second book in Joe Abercrombie’s bestselling series, the most hated woman in the South, the most feared man in the North, and the most selfish boy in the Union make a strange alliance, but a deadly one. They might even stand a chance of saving mankind from the Eaters—if they didn’t hate each other quite so much. Ancient secrets will be uncovered. Bloody battles will be won and lost. Bitter enemies will be forgiven—but not before they are hanged.
I’m currently reading the first book in this series, The Blade Itself.
David Louis Edelman | Infoquake
This debut novel takes speculative fiction into alien territory: the corporate boardroom of the far future. It’s a stunning trip through the trenches of a technological war fought with product demos, press releases, and sales pitches. As imaginative as Dune yet as real as The Wall Street Journal.
David Louis Edelman | MultiReal
The story begun in David Louis Edelman’s acclaimed Infoquake continues with MultiReal, the stunning second book in the Jump 225 trilogy. Natch’s struggles take him from the halls of power in Melbourne to the ruined cities of the diss. Hanging in the balance is the fate of MultiReal, a technology that could end the tyranny of the Council forever—or give the Council the ultimate weapon of oppression.
Kay Kenyon | A World Too Near
Traversing the galactic distances of The Entire, former star pilot Titus Quinn discovers the secrets of its geography, its fragile storm walls, its eons-long history, and the factions that contend for dominance. One of these factions is led by his daughter, who though young and a slave, has at her command a transforming and revolutionary power. As Quinn wrestles with looming disaster, he learns that in the Entire, nothing is what it appears. Its denizens are all harboring secrets, and the greatest of these is the nature of the Entire itself.
I finished reading the first in this quartet in May.
