New Arrivals
compiled by Neil Walsh

So far this month, books newly arrived at the SF Site office include the latest from Charles Stross, Ursula Le Guin, Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Terry Brooks, Robert Rankin, Ramsey Campbell, Charles de Lint, and many more. No shortage of reading material for the summer months ahead.

As for my personal reading, I was in the midst of a couple of rather fat non-fiction tomes when a fat fantasy epic muscled its way to the forefront of my attention. The latest installment of the Malazan Book of the Fallen from Steven Erikson arrived -- all 890 pages of it. I'm a little over halfway through and already I think it ranks among his best. I'll give a more detailed report in a future issue of SF Site.
