New books!

Huh, stormfeather was right, all the stuff _is_ coming out today, including SM Stirling's newest book in the Emberverse series, "Sword of the Lady."

And for anyone else in SoCal who might be interested (which i think is probably no one) SM Stirling is doing a tour to support the release, and will be doing a discussion and autograph session at the Barnes & Noble in Huntington Beach. Kind of ironic since i'd been looking forward to getting to meet him for the first time at DragonCon next week :)

And also speaking of books, shelleycat and i have been having fun looking through the synopsis of some of the newer Audible books, many of which sound absurdly silly. Our favorite is one from a book that doesn't necessarily sound tooo bad, but the first sentence is "Ever since Damon Wilder sought refuse in Sea Haven, he's heard the same breathless rumor pass the lips of nearly every local in the sleepy coastal town."

We're hoping that's a typo :)
