I voted for the Jim Swallow Star Trek one because, even though I’m not a Star Trek guy, I heard him talk a bit about it on a podcast recently, and it sounded interesting.
As good a reason as any 🙂
Reblogged this on Shaven Wookiee and commented:
Vote for my book, Recon One-Five!
Seven Suns Saga is an amazing series! Hidden Empire is great!
saw link to vote on facebook. posted by one author I follow.
If you don’t mind me asking, which books did you pick?
I like the Star Wars:Into The Void listed instead as Star Trek: Into The Void. The first Star Trek/Star Wars crossover novel, apparently. That got my vote. 😉
Do I get to facepalm at myself? I thought I had corrected it. Obviously not. Thanks for catching that big blunder!
T.L. Costa’s Playing Tyler is an awesome read; ADD-rattled, vid-game-genius protag coping with sinister mystery surrounding govt. drone program. Yeah, I’ll say it: “ripped from the headlines.” But digs much deeper than that. (disclaimer: she & I share a publisher)
Ain’t that bit funny 😀 I read Zenn Scarlett already. Pretty damn good. Its like an SF version of a magical fairy tale, of sorts. Looking forward to reading Playing Tyler.
Yes, AJ, you’re right about the near-magic and good question re: when SF crosses into Sci-Fantasy; dark-matter noshing Alcubierre-wave-surfing indra might qualify…
Love the fact that when I reblogged it, Recon’s cover is huge and the rest are small! Bwahahahahaha!!!!!!
I picked Ari Marmell, Paul S Kemp and Richard Lee Byers. They have always offered me great stories no matter what the world they are writing in, the rest are mostly chosen by name of book/art. Tho Kevin J Anderson is also good and Star wars novels are usually at least a solid read.
I’ve read Paul’s work across three settings, and I’ve loved all of it – Star Wars: Deception, Forgotten Realms: Erevis Cale Trilogy, and his first Egil and Nix novel. Fantastic stuff. The only book from RLB I’ve read is his book in the War of the Spider Queen double trilogy. Thought it was arite. With Ari, I’ve read his two Widdershins novels, and his Darksiders tie-in. Darksiders was just plain awesome.
I voted for Cast no shadow as I read it and it neatly Tied up some plot points from Undiscovered contry and for KJA I love almost everything he has written
I voted for Gathering of the Lost, by Helen Lowe, and Assassin’s Apprentice, by Robin Hobb. Why? Well, I’ve read Assassin’s Apprentice, so your review of that will be my ‘control’ for your review of Gathering of the Lost! Happy reading 🙂
Haha, that works 🙂
The only one I’ve read and can recommend with confidence is The Wall of Night #2: Gathering of the Lost by Helen Lowe. You will get lost (see what I did there?) in her world.
Feel free to recommend whatever catches your fantasy 🙂
I voted for The Gathering of the Lost, as Helen Lowe is the only author I know here 🙂 (sorry, everyone else, but I don’t get much time to read at present!)
Not a problem at all, Anne! Thanks for voting!
I threw a vote to AGENTS OF ARTIFICE…but, truthfully, I think you should skip that one–and the follow-up–and go right for Stover’s TEST OF METAL. It’s amazing. I went back and read AoA after the fact, just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I didn’t.
I voted for DB O’Shea’s PENANCE, well, because it’s on my list and I think you’ll like it! Dan’s got a writing style that I find compelling and waaaayyy too realistic sometimes. Definitely worth a look!
That’s what I’m hearing from all corners!
Any book by Paul S. Kemp is a must read book. He has away of making his characters sit next to you as you read about their adventures.
I agree completely.
I pick Paul Kemp’s A Discourse in steel, the previous book The Hammer and the Blade was a [age turner for me and I’ve read it twice to get ready for discourse. I’m a long time fan of Mr. Kemp and really enjoy his writing and his skill at character development is quite commendable in my opinion.
