Hardcover Murderbot and Books for Monday

Tomorrow (Jan 22) is the re-release of The Murderbot Diaries: All Systems Red in hardcover, to match the rest of the series. It'll have the same art, but a new design to include the "New York Times Bestselling Series" and "Hugo and Nebula Award Winner" on it. :)


Also coming out soon:

I loved the first book and I've been looking forward to the sequel. This is an awesome epic fantasy:

* The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
Nahri’s life changed forever the moment she accidentally summoned Dara, a formidable, mysterious djinn, during one of her schemes. Whisked from her home in Cairo, she was thrust into the dazzling royal court of Daevabad—and quickly discovered she would need all her grifter instincts to survive there.

Now, with Daevabad entrenched in the dark aftermath of a devastating battle, Nahri must forge a new path for herself. But even as she embraces her heritage and the power it holds, she knows she’s been trapped in a gilded cage, watched by a king who rules from the throne that once belonged to her family—and one misstep will doom her tribe.

This is the sequel to The Sisters Mederos, which I just finished reading last week and really enjoyed. Regency high society with magic and sisters who become dashing bandits and gamblers to get revenge.

* Fog Season by Patrice Sarath
After the shocking events of last summer, the high society of Port Saint Frey has plenty to gossip about. Who was the Gentleman Bandit? Why hasn't he been captured? And what really happened that night when the Guildmaster disappeared? When the Guild hires Abel Fresnel, a detective with special powers of his own, to find the answers, Tesara and Yvienne Mederos have to avoid his probing questions and keep mum about their role in the events of that dark night. Everything's more or less under control until a dead man turns up in the dumbwaiter...

Coming in March

* New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Color edited by Nisi Shawl

Short Stories:

* A Priest of Vast and Distant Places by Cassandra Khaw

* Nothing to Fear, Nothing to Fear by Senaa Ahmed

* Bourbon, Sugar, Grace by Jessica Reisman

Any chance of a signing for this book soon? I picked up signed copies of the series previously, and I'd love to add a signed HC to round out the set...!
