Midnight Riot ~ Ben Aaronovitch (2011) fantasy (298 pgs)
Fun, clever urban fantasy, magic on the police force in London. Lots of historical referencing, a good read.
No Way to Treat a First Lady ~ Christopher Buckley (2002) novel (288 pgs)
Another winner from Buckley, skewering both politics and the legal system in a hilarious satire of the worst of both.
Frank R. Paul, Father of Science Fiction Art ~ Stephen D. Korshak (ed) (2009) bio/art book (127 pgs)
Wonderful collection of the work of classic sf artist Paul. When you think of early sf images, it will often be his work!
Zeitgeist ~ Bruce Sterling (2000) novel (280 pgs)
Often not sure what was going on, but always having a good time on the ride with this one.
Bossypants ~ Tina Fey (2011) autobiography (284 pgs)
Funny, smart writing-- plus she nails what it is to be able to do good improv/collaboration in only two pages!
Vernon God Little ~ DBC Pierre (2003) novel (278 pgs)
Huck Finn meets Catcher in the Rye, with much more cursing, in this pointed satire of modern justice system.
Why Evolution is True ~ Jerry A. Coyne (2009) science, evolution (276 pgs)
Presents the clear, obvious evidence of the evolution of life, and the process of discovering this fact. A good read.
Robots versus Slime Monsters ~ A. Lee Martinez (2013) short stories, fantasy (201 pgs)
Ten wonderful new short stories based off of characters from his ten previous novels. Another great Martinez read.
The Apocalypse Codex ~ Charles Stross (2012) science fiction (355 pgs)
More bizarre advetnures of the agents of the super-secret Laundry, scary love-child of Ian Fleming and HPL. Great fun.
Pretty Monsters ~ Kelly Link (2010) short stories, fantasy (404 pgs)
Wonderful voice, subtle but engrossing, creepy ideas hidden in everyday observations of people, a great read.
