Love it! The final Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, The Crippled God, cover art. Just love it. (Thanks to Aidan)
I guess there's what's been called an "embargo" on reviews for Towers of Midnight, the penultimate volume in the widely-read Wheel of Time series. A couple bloggers of spoken about other bloggers "breaking the rules" in regards to holding off reviews until release day.
In my oh-so-humble opinion, I think it's just one more item in the publisher's bag of tricks. They say no, bloggers break the rules, more hype, etc., etc.
I don't really understand the point of the ARC unless it's to be read before the date of publication, especially with a big release like this. It is called "advanced" correct? And everyone is going to read it anyway.
1. The Heroes by Joe Abercrombie: Reviewed by Speculative Horizons - I'm dying to get my hands on this. All I have to say is Black Dow.
1. Fevre Dream by George R.R. Martin: Reviewed by The Speculative Scotsman - Been wanting to read this for a while, probably should just do it already.
1. Against All Things Ending by Stephen Donaldson: Reviewed by Speculative Book Review's Peter William - I own the first trilogy but never read it. It will happen. Oh, and this is a 10 out of 10 review. Not too shabby.
And that's the news...at least to me.
