January Booklog.

From our LibraryThing and my one-liner Twitter reviews...

Mills, K.E.

Witches Incorporated
K. E. Mills pseudo-Edwardian magical spy capers continue with colliding mysteries in an airship factory.

2009
Crowther, Pete

Postscripts
Peter Crowther's anthology series starts off with a mixed bag of the PS publishing usual suspects.

2005
Strahan, Jonathan

Engineering Infinity
Jonathan Strahan's collection of modern hard SF hits more than it misses. Stross and Barnes stand out.

2010
Lovegrove, James

The Hope
James Lovegrove's first novel wraps dark parable in its horrific eternal ship on an infinite ocean. Powerful.

2002
Harris, Charlaine

Grave Secret
Charlaine Harris' mystery finally reveals what happened to Harper's lost sister. Dark family secrets will out.

2010
Boyett, Steven R.

Elegy Beach
Steven Boyett's tale of a post-apocalyptic magical California adds rave culture to Earth Abides. Excellent stuff!

2009
Ishida, TatsuyaSinfest Volume 1
Tatsuya Ishida's early webcomics collected. Irreverent goodness with a moral core.
2009
Paul, Graham Sharp

The Battle for Commitment Planet
Graham Sharp Paul's milsf sets Helfort as guerilla as he tries to rescue his girl. Book 4.

2010
Lovegrove, James

The Age of Odin
James Lovegrove delivers Life on Mars on Asgard with squadies and a Bob Calvert soundtrack. Awesome!

2010
Hoyt, Sarah A.

Darkship Thieves
Sarah Hoyt's Heinlein-lite SF romance fails to ignite. Mildly competent SF at best, sending in the clones.

2010
Kadrey, Richard

Sandman Slim
Richard Kadrey delivers post-Gaiman urban fantasy noir. Punching and snark in LA with the ultimate ex-con.

2010
Briggs, Patricia

Bone Crossed
Patricia Briggs pits Mercy Thompson against a renegade vampire in Spokane. A well-written urban fantasy.

2010
Also read (on my phone), thanks to the CD-ROM archive at Fifth Imperium, a couple of Baen ebooks, Into The Looking Glass and Vorpal Blade. By John Ringo and Travis Taylor, they turned out to be rather fun milsf planetary romances. Still, I'm not sure if I'd have read them any other way...
