EnregistrerI have yet another huge stack over at Reading Reality, but there are two books this week I really, really want to share.


Seven Stones to Stand or Fall by Diana Gabaldon
I've read the whole Outlander series, but have yet to watch the TV show. One of these days I'll get a round tuit. The book series is one of my all-time favorites, but there is always an extremely long time between books. The author does a stunning amount of research, and the books are always huge. So now it's three years and counting between Written in My Own Heart's Blood and the next book, tentatively titled Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone. While we wait, there's this marvelous collection of short fiction set in the Outlander-verse, including two all-new stories to tide us over the long wait.



Terminal Alliance by Jim C. Hines
And now for something completely different. Jim C. Hines writes fantasy, urban fantasy and now science fiction with more than a touch of humor. His Magic Ex Libris series is marvelous, and it is dear to this librarian's heart, because it's all about the magic in books. But in Hines' first foray into science fiction, it looks like he's turned the humor dial up to eleven, while still telling what looks like a terrific story. Zombie spaceship janitors on a mission to save the universe. You read that right - Zombie Janitors on a Spaceship, out to save everyone and everything - at least as long as they manage to control their appetite for brains.
