Other August Books
In an effort to stop obsessing over my own book coming out tomorrow, I wanted to point out a few of the other books showing up in August. (I’ll add sales links for Kane and Klasky when they become available tomorrow.)
Wrong Ways Down [Amazon], by Stacia Kane. (August 6) For fans of Kane’s Downside series, I’ll just mention that this story is from Terrible’s point of view, which is something I suspect many of you will appreciate.
Dragonwriter: A Tribute to Anne McCaffrey and Pern [Amazon | B&N | Mysterious Galaxy], edited by Todd McCaffrey. (August 6) A collection of memories, essays, and insights about the creator of Pern.
Possession [Amazon | B&N | Mysterious Galaxy], by Kat Richardson. (August 6) Tor.com has an excerpt from Richardson’s latest Greywalker book here.
Single Witch’s Survival Guide, by Mindy Klasky. (August 13) This is the first volume of Klasky’s Jane Madison Academy series, where her librarian-witch opens a school for witches. Go Team Librarian! The first chapter is posted here.
Velveteen vs. The Multiverse, by Seanan McGuire. (Mid-August) I wrote the introduction for McGuire’s first delightful Velveteen collection, and I’m very excited to see the second coming out! Preorder from ISFiC Press here.
What are you looking forward to reading this month?

I’m impatient for Naomi Novik’s new Temeraire book : Blood Tyrant. Also, the new Ben Aaronovitch, too.

I can fill in some of the wait for Temeraire and Aaronovich with Kane. Am very pleased to be able to read something from Trouble’s POV — he’s such an interesting character. Thanks for the heads-up, Jim!
I’m going to be poking at my Nook beginning at midnight Eastern asking if it’s gotten Codex Born. Like a kid asking “Are we there yet?”
