Sue's Saturday Suggestions #28

Blowing My Own Trumpet

I was shocked and amazed to see myself mentioned in SF Signal’s Podcast #170, which gave the results of Your Favorite Science Fiction and Fantasy Websites, Publishers, Podcasts, Book Bloggers and Comics.

Interesting Books

(Descriptions from Goodreads)

The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa, review at Vampire Book Club

Don’t look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.

That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.

Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

The Six Gun Tarot by R.S. Belcher, review at Fangs for the Fantasy

Buffy meets Deadwood in a dark, wildly imaginative historical fantasy

Nevada, 1869: Beyond the pitiless 40-Mile Desert lies Golgotha, a cattle town that hides more than its share of unnatural secrets. The sheriff bears the mark of the noose around his neck; some say he is a dead man whose time has not yet come. His half-human deputy is kin to coyotes. The mayor guards a hoard of mythical treasures. A banker’s wife belongs to a secret order of assassins. And a shady saloon owner, whose fingers are in everyone’s business, may know more about the town’s true origins than he’s letting on.

A haven for the blessed and the damned, Golgotha has known many strange events, but nothing like the primordial darkness stirring in the abandoned silver mine overlooking the town. Bleeding midnight, an ancient evil is spilling into the world, and unless the sheriff and his posse can saddle up in time, Golgotha will have seen its last dawn…and so will all of Creation.

  1. A big congrats for the podcast mention. I have visited a lot of The Most Anticipated 2013 lists and have discovered a few that I was not aware of and was reminded to start series where bloggers are eagerly awaiting new installments. Great post.
