2014-05-31: Spring haul post

Sorry about the lack of posting recently. Work has been rather problematic, and also very distracting, and on my time away from work I've been relaxing rather than writing. Didn't even get reviews written while on vacation. I am still hoping to catch up on reviews, however.

In the meantime, I have been reading some, and buying more books. Here's a new haul list.

Elizabeth Bear — Steles of the Sky (sff)
Katherine Boo — Behind the Beautiful Forevers (non-fiction)
John Chu — The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere (sff)
Lewis Dartnell — The Knowledge (non-fiction)
David Lochbaum, et al. — Fukushima (non-fiction)
Ben Goldacre — Bad Pharma (non-fiction)
Mira Grant — Parasite (sff)
Thomas Olde Heuvelt — The Ink Readers of Doi Saket (sff)
Mary Robinette Kowal — The Lady Astronaut of Mars (sff)
Madeline Miller — The Song of Achilles (historical)
Edmund S. Morgan — American Slavery, American Freedom (non-fiction)
Richard Rhodes — The Making of the Atomic Bomb (non-fiction)
Lee Smolin — The Trouble with Physics (non-fiction)
Charles Stross — Equoid (sff)
Charles Stross — Neptune's Brood (sff)

This is a bit of a grab-bag, including a variety of non-fiction that I had recommended to me by various people. I also picked up the remaining Hugo nominees for best novel that won't be in the voter packet, and the short fiction from Tor.com that was nominated and was available for free from Amazon for the Kindle.

I read The Knowledge while I was on vacation, and it's in my large backlog of pending reviews.
