Genre Blend New Releases – November 2015

We’re starting to hit the winter doldrums of publishing, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some marvelous blends being published. The biggest names are probably Nora Roberts, who has a new paranoral trilogy at the beginning of the month and the new Pendergast novel from Preston and Child that sounds like a return to the horror-tinged thriller of Relic, the very first book in the series. My picks include Tower of Thorns by Marillier, second book in her fantasy series set in ancient Ireland. I also loved The Girl with Ghost Eyes, which is set in 19th century San Francisco’s Chinatown. Have a great November!

Genre Blend New Releases – October 2015

While the fall season of publishing seems thave the biggest month in September, there are plenty of great fall new releases that combine genres this month. I can personally recommend the latest from genre-blender David Wong which is just as funny as his horror/thriller blends like John Dies at the End, but couples his trademark violence with SF this time out.  Laura Anne Gilman’s latest is a weird west gaslamp fantasy set in a fresh take on the old west run by the Devil himself. I’m also looking forward to teh new Kate Morton, who writes like a dream and has a knack for historical settings. Another writer who always impresses is David Mitchell, and this time out he apparently is tackling the ghost story.  Count me in! New historical romances from Lisa Kleypas and Lorraine Heath are always welcome, as well. Finally, I haven’t read it yet, but I hear marvelous thing’s about another weird west tale called Wake of Vultures by Lila Bowen, so that’s on the top of my TBR list. Hopefully you will find a blend that’s calling your name as well.
