If time and money were infinite, this is what we would buy and read.
The Thieves of Manhattan
by Adam Langer
A thriller about a fake memoirist who tries to scam the publishing industry? This might be too inside-baseball for some, but it’s right up our alley.
Tongues of Serpents: A Novel of Temeraire
by Naomi Novik
It’s Patrick O’Brian meets Anne McCaffrey in this “flintlock fantasy” about the Napoleonic Wars fought with the aid of a dragon-borne air force. Inventive adventure fiction of the most readable sort. This is the sixth in the series. You can find an excerpt from the first, His Majesty’s Dragon, here.
