If Only We Could Read Faster

New books for July 13, 2010
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.
