If Only We Could Read Faster (for August 9, 16, 23)

If time and money were infinite this is what we would buy and read.
This post brought to you by no time for plot synospses.

  

Machine Man
Max Barry
I read the first draft of this book (you can, too!) and seriously enjoyed it. It would take a fucking-up of significant proportions to turn it into a bad book, and nothing I have read by Max Barry makes me think that’s what happened. This will be my first time with a director’s cut of a novel and I can’t wait.
(Book trailer.)

Ready Player One
Ernest Cline
The book trailer for this one also serves as a litmus test. If you get a wave of nostalgia while watching it, then this is probably for you.

Luminarium
by Alex Shakar
I know pretty much Jack about this book, but… but… I did read this superb article by Shakar about the fate of his first novel, The Savage Girl, and on the basis of that I will now read whatever he chooses to put between two covers. Or, you know, into an ePub file, or… gah! I hate shopping for new metaphors!
