Re: June 2013 SF&F Books (OT)

Items that I know nothing about but was compelled to click on due to the beauty of the cover and/or the interest provoked by the title:
  • Metro Winds by Isobelle Carmody (title and cover)
  • The 'Geisters by David Nickle (title and cover)
  • The Stranger by Anna Banks (cover)
  • Wisp of a Thing by Alex Bledsoe (title)
Now off to read about them to see if they might be as interesting as they appear at first blush.

And here, for the record, I will state how HORRIBLE all the covers for the reprints of Anne McCaffrey's novels have been. Ugh. They all look like cards for a new CW series. (Actually, I'm not sure they're all THAT bad, it's just that compared to the beautiful covers from the 80s and 90s, they are vastly inferior. I cut my fantastical imagination's baby teeth on the covers for The Dragonriders of Pern and the Talent series.)
