Stacking the Shelves (35)

STSmall_thumb[2]_thumbTwo notes about this week’s stack. The Legend of Eli Monpress is an omnibus of the first three books in the series. I borrowed book one from my local library, and ran out of time before we moved, but I remember it an excellent antihero sword-and-sorcery type fantasy. It would be urban if it were in our world, which it isn’t. What it is, until the end of February, is on sale in ebook.

About the print. I dropped into the utterly glorious Third Place Books. We eat at Third Place Commons every Friday. It’s near us and a kind of über food court. Lots of choices, shared common space, but absolutely not fast food. I’ve resisted print but, but, but…I listened to Scholar and Princeps, the two books that preceed Imager’s Battalion. I couldn’t resist the idea of seeing all Modesitt’s slightly quirky names in print, and having the maps in front of me. And I wanted to give back to the local independent book store. Oh happy day, there’s a book 7 coming out at the end of May. Antiagon Fire. I’m on fire with anticipation. (Yes, I know. Bad pun)
