Books Received: Durham, Electric Velocipede, Marxism, and More

Jeff VanderMeer • September 6th, 2009 @ 9:27 am • Culture


(Well, here are three books that couldn’t be more different if they tried…)

Honestly, the number of books entering the house each day has become a torrent, impossible to keep up with, let alone photograph. So this is just a selection of material that’s come in over the last couple weeks. I’ll try to get back on a regular schedule of listing/photographing books received soonish. Of special note–the Marxism book co-edited by China Mieville and the new EV. (I love EV, but now that they’re in the smaller format, I really wish they’d switch to a single-column format. There’s a reason that books in that size, like anthos and novels, aren’t published in two-columns. Anyway, it’s beautiful but it’s hard for me to read.)

    Wow, lots of very interesting-looking titles to read there! The Howard, Mieville, and Bacigalupi books are particularly compelling.

    What the heck is Cancer Vixen?

    Can’t wait till I get the extra cash for The Windup Girl and The Quiet War. Very excited about both of those.

  3. Larry says:

    I hope my copy of EV arrives soon. Will have to place orders on the Durham, Lake, McAuley, and of course that Marxism book.
