Ouch, it's been that long since I posted? Well, I haven't been able to settle to much recently when it came to books. I was working on sorting through my comics (over 20 boxes) to try to get rid of at least one-third and another box or two of books and other stuff because I had 11 boxes of my father's books arriving in early September.

However, in September, two fun books arrived. Martha Wells had a collection of stories set in her Raksura world published with the imaginative title of Stories of the Raksura, volume I. It contains a story set post-The Siren Depths where Moon and Stone have to find what has happened to Jade and some warriors after they disappear while on a trading mission. The second story tells of Indigo and Cloud. We had found out that Cloud (a consort) had been stolen by Indigo from another court in an earlier book, but not the details. The third story, "The Forest Boy," is previously published and is about Moon as a young boy trying to survive. Loads of fun, and highly recommended for anyone who liked the Raksura novels.

The second book was Exo by Steven Gould. A direct sequel to Impulse, it focuses on "Cent", the daughter of Millie and Davy. After finding that she could jump in the previous book, now she plans some very high-flying achievements now that she's extended the capabilities of her father. They're also still trying to track down the shadow organization that's been after all jumpers for years. Full of orbital mechanics discussion, so if you don't like a some math in your books--too bad!
