UPDATE: OK, there's that.
The good and the bad news about Trump is you figure he probably doesn’t mean half of what he’s saying. But which half? - Glenn Reynolds

This includes Dickson's Spacepaw and Spacial Delivery. Also included is a story by Ben Bova. All involve Dickson's bear-like Dilbians. I remember reading the Dickson pieces but the Bova story was new to me. All involve a human dropped into an unfamiliar culture who is forced to survive by his wits and...well read it. You won't regret it. Dickson and Bova are always worth your time.
The cover is neat. Love it but it really has nothing to do with the contents. Same for the title.

The latest in Stirling's Amberverse series. I've not read one yet that I haven't liked. It progresses the story without usual padding you get late in other series. It is up to Stirling's usual high standard. If you are new to the Amberverse this is not the book for you. Start with Dies the Fire. You'll find your way here eventually. Highly Recommended.

Hey it's John Ringo playing in Larry Correia's world and just as good as you would expect. I shelled out for the eARC, and there are a few typos*. They're the only thing wrong with it. You can buy the eARC or wait 'til December. Your choice.
*Not a bitch. Normal since the eARC is unproofed.

Police said the incident Sunday afternoon in Shawnee began when two suspects hit a woman in the head from behind as she was putting her child in her car.BUT didn't our anti-gun media tell us that a good guy with a gun is useless and only endangers the innocent? Too bad he didn't nail the second evil git as well.
Shawnee police Maj. Dan Tennis says a person in the parking lot who tried to help was shot several times. Another good Samaritan then shot one of the suspects, who died at the scene.
The second suspect fled but was caught near the store.
The female victim and the other person who was shot were both hospitalized in critical condition.

Another alternate history from Conroy. This time the Nazis withdraw into an Alpine Redoubt in hopes that they can draw the war out so the Allies will agree to a conditional surrender so Nazi Germany can survive. If you've read Conroy's other novels then this will offer little surprise. It is standard Conroy. That is not a complaint. It is a recommendation.

The GOP's problem is that people want their free shit, and will vote for a lyin, cheatin, murderin, stroke-havin, bribe-takin, becankled harridan and reinforce the failed policies of a feckless beta-male/manchurian-candidate president simply because the other guy is a white blowhard who says mean things. - Ed FriedmanH/T to John.
If I've read this before, it was so long ago I've forgotten it. Picked it up for free over at Project Gutenberg. I started reading Piper in the ACE editions. After Heinlein, he is my favorite of the old timers. This is dated but the tale of a society divided between the literate and illiterate and the conflict between them is well done. It's a quick read and highly recommended.
