Rivendell Reader #41. This is a very occasional magazine from the Rivendell Bicycle Works in the US, an unashamedly retrogrouch publication full of odd information about - well, this issue, trout fishing and some kooky diet, but mostly bicycles. http://www.yehudamoon.com/index.php?date=2008-02-14 is what it's like.

Ian Whates, The Noise Within. His stab at space opera. It's OK, but it suffers from sequelitis. The sequel is out, but this is really half of a bigger book, with things being established just in time for the end of this volume.

Steph Swainston, Above The Snowline. A fourth book in her Castle series. She's really, really good... and apparently was in the CU Roleplaying Society at the same time as me. It's technically fantasy, but it's as far from extruded fantasy product as you can get.

Flint & Drake, Destiny's Shield (finished), Fortune's Stroke, The Tide of Victory (started). More in the Belisarius series.

Eric Flint and David Weber, Torch of Freedom (started). A big fat book in Weber's Honor Harrington universe. Weber himself has jumped the shark, but I'm waiting to see how this one is. Flint tends to be an antidote to Weber's odious right-wing politics.
