New Release Tuesday in the Realms of Sci-Fi and Fantasy



Anathem by Neal Stephenson (Author)
Product Description
For ten years Fraa Erasmas, a young avout, has lived in a cloistered sanctuary for mathematicians, scientists, and philosophers, protected from the corrupting influences of the outside world. But before the week is out, both the existence he abandoned and the one he embraced will stand poised on the brink of cataclysmic change—and Erasmas will become a major player in a drama that will determine the future of his world, as he follows his destiny to the most inhospitable corners of the planet . . . and beyond.

Anathem is the latest miraculous invention by the New York Times bestselling author of Cryptonomicon and The Baroque Cycle—a work of astonishing scope, intelligence, and imagination.

The Sword of the Lady: A Novel of the Change (Change Series) by S. M. Stirling (Author)
Described as “an epic of survival and rebirth” Rudi Mackenzie has journeyed far across the land that was once the United States of America, hoping to find the source of the world-altering event that has come to be known as The Change. His final destination is Nantucket, an island overrun with forest, inhabited by a mere two hundred people who claim to have been transported there from out of time.Only one odd stone house remains standing. Within it, Rudi finds a beautifully made sword waiting for him—and once he takes it up, nothing will ever be the same…

Nancy, what age group is this aimed at? Did I miss that? I'm wondering if it's YA - or for a younger reader.

I really enjoy this new release feature on your blog, Nancy. It's a great way to introduce readers to the range of stories available in this genre. The Sword of the Lady sounds especially interesting. I think I'll check that one out.

Gotta run with the big dog, Marvin, on this one. I liked the sound of, "The Sword of the Lady." How cool is findin an old sword--or old anything for that matter.

Sigh, maybe Santa will be good to me this year and bring lots of books. My wish list is so long, I hope they don't strain his back.

Nice posts, Nancy.
