Book in the Mail (W/E 2012-06-22)

Only one book this week, but (a) I am NOT complaining because I’ve got plenty of books to read and (b) the book I did receive is one of two or three of my most anticipated SF novels publishing this year.

Caliban’s War (The Expanse #2) by James S.A. Corey (Orbit Trade Paperback 05/22/2012) – Leviathan Wakes was just about my favorite science fiction novel published in 2011. I’m really looking forward to reading this one, which Mark has already given a big thumbs up.

We are not alone.

On Ganymede, breadbasket of the outer planets, a Martian marine watches as her platoon is slaughtered by a monstrous supersoldier. On Earth, a high-level politician struggles to prevent interplanetary war from reigniting. And on Venus, an alien protomolecule has overrun the planet, wreaking massive, mysterious changes and threatening to spread out into the solar system.

In the vast wilderness of space, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante have been keeping the peace for the Outer Planets Alliance. When they agree to help a scientist search war-torn Ganymede for a missing child, the future of humanity rests on whether a single ship can prevent an alien invasion that may have already begun . . .

Caliban's War is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the critically acclaimed Leviathan Wakes.
