Feb 1999, 256pp, hardcover, 1st ed.)
One of the best story-tellers of the 20th century. What more can we say?
If you haven't read any of Neil's books, you are in for a treat. This is
a fairytale for our times, accessible all readers of all genres — EVERYONE
loves it. Try it. Honest. You will gain a new perspective on life, and
gain a new friend in the voice of the storyteller himself.
For those who read this in graphic comics format, be aware that some of
the original text, cut for editorial or space reasons, has been restored
in this edition.
We still don't have our comped copy and are unsure if Neil's acknowledgment
to the production editor (N.C .Hanger), got in or not — if not, well, we
trust now you know. And we know Neil knows. <smile>
of Honor, David Weber et al.
(Baen Books, Feb 1999, 352pp., hardcover)
Another short story anthology set in the Honor Harrington "world" by the
acclaimed SF writer David Weber. This one is in hardcover, which credits
how well the first anthology was received. A sample story by Weber is baen.com
— we enjoyed the entire collection very much, but then, we're suckers
for more stories about Honor and treecats! We suspect you may be too, once
you read some of them.
& Alex's Guide to Web Publishing, Philip Greenspun
Kaufmann, Jan 1999, 450pp, paperback, color illustrated)
A truly accessible volume on database-backed web publishing by one of the
few people on this earth who makes this editor feel stupid & untalented.
And yet, he was gracious enough to accept manuscript reviews from her.
For herself, she owes Greenspun a debt of grattitude for teaching her,
in few words and deliciously readable instructions, how & why database-backed
web services are the Way to Go on the web for publishing anything and everything.
Working on the Net will never be the same for Windhaven after Greenspun's
book landed on our desk. If you read it, your websites will never be the
same again — all for very good, and very profitable reasons.
This volume is enhanced even further by the author's luscious photography,
at which he is equally talented. (Greenspun is the author/photographer
of the well-acclaimed Travels with Samantha, which can be read in
full at his site on the MIT server: photo.net.
For that matter, so can this book!)
If you were wondering, Alex is the fine-looking pup to Philip's left.
Apocalypse Troll, David Weber
(Baen Books, Jan 1999, 288pp, hardcover)
is one of David Weber's earlier-written books, revamped, polished, and
finally published by Baen. It is a "first encounter" book, with a twist.
It is a step away from his acclaimed Honor Harrington novels, and lets
us see the versatility of his writing abilities. We highly recommend it,
and can point you to sample chapters available at baen.com.
Last Dragonlord, Joanne Bertin
(Tor Books, Dec 1998, 400pp, hardcover)
A first novel, this is, as Booklist said in their review, "a winning
fantasy epic." We thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to Bertin's world,
replete with dragnlords who can change themselves into dragons, mysteries
to be solved, political intrigues to be uncovered, and a deeply believable
sense to the story underlying a surprisingly fresh plot. We look forward
to seeing more from this author in the future, and certainly to the next
novel in this series!
Books, Dec 1998, 384pp, hardcover)
A new space-opera by one of the pioneers in science fiction — this long-awaited
novel is one of his very best. The synopsis from the publisher says it
well: "One of science fiction's most treasured visionaries tells the story
of an expedition into the far reaches of the galaxy, where answers to mankind's
greatest questions await."
Poul Anderson's stories were some of the first science fiction many of
the staff at Windhaven read in their younger years. We were thrilled to
have this pass over our desks and highly recommend it to anyone who looks
at the stars and ... wonders.
Burning Bride, Margaret Lawrence
(Avon/Twilight, Nov 1998, 400pp, hardcover)
edited by Windhaven
highly reccomend these as books everyone should have in their home library.
Classics with understandable, clear annotations and good references and
bibliographies - everyone should read these at least once in their lives.
