More April book arrivals

More books arrived in the mail. Most of these are new. I'll mention the two reprints first. (Click to enlarge.)

A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs features a reproduction of the original first edition (1917) cover artwork by  Frank E. Schoonover. Schoonover's interior illustrations are also reproduced in this Library of America edition. Barrayar by Lois McMaster Bujold, is a hardback reprint from NESFA Press of a novel originally published in 1991. It went on to win the Hugo Award for best novel, presented in 1992.

Two novels marketed as Young Adult: The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi is the second in his series begun with Ship Breaker, which won the Michael L. Printz Award. Black Heart by Holly Black concludes her Curse Workers trilogy. Prior volumes in the series were White Cat and Red Glove.

Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal is the sequel to her first novel, Shades of Milk and Honey. The Killing Moon by N. K. Jemisin is the first in her new Dreamblood series.

Radiant Days by Elizabeth Hand follows prior book Illyria. The Troupe by Robert Jackson Bennett is a supernatural take on vaudeville.

Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders by Samuel R. Delany is an 800 page novel written between 2004 and 2011, surely his most massive novel since Dhalgren. Lost Everything by Brian Francis Slattery is a post-apocalytic story and it features a striking sepia cover.

Sacré Bleu by Christopher Moore, set in fin de siècle Paris, features a cast of historical figures that includes Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. The cover is shown here with and without the discreet wrap.
