Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether they be physical or digital. This includes books bought (my wife would say I buy too many), borrowed (a rare occurrence), and received for review (which I’m trying to reign in).
New Acquisitions: Paperback Treasures
A pair of new arrivals in the mailbox this week…
The Eunuch’s Heir pairs with The Singer’s Crown, the first Singer’s Legacy book by Elaine Isaak, which I managed to scrounge up a copy of earlier this year. They are available in new trade paperback editions, but I love the old mass market paperbacks.
An Accident of Stars by Foz Meadows is a queer, feminist, portal fantasy with complex women, matriarchies, bi/lesbian poly relationships, and trans representation by a genderqueer author. The question isn’t why I want to read it, it’s why the hell has it taken me so long to put it on my TBR?
An exciting week on the review front, beginning with this bad boy, a book I’ve been waiting to hold in my hands since I saw the press release last year.
Captain Moxley and the Embers of the Empire by Dan Hanks [Sept 8, 2020] is the story of Samantha Moxley, an ex-Spitfire pilot who finds herself dragged into a race against a shadowy government agency. With former Nazis and otherworldly monsters on her trail, she and her archaeologist sister race to unlock the secrets of Atlantis.
Landing in my digital mail box this week, I also had my request for Tied Down? by Stephen Davidson approved. A femdom and bondage romance, it follows an ambitious researcher whose fetish for bondage makes him easy prey for the women he interviews as part of study of feminine dominance in the UK. It’s supposed to be a suspense-packed who’s who mystery. I’m curious to give it a read.
New Acquisitions: Digital Titles
A trio of digital downloads this week that tickled my fancy.
Transformations Tingles: Britt-Ney by Wayne and Ann Triskelion is a short side-story in their Transformations universe, and given how much I enjoyed Transformations – Witnesses, I’m definitely eager to read more.
The Hauntedest Whorehouse in Texas by Wolfe Hans is one I picked up purely for the title alone, but I love the idea of a desperate reality show couple creating the perfect home out of a murder mansion . . . and being forced to face secrets of both the house and their pasts.
My Final Girl Fantasies by Vampira von Flick was another must-grab, a hilarious and sexy B-Movie romp through vintage horror monsters from Dracula to the Creature from the Black Lagoon, with a perpetual final girl leading the way.
