It is the East and the promo post is the Sun!

*I’ll post late tomorrow — doing this on Sat. Night — and it might be a snippet or a Blast From The Past because I’m writing (yay.) – SAH*

Greetings to you ladies, gentlemen, and other such entities. From the depths of my shelly lair, I bring you books! New books, from three regular contributors to our beloved chaos here at According to Hoyt. I’ve minions to wrangle and naps to diligently pursue, so go enjoy the rest of your weekend with a new book!

As always, future entries can (and should!) be sent to my email. Happy reading!

The Colplatschki Chronicles Book 6

The Eastern Empire shattered the Turkowi at the Great Plate River… or did it?

Emperor Andrew Babenburg has turned his attention to more important matters: rediscovering lost Lander secrets and technology. Tivolia teeters on the brink of civil war, Morloke and Scheel have divided into two provinces, and far to the south of the Empire, a messenger arrives from the Rajtan of the Turkowi: convert to the worship of the true goddess or pay the price. The Patricians of Scheel have other concerns.

Spring comes to Colplatschki with hell and high water.

Emergency Medical services on the Moon present new challenges, not all of which come with the territory. Kristine is an EMT in the Lunar Ambulance Service. Budget cuts and inadequate equipment make it increasingly difficult for her to do her job. William Schneider is finding that some of his subordinates have ideas of their own, ideas contrary to the corporate philosophy he is building, ideas that lead to shortcuts and trading lives for money. They find themselves riding their problems on a collision course to avoid disaster.

Dragon Noir

Pixie for Hire Book 3

The pixie with the gun has come home to see his princess crowned a queen and live in peace. But nothing is ever easy for Lom. A gruesome discovery on his doorstep interrupts their plans and sends Lom off on a mission to save not one, but two worlds. It’s personal this time and the stakes are higher than ever before. With friends falling and the enemy gathering, Bella and Lom must conquer the worst fears and monsters Underhill can conjure. Failure is not on the agenda.

  1. OK, I sort-of took Sarah’s recommendations… On Alma’s and Cedar’s selection I switched off to Book 1 of the series. I will read them soonest, but spring cleaning is badly disrupting my reading schedule 😦

    1. I suppose in a way, this is a more forceful comment to the Sad Puppies 3 bruhaha… A recomendation/shout-out from Sarah carries more weight than a Hugo award. Such are the interesting times in which we live.

      1. No problem. This one stands alone and takes place about 100 years before _Elizabeth of Starland_, so if you read it “out of order,” you won’t lose anything.

    2. Though I endorse both of the books this Saturday, these are actually NOT my recommendations, just books Huns wrote and sent to Free Range Oyster to promo.

      1. That is the ‘shout-out’ part. The fact that a book is ‘authored by Huns’ is already an indicator that the author has their head in the correct place. I doubt FRO receives many SJWs submissions.
        Consider it a sign of the times and hopefully, our future of abundance. Until we get direct neural implants, I can’t possibly read *all* the novels being written. I figure novels by people that know Sarah are safer than say endorsements by Teresa Nielsen Hayden or Pat Cadigan. It took only reading a single comment by each to allow me to totally disregard their opinions on most things.

      1. A tri-layer perfecta. Bottom layer salmon cake, next a lovely potato pancake topped with a Virginia blue crab cake. Some of us are allergic to eggs you know.

  2. Hubs says I have to wait for Mother’s Day for Dragon Noir … grrrrrrr … wishing *I* had a dragon …

    And I hadn’t heard about EMT in the pipeline, so there’s something new to look for …


        1. Yes, but now I’m Jonesin’ for the eighties, when Baen was just starting out, and people still believed in O’Neill, and stories like that were everywhere.

          1. Unfortunately all too true. The story was set in what I had hoped would be our 2015, back when I was young and foolish. Perhaps not all the way there, but closer than we are now. O’Neill’s ideas are workable, but unfortunately we don’t seem to have the will to follow visions.
