O’Reilly, award season, mango, mint, and more

Tags: , , ,

This week we added the first 50 or so titles from 2000+ O’Reilly Media titles we’ll be adding this month. O’Reilly are the ne plus ultra of computing books and we are very happy to be able to bring their excellent (and excellently made) DRM-free ebooks to Weightless. I used to love stocking the O’Reilly catalog—all those gnus and aardvarks and all kinds of animals! I know we have some readers who lean towards reading manuals for fun and hope that you’ll be tempted to pick them up here. (If any computational-minded readers want to write about O’Reilly books for us, drop me a line!)

New this week from the great north, Helen Marshall’s Hair Side, Flesh Side. LCRW readers will remember her Jane Austen story, “The Book of Judgement,” although I fear the book might be too spooky for me!

To change things up, we also have with Nicky Garrett’s tasty-looking Mango and Mint: recipes inspired by the foods of the Arab world, India, and North Africa, such as Baba Ghanoush, Red Pepper Bulgur Salad, Spinach Pies, Harissa, Donuts in Syrup, and Indian favorites such as Apple Soup, Peanut Vada, Chana Masala with Green Chiles, and Mango Rice.

Electric Velocipede has a new issue out, #26. Subscriber copies went out a couple of days ago and you can get yours here for just a buck ninety-nine.

Award season, or at least finalist season, is in full flow so congratulations to more award finalists are due: first to R. A. MacAvoy whose Death and Resurrection is a finalist for the Mythopoeic Award finalist and and then the finalists for the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award have been announced. Below are the ones you can read here. Note that you can download the issue of Lightspeed with Ken Liu’s “The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species” free.

Coincidentally, you can read a short essay by Aliette de Bodard at the Book Smugglers this week on “Dragons, heroes and spaceships: pushing against received narratives.”
