Waiting on Wednesday 08/07/19

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

False Value by Ben Aaronovitch (November 19, 2019 by DAW)

Not only was I ecstatic when I found out there will be an eighth Rivers of London book, I was even more excited by the release date which would be in 2019 – let’s hope it won’t get pushed back the way it was with some of the previous books because I don’t think I can handle a long wait. As usual, we have a brilliant cover, even if the color choice is a bit unusual for this series!

“Now in hardcover, the eighth book of the bestselling Rivers of London urban fantasy series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.

Peter Grant is facing fatherhood, and an uncertain future, with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm. Rather than sit around, he takes a job with émigré Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner’s brand new London start up—the Serious Cybernetics Company.

Drawn into the orbit of Old Street’s famous ‘silicon roundabout’, Peter must learn how to blend in with people who are both civilians and geekier than he is. Compared to his last job, Peter thinks it should be a doddle. But magic is not finished with Mama Grant’s favourite son.

Because Terrence Skinner has a secret hidden in the bowels of the SCC. A technology that stretches back to Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. A secret that is just as magical as it technological—and just as dangerous.”

  1. Tho I haven’t read the October Man yet (but it is downloaded and ready for me as soon as I finish my current audiobook), I am so happy we are going back to Peter. I’m very excited for this book. And yes, lets hope it doesn’t get pushed back

  3. Wow – No.8 – I wonder how many books will be in the series all told – I suppose if it’s still going strong then there’s no reason to stop. I still need to go back and start this series over.
