Among the books that caught my eye were the following two titles (nothing else really caught my imagination this month):
• The publisher’s site has a brief description, and a Q&A with McKillip
Science fiction novel about a monastic order on the planet Arbre that maintains secular knowledge, threatened by an extraterrestrial force that portends global disaster.
• The publisher’s site has this description, with its ‘browse inside’ feature.
• Stephenson’s page for the book links excerpts from reviews, a Wiredinterview, a trailer and video interviews, seven tracks of music “from the World of Anathem“, and excerpts from the book’s Dictionary.
