  1. Good selection. Pity that Mark Henderson's recently-published "Perilaus" didn't make it - I read it after seeing a five-star review on the Barnes & Noble site, then posted a review of my own on Amazon. Very distinctive, very different, very well-written book - with an ending that's both shocking and satisfying.
