Joseph Lunieviez - Open Wounds
A book about a young man in New York learning stage fencing as an escape from the mean streets. The jacket matter suggests that it's a cross between The Book Thief and Gangs of New York. I don't know; I grabbed it because it's got a fencing foil on the cover:
Simon Garfield - Just My Type
A book about fonts. Seriously, it's a book about type face fonts. It looks very clever.
John Sandford - Bad Blood
Sandford, as you know, is one of my guilty pleasures. This is one of the Virgil Flowers novels. I haven't even read the jacket matter for this one.
Mark Charam Newton - Nights of Villjamur
Dark gloomy sci fi with an East Indian flavor. The sequel to this was on the new book shelf, so I went hunting and grabbed the first book. The jacket matter compares Newton to Mieville and Richard K. Morgan. I like both Mieville and Morgan, so.
