Saturday afternoon genre links.
The under-caffeinated version.

Still catching up on the things I've got bookmarked from this past month. More links for you!
Strange Horizons reviews Dangerous Offspring by Steph Swainston, Mindscape by Andrea Hairston, Bad Blood by Rhiannon Lassiter, Blood Engines by T.A. Pratt, One for Sorrow by Chris Barzak, Ink by H/Al Duncan and In the Cities of Coin and Spice by Cat Valente (a joint review), The Awakened Mage by Karen Miller, Stealing Light by Gary Gibson, Till Human Voices Wake Us by Mark Budz, and The Red Men by Matthew de Abaitua.

SF Site has new reviews of Queen of Candesce by Karl Schroeder, A Companion to Wolves by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette, First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde, Ice, Iron & Gold by S.M. Stirling, The Wannoshay Cycle by Michael Jasper, Thief With No Shadow by Emily Gee and many more.

The February issue of SFRevu is up, with new reviews of Whitechapel Gods by S.M. Peters (I read this as a manuscript last year; it's really amazing for a debut novel and an extraordinary work of steampunk), Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay, Dust by Elizabeth Bear, A Rush of Wings by Adrian Phoenix, Bone Song by John Meaney, Now You're One of Us by Asa Nonami, Seekers of the Chalice by Brian Cullen, The Execution Channel by Ken Macleod, Victory Conditions by Elizabeth Moon, The Red Wolf Conspiracy by Robert V.S. Redick and many more.

I missed the January issue of SF Revu, but there were some good reviews up, among them: Best American Fantasy edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer and Matt Cheney, Troy: Shield of Thunder by the late David Gemmell, The Princes of the Golden Cage by Nathalie Mallet, Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs, Gentleman of the Road by Michael Chabon, Dragon Outcast by E.E. Knight, Firstborn by Stephen Baxter and Arthur C. Clarke, Airman by Eoin Colfer, and lots more!

At the Agony Column, Rick Kleffel also talks about Whitechapel Gods. (And I am really serious, kids - this is the book I am going to keep pestering you to buy, like I did with Shadowbridge by Greg Frost. Whitechapel Gods is special and I think S.M Peters is going to go places. You heard it here first.)
That's all you get for today. I'm heading off to the Met, and then a comedy show with House Guest and somewhere in there I need to remember to pick up cat food.

Hey La Gringa. I was wondering, you used to link to the Kirkus reviews as well but lately I havent't seen them. Now the Publisher's weekly or Library Journal weeklies are always up at their site but Kirkus does not do this as far as I can see on their site. Am I wrong? How did you get them?
