I just read the advance bound manuscript of fun YA novel from Carrie Vaughn entitled Study Abroad, but it won’t be published until January 2017 [from TOR]. I also just finished an ARC by a new author, Gerald Brandt, entitled The Courier, which is about a young woman who is motorcycle courier in futuristic California — very fast-moving and it did draw me in. It’s coming out from DAW in hardcover in March. Among books already published, I enjoyed The Six Gun Tarot from R.S. Belcher, and while it is a Tor book, I didn’t even notice who had published it until after I’d read it. And, of course, there’s my non-fiction, this time Malcolm Gladwell’s David and Goliath.

    What did you think of the book David and Goliath? I just finished M. Gladwell’s book Outliers.

    I am finishing up your book The Death of Chaos and you mentioned “outliers” and smiled when I did–even though it was written years before.

    1. In David and Goliath, Gladwell asks a fundamental series of questions, about what power is and where it actually exists, the kind of questions that too few politicians and military figures ever even consider. I’m not sure I agree with all the examples he gives, but the basic point of the book — that situations and events are all too often not what we think they are — is definitely valid.
