CLOUD UNBOUND

Libraries, ebooks, publishing, discovery

Noted, Duly

Earlier this month, we welcomed Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, Spain’s biggest producer of ebooks, to the Cloud. My commitment to building a coherent collection of Spanish-language titles for all ages grows with the mining of lists from Editorial Egales (lesbian fiction), Annick Press (children’s nonfiction), and Rourke Educational Media (children’s and juvenile nonfiction).
It’s all in CAT. Meow!

"The first chapters of this are the best I’ve read about 9/11, because they conjure the strange and extraordinary exhilaration of those early days after the attack, the heightened sense of existence that accompanies being present at the moment the world was transformed, however tragically."

The Economist holds forth about Joseph O’Neill’s Netherland (2008, Pantheon), cited in several sources as one of the best examples of fiction about 9/11, first and foremost Matthew Kirschenbaum’s syllabus for his spring 2014 class, The Literature of 9/11 at the University of Maryland, College Park.

See my list of outstanding 9/11 novels in CAT. (I promise to lighten the mood in my feed soon!)

Women Are the Future

As pointed out above, the fairer sex dominated the Hugo Awards last night in London. While Macmillan’s Tor imprint took home most of the brass, Ann Leckie’s debut novel, Ancillary Justice (from Hachette’s Orbit imprint), earned the overall title of Best Novel. Not too bad.
