Already read it. Fairly recently too. But, it would have fit the bill if I hadn't.

It could be sf, fantasy, mystery, thriller, or even something else.

You can look at the books I've read and my ratings here. https://www.librarything.com/catalog/PilotBob

I just finished Soldiers! part one, and was underwhelmed, so won't be reading party two.
K.B. Spangler's Rachel Peng books are pretty good, quick reads.

Stephen Ruin Cobb's Bones Burnt Black is a hard sci-fi novel with a murder mystery plot.

Kelly Thompson's The Girl Who Would Be King is a good one, as well... Slightly different take on the superhero genre.

Sounds good. Bought. I'll give it a try.

Just finished "The Lark and the Wren" by Mercedes Lackey, which I bought from Baen in August 2001. A lightweight but enjoyable fantasy about a peasant girl's attempts to fulfil her dream of becoming a bard. Like all (that I've read, at least) of Lackey's work, it involves no great mental effort to read, but it's a pleasant enough way to fill a few hours. Recommended.

A very good series indeed. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Well, 15% in and I'm giving up. Not as 'bad' as the Henry James, but just not for me.

Next up: Analog SF/F for July/August 2015.
