The books I am, at the moment, most looking forward to receiving and reading are these:

Fiction

[INDENT]Shorefall by Robert Jackson Bennett

. . .
Well, I got the book, Shorefall, read about 100 pages, and gave up. The first book in the series, Foundryside, was great. Shorefall had, for me, a significant flaw -- it seemed like every other word spoken by a character was a 4-letter word (to say it politely). I'm not a prude, and I don't mind the language when it advances the story, but overload is overload and unnecessary is unnecessary.

I wouldn't recommend the book to anyone who lacks a very high tolerance for "foul" language. I've scratched this author off my to-buy list.
