Brin, David. Brightness Reef. $22.95.
Yes, it's the first of the new Uplift Trilogy. Cover art by Michael Whelan shrunk tiny in Jamie S. Warren's Youll jacket design
"Ten years have passed since Dave Brin's award-winning Startide Rising concluded brilliantly with one of the most rousing battle-and-chase scenes in modern science fiction and the final image of Gillian Baskin thumbing her nose at the pursuing Galactic fleet. Like kids at a Saturday matinee short, we were left eagerly anticipating the next installment in the adventure: Did Streaker manage to elude the fleet? Did Tom and Toshio manage to make it through the transfer points in the fragile skiff? Is *anyone* (or anything) going to rescue Earth from the organised fanaticism of Galactic society? When Brin announced the publication of the sequel, Brightness Reef, earlier this year we had some hope that we would find out the answers.
"Well, we don't (yet). With Brightness Reef, Brin gives us a richly detailed, inventive, and challenging work which poses many more questions and answers almost none. This is a book which demands the reader's undivided attention for every single one of its 500-plus pages. It has complex, intertwining story lines in which every word counts. Brightness' pacing is almost glacial in the first third of the book as Brin carefully constructs a new world in his Uplift universe. The action picks up exponentially after that until the last 100 pages become a maelstrom of activity and intrigue. Those who enjoy a challenging read will be well rewarded by Brightness Reef.
"Brightness Reef is best enjoyed on its own terms without thinking of it as Startide's sequel. It is a great introduction to Brin's universe for newcomers as well as a worthy successor in the Uplift series. A word of advice to Startide readers: if you're at all tempted to skip ahead to the end, resist! The ending is best enjoyed at the proper time and you'll thank yourself for holding off until then."--Steve

Friedman, C. S. Crown of Shadows. $21.95.
Coldfire Trilogy 3: concludes trilogy begun by Black Sun Rising and When True Night Falls ($5.99 each).
"Worth the two year wait. She brings the story to a beautifully thought-out conclusion with some elegant and unexpected twists. I highly recommend this whole series. (I do not recommend reading this book on its own without having read the others. While everything really crucial to understanding what is happening is re-mentioned, what makes this such a good read is the complexity and depth of what is being tied together.) I really, really liked it. And the cover is incredibly beautiful as well as spot on."--Jennifer

Hambly, Barbara. Traveling with the Dead. $22.00.
Sequel to Those Who Hunt the Night ($5.99).
"Nice. Not as compelling as Those Who Hunt the Night, but well paced and written, with interesting character development. (This suffered some in my mind because of being read immediately after reading (more like complete immersion in) the C. S. Friedman -- Friedman is exploring metaphysical issues like sacrifice and the nature of redemption, and Hambly is telling a vampire story with cleverness and panache. Except for both having vampires as main characters, there is very little these books have in common.)"--Jennifer

Campbell's Unknown fantasy stories, but couldn't Bridge find someone more knowledgeable about the story and the period to put together the Gee-I-Don't-Know-Much-But-They're-Paying-Me-To-Write-This introduction?
