Alert: The Eos Reader 2010

Title: The Eos Reader 2010
Authors: many!
Page Count: 898 .pdf format
Publisher: Eos
Genre: speculative fiction of all flavors
Copy for review obtained via NetGalley.com in anticipation of an honest review:

50 words or less:  Like an epic box of chocolates, this title includes multi-chapter excerpts from a wide variety of 2010 speculative fiction titles.  Let the wishlisting begin!

This is less of a traditional review than a heads up for all interested parties: this book is available free at netgalley.com until 12/31! It includes samples from books by the following authors:
Jocelynn Drake, Vicki Pettersson, Richard Kadrey, Michael Moorcook, Glen Coo, Lynsay Sands, Jeaniene Frost, Kerrelyn Sparks, Pamela Palmer, Juliana Stone, Joss Ware, Marjorie M. Liu, C.L. Wilson, Sheri S. Tepper, Dakota Banks, Marcus Pelegrimas, Meg Cabot, Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan, Neil Gaiman, Al Sarrantonio
That's a pretty substantial list, but wait! There's more!  Many of the books excerpted in this volume are available on NetGalley in their entirety, so if you like what you read in the excerpt you can request a copy of the full book at the same time! Pretty good idea, right? Right!

If you don't already have a NetGalley account, what are you waiting for? It's a great opportunity to get review copies of books and also to broaden your horizons and see what's out there from other publishers.  This book is only available until 12/31 so I recommend acting on it while you can.  Enjoy!
