Book News from around the Web

Corsair by Clive Cussler and Jack DuBrul is due to be released in March of 2009. While I was a fan of DuBrul's early work, he seems to have lost some talent by teaming up with Cussler.

A Jurrasic Park redux of sorts, How To Build a Dinosaur by Jack Horner and James Gorman, is due to be released in March of 2009. And no, this is NOT a fiction title.

Lamentation by Ken Scholes is stirring some buzz. I'll hold off until I can score a cheap or free copy before pronouncing judgement on its merits. Which means waiting until at least February 2009 when it's published. Unless someone has a spare copy? -hint-hint-

My wife is going to freak when she finds out that her 1980s-era idol turned 40. Last year! The good news is, Ringwald signed a new book deal.

Audio books are going DRM-free. Thank goodness!

Is Amazon releasing their new Kindle next week? Guess we'll need to wait to find out. But we do know they will be dropping certain e-book formats.

Did you know Superman was arrested for DWI? That's right, none other than Christopher Reeves was pulled over for driving while intoxicated with kryptonite.

Author Patrick Rothfuss comes up with an idea to reduce global warming all on his own. Learn how you can turn your "squirrel sauna" into a home-heating element.
