Two Others

In amongst a bunch of programming books, I also found time this summer to read a few for fun, like the latest in the Temeraire series. The two I enjoyed most were Felix Gilman's debut novel Thunderer, and Michael Chabon's Gentlemen of the Road. The former is a match for K. J. Bishop's The Etched City (think China Mieville, but less self-consciously anxious to impress); the latter, like The Yiddish Policemen's Union, is proof that Chabon has finally learned that too much is not a good thing. I wouldn't call either book deep, but they're both nice and chewy.
