Do you notice that this thread's BOTM are heavily leaning towards men?  All on this list are. 

Heavily leaning towards men? I don't understand, Lily... Male authors?

I'll see what I can do about featuring more female authors – great comment, Lily!

Paul, maybe you posted the july/august books but I havent noticed it.  My library is so poky about getting books, the sooner I reserve them to more the chance they may actually come in while there is still a discussion.  I just got the "In the Courts of the Sun"  today and ordered it right after these thread was posted. 

 

Anyway, please let me know whats next up. 

Dude, Where's my book!
