PREVIEWS ASKEWLet's try something different this month.
Instead of the usual monthly round-up of books that look interesting, I'm using this month's PIPELINE PREVIEWS as a jumping-off point for all sorts of tangential points, questions, and reviews.
As always, I encourage you to pick up a copy of PREVIEWS for yourself. Take a flip through it and pre-order what you see in the catalog that strikes your fancy. Although this is a relatively slow month -- between convention season and holiday shopping -- there's still plenty of good reading material in there.
Somewhere around 500 columns are archived here at CBR and you can get to them from the Pipeline Archive page. They're sorted chronologically. The first 100 columns or so are still available at the Original Pipeline page.
