The Questionable Behavior of Dahlia Moss
By Max Wirestone
Veronica Mars meets the World of Warcraft in this mystery romp with a hilarious heroine.Working for a games development company is my dream job. So, when a slightly sketchy lawyer offered me the opportunity, I had to take it! Who cares that the company has some quirks? No job is perfect. Some questionable, but probably totally normal issues:* A mysterious whistle-blower is posting the industry's dirty laundry on Reddit.* An unidentified corpse is in the staff room, apparently poisoned by meth-laden kaffir.* The game under development is for filthy casuals, and unwisely involves matching talking peppermints.* My job, technically speaking, is "Industry Spy."It's all just a typical day at the office. Right?Dahlia Moss's latest adventure is pure, geeky fun!
By Iain Banks
Kit doesn't know who his mother is. What he does know, however, is that his father, Guy, is dying of cancer. Feeling his death is imminent, Guy gathers around him his oldest friends - or at least the friends with the most to lose by his death. Paul - the rising star in the Labour party who dreads the day a tape they all made at university might come to light; Alison and Robbie, corporate bunnies whose relationship is daily more fractious; Pris and Haze, once an item, now estranged, and finally Hol - friend, mentor, former lover and the only one who seemed to care. But what will happen to Kit when Guy is gone? And why isn't Kit's mother in the picture? As the friends reunite for Guy's last days, old jealousies, affairs and lies come to light as Kit watches on.
