Stocking up on ebooks

I’m on the road for nine days, starting tomorrow, and so swung by and grabbed some ebooks for the trip:

The novel (marketed as “mainstream,” but clearly SF from the description) The Philosopher’s Apprentice by James Morrow (whose birthday it is today — happy birthday, Jim!)

And these nonfiction books:

Nim Chimpsky: The Chimp Who Would Be Human by Elizabeth Hess

Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel by Michio Kaku

The Logic of Life: The Rational Economics of an Irrational World by Tim Harford

Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them by Francine Prose

(How can you not love a book about books by someone whose name is “Prose”?)

All but the last of the above are new releases this week or last week at

Also grabbed this week’s free Nebula nominees: stories by Matthew Hughes and Ted Chiang.
