I'm sure I read more than 6 books in September, but maybe not. I was mostly preoccupied with getting ready for Capclave. Kritzler's book was a very interesting book about Jews, colonization, pirates and privateers. The title is a bit misleading in that the Jews mostly seemed to be financial backers of privateers or were privateers rather than pirates, although there was a fairly major Barbery Coast pirate who was a Moroccan Jew. It made a nice paired reading with Carrie Vaughn's Steel. Phoeniz Rising was a fun read and basically like a steampunk version of The Avengers. Will Supervillains be on the Final is the first volume of a charming manga by Naomi Novick and I'm definitely going to have to follow the series. Hereville was also a fun graphic novel, but very Jewish. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but all the Yiddish might have a bit of a distancing effect on gentiles. Vol. 4 of Eclipse was a great collection of short stories, but I'm not a fan of the cover art.
