The top row, all of which I picked up at the recent Infosecon:

* Jason Andress and Ryan Linn, Coding for Penetration Testers: Building Better Tools - Ryan is a friend of mine and I'm happy to see his experience published. Strongly recommended.

* Deviant Ollam, Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide - I've had the fortune to learn from Deviant's expertise at infosec conferences and again, strongly recommended.

Will Allsop, Unauthorized Access: Physical Penetration Testing for IT Security Teams - Haven't gotten into this one yet, but the reviews weren't bad. Also clearly of interest to urban exploration types.

(Side note about the first two: I know that image on the cover is supposed to be four strips and a central square on a rounded dome or ball, but it looks to me like a straight razor with some background reflections. My problem.)

Bottom row:
* R. Scott Bakker, Neuropath - Horror novel from a couple of years ago, used online. Thought it had a dust jacket. Shrug.

* Chuck Palahniuk, Damned - Thirteen-year old girl writes her memoirs from Hell. Palahniuk has given the character a speech habit I find so annoying that I'll never do that particular thing again, so thanks for the mirror of manners. See? Fringe benefits.

* John Ajvide Lindqvist, Harbor - The author of Let The Right One In which was possibly my favorite film of 2008 (and a much different feel to the novel than the film), and Handling the Undead (his zombie novel).

* Kameron Hurley, Infidel - Sequel to the novel God's War which was referred to as "bugpunk" in reference to the primary technology in play.
