I have noticed that more and more of my favorite series are getting bogged down in details and that the story progression takes the backseat to extensive details in in-dept description of routine activities, politics, technologies, side plots, scenery or such.

It is understandable that a literary world gets more vivid in the mind of the author as a series progress making it harder to avoid going into the details.

I love ambiance and world building as much as the next person but when the story progression slows down so that a story line fit for a book stretch over two or more books it makes me feel cheated.

Pacing in a series is as important as the pacing in a book. I wish authors spent more on this. A long series is an investment by the reader where you have expectations of consistency.

I don’t doubt some of this is for milking sales on a successful series, but what happens when readers get fed up?

Examples of this could be books after books fighting battles to get to the temple(Safehold)., filler adventures on different planets while the cliffhanger remains unresolved for a couple of books(Longknife), diving into BuPers (HR of the military) details while leaving off the great battle everyone is moving towards (Wandering Engineer).

Do you have similar experiences?

These are the upcoming books I would like to read and review

It is also my teaser page of things to come. The further away a release is the less certain is the information, covers can change from week to week and delays are common. This is also a collection of data from public sources that can contain errors or old information. So you can’t trust this calendar like it is written in stone.

Click on the covers for a larger image. Titles in Italic have covers. Recent changes are bold.
