Almanac of forthcoming SF Books (November 2010-2012)

I usually make my pick of books for a month mid the month before and you will find more information about the books there. This is my teaser page of things to come. Remember that 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 like Amazon, Publisher and Author home pages that might contain errors or old information. So you can’t trust this calender like it was written on stone.

I love to get information on future releases for this Calendar. Comment here or email me ove at Everyone is welcome authors, agents, publishers to.
