Almanac of forthcoming SF Books (October 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, Barnes & Noble, 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.
