Forthcoming SF&F Books 2012-2014

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. You might also enjoy Best SF&F Books of 2010  – 2011 Booki IndexNew SFF to Read 2011.
