Forthcoming SF&F Books

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.

I recently talked to a number of my favorite authors at Loncon3, picking their brains for what’s coming next. I did my best to take down notes but might have gotten some of the titles down wrong, just so you know.
