Forthcoming SF&F Books (April 2011-2013)

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 that can contain errors or old information. So you can’t trust this calendar like it was written on stone.
