Forthcoming SF&F Books (July 2011-2014)

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. These are also the books I would like to read and review. You might also enjoy Best SF&F Books of 2010 – 2010 Book IndexNew SFF to Read 2011.
