I just thought I'd drop by and tell you what's coming up. I reckon it's a good way to prevent many people from asking me the same questions all the time!;-)
Well, I should be done with Steven Erikson's Reaper's Gale (Canada, USA, Europe) by next week, and so far it's excellent! I daresay you can pre-order this one! My current "commute" novel is Carrie Vaughn's third Kitty installment, Kitty Take a Holiday (Canada, USA, Europe). Like its predecessors, it is quite good.
My next "home" book will be Tad Williams' Shadowplay (Canada, USA, Europe). It should have been before Reaper's Gale in the rotation, but my review copy got lost in the mail. So it's coming up next.
Soon-to-be read novels include Joel Shepherd's Breakaway (Canada, USA, Europe), Ian McDonald's Brasyl (Canada, USA, Europe), Katherine Kurtz's Childe Morgan (Canada, USA, Europe), and Sergei Lukyanenko's Night Watch (Canada, USA, Europe). Scott Lynch's Red Seas Under Red Skies (Canada, USA, Europe) will trump any one of these books, provided I get a thrice-damned ARC soon!
You guys have been getting some pretty good ones since the beginning of 2007.
Five are currently in the works, with Katherine Kurtz, Greg Keyes, Peter F. Hamilton, Joe Abercrombie and Patrick Rothfuss.
Coming in April/May are interviews with Steven Erikson, Ian Cameron Esslemont, R. Scott Bakker, Jacqueline Carey and Scott Lynch.
There's always more, so stay tuned!;-)
Ah, your favorite section, right!?!
As you know by now, these things change from day to day, so more could be on the way (I have a few things cooking up as we speak!).
If you scroll down, you should see that there are a few ongoing contests: Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind (Canada, USA, Europe), Steven Erikson's The Lees of Laughter's End, L. E. Modesitt, jr.'s The Elysium Commission (Canada, USA, Europe), Joel Shepherd's Breakaway and Kay Kenyon's Bright of the Sky (Canada, USA, Europe). There's still time to register, that goes without saying!
Coming this weekend will be a giveaway for Steven Erikson's Reaper's Gale. In addition, in keeping with my promise to try to convert as many fantasy fans to the Malazan series as humanly possible, Transworld have accepted to supply a full set of paperbacks to introduce a new reader to this fantastic series. The publisher might supply more than one set, so I'm waiting to hear from them before making the announcement.
I've already mentioned this and it will happen, have no fear: There's going to be a contest for a signed copy of Tad Williams' Rite (Canada, USA, Europe).
There will be a James Barclay contest as well, but I'm waiting to hear from him and Gollancz to finalize the details.
Another Malazan offering will be Ian Cameron Esslemont's Night of Knives (Europe.) I will also have copies of Ian McDonald's Brasyl, probably both the US and UK editions.
A little later, you'll have the chance to win Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Justice (Canada, USA), as well as the much anticipated Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch, again probably both the US and UK editions).
There will be more, of course, but these book giveaways have been confirmed. Where else can you win more novels!?!
That's about it for now, people. As always, your suggestions and comments are welcome.
