Forthcoming Fiction from September to December 2007

Tuesday, August 21, 2007
I'm flat out stealing this idea from Andy Wolverton's recent post where he listed out a few books coming out in the near future. From the Locus listing of Forthcoming Books, here's what has my interest in the last four months of the year.


September:
The Elves of the Cintra, by Terry Brooks (Del Rey)
The Bonehunters, by Steven Erikson (Tor)
The Blade Itself, by Joe Abercrombie (Pyr)


October:
20th Century Ghosts, by Joe Hill (Harpercollins)
The Empire of Ivory, by Naomi Novik (Del Rey)
The Merchants War, by Charles Stross (Tor)


November:
Gentlemen of the Road, by Michael Chabon (Del Rey)


December:
Not a blessed thing.



Interestingly enough, Terry Goodkind's Confessor is not listed on Locus and near as I can tell still has a sale date of November 13. I would like to see how Goodkind closes The Sword of Truth out. Also missing is Mike Resnick's Starship: Mercenary from Pyr in December. Highly anticipated.

It's an honor to be stolen from! There are certainly many more books I'm interested in, but in most cases they're part of a series (Novik, Donaldson, Monette, etc.) that I either haven't started or caught up with.

Of course there is a blessed thing coming in December, but apparently not listed on Locus(?), it's Charlie Huston's "Half The Blood Of Brooklyn" part three of the Joe Pitt series. I was not too impressed with 'Armageddon's Children' (gave it 4/10) so I will not be picking up Elves of Cintra I guess.

Haven't read the first Charlie Huston novel, so I don't have anticipation for that one.

I enjoyed Armageddon's Children and still generally have enjoyment from Terry Brooks, so while it isn't a real excitement, it is something that I want to read each year.

Likewise I don't get giddy about The Merchants War because of the three novels Stross has published in this setting exactly one has been any good at all.
