And now that I came up with my list I thought of some stuff that wasn’t on the locus list but I have reason to believe will be published in 2009
The Other Lands, by David Anthony Durham
Scenting the Dark and Other Stories, by Mary Robinette Kowal (Mary's first book - ooh!)
The Boneshaker, by Cherie Priest: I’m pretty sure I’d follow Cherie anywhere, and given that I think this is set in the same world as her wonderful short story “Tanglefoot”, I’m in.
This also brings my list up to the 19 books I initially wanted
Actually, it might be 20 because I think Elizabeth Bear has the sequel to All the Windwracked Stars slated for a fall release. I hope. And if I’m really good, maybe Emma Bull’s Claim (sequel to Territory). And Eclipse Three. And…
Yeah, this’ll be a good year.
