One of the benefits of the awards reading stint was that I inadvertently didn’t buy any new books for several months. I know! Imagine!
This of course must be rectified, and it so happens that the imminent World Fantasy Convention will be the epicentre for a conflagration of book launches. In addition to the two anthologies I’ve a hand in (I did mention Astrologica and Caledonia Dreamin’, didn’t I?), here’s some of the titles I’ll have my eye out for:
- The Moon Will Look Strange, Lynda E. Rucker (Karōshi Books)
- Autodrome, Kim Lakin-Smith (Snowbooks)
- Scruffians, Hal Duncan (Lethe Press)
- The End of the Road, ed. Jonathan Oliver (Solaris Books)
- Phantoms of Venice, David A. Sutton, Mike Chinn, Tim Lebbon & Conrad Williams (Shadow Publishing)
Getting Out Of There, M John Harrison (Nightjar Press) (hopefully, not sure if it’s going to be there or not)
- The Eidolon, Libby McGugan (Solaris Books) (though, I’ll probably wait til the Glasgow launch the week after).
Not bad for starters, eh? Love a good book launch, so I do.
