Here’s a peek at the genre authors debuting this month:
- Passion Play by Beth Bernobich (Tor)
- The Spirit Thief by Rachel Aaron (Orbit)
- King Maker by Maurice Broaddus (Angry Robot)
- Servant of the Underworld by Aliette de Bodard (Angry Robot)
- The Greyfriar by Clay & Susan Griffith (Pyr)
- Grave Witch by Kalayna Price (Roc)
- Suddenly Something Happened by Jimmy Beaulie (Bdang)
You’re probably wondering why debut is in quotations. These are authors whose debut novels come out in Canada in October 2010 as per the Chapters/Indigo website. I have not included self published or epub titles. And because publishing schedules are different in each country, this list isn’t accurate for, say, the US, where Kalayna Price has 3 books out, and Clay Griffith’s book is out in November. So why do a debut list that’s only accurate for one country? Because debut or not, it’s a great way to ‘meet’ new authors.
Please note: Jimmy Beaulieu’s first English novel (translated from the French), Suddenly Something Happened, comes out in October. Amazon doesn’t have a photo for it yet, so it’s not displayed above.
