8 Comments on A Book Cover Gallery of 152 Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Books Coming Out in June 2012

  1. A good month ahead. Really looking forward to Blue Remembered Earth (Reynolds), Redshirts (Scalzi), Caliban’s War (Corey), Kop Killer (Hammond).

    I’ve already picked up a copy of the Mammoth Book of Steampunk and have a review copy of the Sword and Sorcery anthology.

    June 5th will be a particularly fun day, the release of Redshirts AND John Carter on dvd/blu ray!

  2. Blue Remembered Earth is June 5th too.

  3. Wow, I guess it’s summer SF-F time! Several things there I’d like to read. I already have Caliban’s War on pre-order.

    Looks like a particularly good month. Lists like this remind me that there’s never enough time for reading… And for those who follow cover art trends, what’s with all the tattooed arms and headless torsos? Not as much tight black leather as some months… 🙂

  5. Glen Barry // June 22, 2012 at 3:38 am //

    A book that psychonalyzes Batman (#9)? Ooooh, MUST HAVE!
