11 Comments on 220 Reasons To Read Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror in November 2013 (Our HUGE Monthly SF/F/H Cover Gallery)

  1. I look forward to this eye candy every month. Mercifully (this close to Christmas shopping season) there isn’t much I cannot live without. Although I am two novels behind, I will be grabbing a copy of Fiddlehead as soon as I see it on bookstore shelves.

  2. Burning Paradise I just didn’t care for. The characters were bland and simplistic, the writing wasn’t nearly as smart or as polished as I’ve found his previous work to be, and the plotting was straightforward to the point of being predictable.

    I’ve just started in on Beyond the Rift, and I have the 2 Mister October collections cued up next.

    Looking to get my hands on the Bleeding Shadows collection, and I would kill for that 30th Anniversary Edition of Pet Sematary.

  3. A single comic but:

  4. There are a ton of gorgeous covers for November. I’m excited there is a new Sharon Shinn novel! Her Samaria series is one of my favorite series ever.

    Fortune’s Pawn is also something that sounds intriguing.

    Oh and I don’t avoid Keeping With the Kardashians, I embrace it. Because it reminds me there are worse things in the world than working on excel for 12 hours straight :).

  5. Lots of great eye candy this time around, though I’ll give the blue ribbon to Sally Gardner’s Tinder. That one jumped out at me.

  6. I’ve had the Sharon Shinn novel pre-ordered since March. See a number of other intriguing titles in here as well.

  7. ooh, so many pretties! Classic Doctor Who, the new Gillian Philip, the new Cherie Priest, and Squee! a new Princess and Mr. Whiffle book!

    if anyone is interested in know, the Kage Baker collection is stellar, but if you’ve loyally chased down her short fiction you’ve no doubt already read nearly everything in it.

  8. There are a lot of Hobbit-related books getting released this month. Shouldn’t surprise me, really, what with the countdown to the second movie close at hand.

    Fortunately, though, this seems to be a month in which there isn’t too much that catches my eye. Still enough to keep me busy, though, which is great, but not as many as I’ve seen in previous months.

  9. Once again, fantastic job putting this together.

    I don’t know how authors do it — there’s too many good books to read!

  10. Missing…

    If you’re going to include “young adult” stuff, that’s one plenty of people would want to know is coming out.
