5 Comments on 147 Forthcoming SF/F/H Books for June 2011

  1. Anyone else notice how many of these look the same.  And by “same” I mean “not particularly appealing”?

  2. Hi John,


    Absolutely love this feature. Please continue. As for appealing covers, I found enough that I liked. And the covers of the adaptations by Brian Stableford, Wow! Whi is the illustrator? Or is that illustrators. I do not know who Brian hired but I would like to know.

  3. This is a great feature!

    Two requests, though:

    1. Can you make it sortable by author?
    2. If you can’t do that, when a title begins with “The”, can you sort by the second word?


  4. Will Hilary Duff be on the next podcast?


  5. @SJL: Not easily, and these posts already take a fair chunk of time.

    @Tam: 🙂
