7 Comments on 132 SF/F/H Books Coming Out in November 2011 – Which Ones Do You Want?

  1. That’s quite a lineup

  2. Although Crichton is not usually classified as SF/F, as they tend to be more action/adventure novels, I do want to read Micro. I’ve always liked his books, and I think Preston will do him justice and it sounds like it should be a fun read!

  3. Can I live with you, John?


  4. wow!  i never noticed this type list before.  this was a great way to see all upcoming books…if i’ve missed it before shame on me….hope we get a monthly list like this!

  5. But you can count the sf books on one hand…


  6. So many books… so little time. Of course there are a few more, maybe the main one “missing” in terms of new sf/f books being R/evolution by Tenea Johnson, coming Nov. 11 from counterpoise:


    New audiobooks for Wild Cards I by George R. R. MartinDarkness Falling by Peter Crowther  (from Angry Robot on Brilliance Audio), All Tomorrow’s Parties by William Gibson and The Fountains of Paradise by Arthur C. Clarke  from Brilliance Audio

    Outside of sf/f but ones I will be taking a peek at (with that extra time…):

  7. If there were short reviews/descriptions appended to this list, I might consider reading more than 6 or 7 of these books.  It’s hard to choose when nothing is known except author and title, except for some authors who I reject automatically, because I know they write garbage.  I average 2+ books/day, mostly SF and Fantasy.
