4 Comments on Which of These 82 SF/F/H Books Coming Out in December 2011 Do You Most Want?

  1. The list of books I’m not interested in would be much shorter than that of those I want.

  2. Spaz has a point!


    If i had to pick three books to read from this list:



    Empire State

    Supervolcano (Hey, its Turtledove0


  3. What a list! Still, I’m most looking forward to Natania Barron’s PILGRIM OF THE SKY (Candlemark & Gleam). Which isn’t on it. 🙂

  4. What a list! Still, it’s missing my most-anticipated book of December, Natania Barron’s Pilgrim of the Sky, coming from Candlemark & Gleam.
