9 Comments on 187 Reasons To Read Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror in March 2014 (Your One-Stop Monthly SF/F/H Cover Gallery)

  1. “Pssst! Wanna know which science fiction, fantasy and horror books that are coming out in the next few weeks?”

    You sound like the Hodge Twins on Youtube.

  2. Nightcrawlers and The Barrow were both great reads, although I didn’t particularly care for The Book of the Crowman.

    I’ve been waiting anxiously for Words of Radiance and Dawn’s Early Light.

  3. Saga 3 comes out in March too, for the graphically inclined. Probably the best comic next to Locke & Key, which just finished in hardcover this month.

  4. Tircuit // March 1, 2014 at 9:05 pm //

    Can’t wait for Katja’s return! And Truth and Fear.

    Thanks for the head’s up.

  5. Quit making me spend money!!!

  6. I’ve read or sampled all the currently available Amazon previews on this list, and my picks for this month are …

    Mark Smylie, The Barrow. (I will read anything Artesia-related.)
    Brad Aiken, Small Doses of the Future: A Collection of Medical Science Fiction Stories.
    Ann VanderMeer and Jeff VanderMeer, The Time Traveler’s Almanac.
    Menna van Praag, The House at the End of Hope Street.
    Andrzej Sapkowski, Baptism of Fire.
    Chris Wooding, The Iron Jackal.
    Leslye Walton, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender.

  7. Wonderful! I can see one book that I will be purchasing, the art of Ian Miller.

  8. I have a review copy of Black Moon that I accepted because it sounds so interesting. Almost makes me wish I had a sleepless night in which to enjoy it.

    Received a copy of Blood and Iron from Pyr the other day. Jason Chan’s cover is really nice, looks much better on the book than it does online.

    I like the retro Doctor Who covers, especially the one for Prisoner of the Daleks.

    Can’t wait to read Lindsay Smith’s short on, “Doppel”. Jeffrey Alan Love’s cover is amazing.

    I’ll be picking up Honor Among Thieves on Tuesday, as well as Words of Radiance and The Tropic of Serpents.

    I haven’t read any of Schroeder’s novels and Lockstep sounds like one I’d like to check out, as does Sophia McDougall’s Mars Evacuees. Both feature younger protagonists on adventures that are described in such a way that I think I’ll enjoy them.

    I already have pre-ordered my copy of Adam Christopher’s The Burning Dark. Can’t wait to see what he does with this kind of science fiction.

    Great to see The End is Nigh is out. I bought a copy and started reading it yesterday.

    Memory of Sky looks great.

    I received a review copy of The Mapmaker’s War, unsolicited, and I will definitely be reading it.

    The Pilgrims, with its red door, looks and sounds like one I’ll pick up.

    The Vandermeer’s Time Traveler’s Almanac looks like a must-buy for those who like the time travel trope (ME!)

    This is going to be an expensive month in books!

  9. David Greybeard // March 3, 2014 at 9:16 am //

    I buy and read a bunch of books but this month seems to be especially bountiful.

    Black Moon by Calhoun
    Blood and Iron by Sprunk
    Hyde by Levine
    Minding the Stars: The Early Jack Vance Volume 4
    Night of the Hunter: Companions Codex, I by Salvatore
    No Hero by Wood
    Sunstone by Robertson
    Talus and the Frozen King by Edwards
    The Barrow by Mark Smylie
    The Boy with the Porcelain Blade by Patrick
    Burning Dark by Christopher
    The Dark Eidolon and Other Fantasies by Smith
    The Lascar’s Dagger: The Forsaken Lands by Larke
    The Time Traveler’s Almanac by the Vandermeers
    Truth and Fear by Higgins

    And a few maybes:
    I’ve got my eye on two from Centipede, the Hodgson and Blackwood volumes.

    Honor Among Thieves: Star Wars by Corey
    Last God Standing by Boatman
    The Tropic of Serpents by Brennan

    Karl Schroeder is a terrific writer but I’m going to hold off on that one, paperback I think.

    I’m not sure why The King’s Hounds series by Jensen is listed. Isn’t that historical fiction? I love historical fiction and I’m interested in this series.

    I love the cover artwork for The Pilgrims by Elliott but have read some disparaging reviews.

    Not listed here that I’m picking up are:
    The Folklore of Discworld by Pratchett etc.
    The Wicked by Douglas Nicholas (loved his first novel)
    Sword of the North by Luke Scull
    Traitor’s Blade by de Castell
    Banquet for the Damned by Adam Nevill (reprint but missed it first time around)
    Shattered Crown by Richard Ford

    And a stack of DC and Marvel collected editions.
