4 Comments on Here are 306 Reasons to Read Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Books in October (Our Monthly SF/F/H New Release Cover Gallery)

  1. David Greybeard // October 1, 2014 at 10:20 am //

    Have you folks at SF Signal ever considered posting a similar set of monthly releases for graphic novels/collected editions?

    As a daily reader that is something I’d love to see here.

  2. So much eye candy. I may have to get ‘Day of the Triffids,’ as it’s one of those classics I’ve never read. LOTS of stuff I’m gonna have to put on my Christmas wish list.

    • Fwiw, I really enjoyed Day of the Triffids. I may need to re-read it since I can’t remember all the details of that “cozy catastrophe”. I do remember liking it for its mood, though.
