The most exciting news is the release of #4 (Title is still "working title") in George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire Series is finally ready to hit the presses. Expect release in September and a book signing trip through at least Denver during the first week of release. If there is a signing in Colorado Springs I will ferret it out and announce it. Expect a 2.5 lb book and the usual bloodthirsty action in this series.
Larry Niven has just released his collaboration with Brenda Cooper Building Harlequin's Moon. Finally Larry Niven returns to space opera, awesome cover art and the second book I will review for this site. This book is currently available on Amazon for less than $18.
Jack McDevitt has announced the release of his newest book Seeker which is another Alex Benedict novel. If you have not read the other two novels this character is in, I highly recommend The Engines of God as one of the best novels of its year. Jack always delivers and this one is going to be very welcome when it hits the book shelves in September.
Dan Simmons, one of our more favorite Colorado Authors is releasing Olympos (sequel to his best seller Ilium) and the conclusion to this series. This is Dan's first effort back in Sci Fi since the Hyperion series and he is a most welcome addition to the ranks contributors to this genre again. He always does autograph sessions in the Tattered Cover Bookstore up in Denver on the first week of publication of his novels. I will be organizing a trip to this book signing during November when it is released.
Frederik Pohl, is releasing a novel (remarkable for an 85 year old man that looks like he does) that is another in the venerable Heechee saga and perhaps his last novel ever. The Boy Who Would Live Forever : A Novel of Gateway Ok.. so I have low expectations for this as he sorta ran out of this series decades ago, but I wonder what is on his mind these days regarding this universe.
Next: Book Review. ----- The Wilding by C.S. Friedman. Coming soon
Thanks Steve for the novel news!
