Trudi Canavan – Magician’s Apprentice her new novel, set hundreds of years before the events of the Black Magician Trilogy…
John Birmingham – Without Warning near-future alternate history, where the West is crumbling…
M. F. W. Curran – The Hoard of Mhorrer sequel to The Secret War, which came out in ‘B’ format paperback a few weeks ago; I should have had this around then as well but my supplier somehow deleted it from my order… I enjoyed the first one when it was in hardback a couple of years ago.

Jeremy Robinson – Kronos an unknown leviathan of the deep which killed his wife is targeted by a multi-millionaire. Moby Dick meets James Bond (it says!)
Eric Flint (creator & editor) – Ring of Fire II anthology of stories set in the Ring of Fire/1632 background…
Mark Geston – The Book of Wars omnibus edition of Lords of the Starship, Out of the Mouth of the Dragon & The Siege of Wonder. Excellent stuff; the first 2 are a pair featuring efforts to build a gigantic starship. Two of my favourite books from the early 70s… the 3rd title is linked to them thematically at best, though. But it’s great to see this under-appreciated author back in print. 🙂 Also interesting introductions from both Geston and David Drake…
