New Titles – w/e 26th May 2012
Kim Stanley Robinson – 2312 big sf novel set 300 years in the future. Has a very similar cover to Blue Remembered Earth by Reynolds, which is also a look at the medium-near future… It isn’t a sequel to the Mars books, although they do share some events and names in common.
in large format:
Michael J. Ward – The Legion of Shadow the 1st Destiny Quest adventure! Colour insert. It’s a very advanced version of the old Fighting Fantasy adventure book idea but now involving dice throws and so on, not just picking a page to turn to!
in ‘B’ format:
Jack Campbell – Invincible the 2nd of his Beyond the Frontier series, continuing the exploits of The Lost Fleet
Philip Jose Farmer – The Other Log of Phileas Fogg reprint of his 1973 novel about the truth behind Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days. One of what are now known as Farmer’s Wold Newton novels, which postulate that all sorts of fictional characters like Tarzan, Doc Savage, etc. were real and, iirc, related to each other!
David Wingrove – Son of Heaven the new 1st volume in his epic Chung Kuo series about the rise of a new Chinese hegemony. The series first appeared in the late 1980s and 90s but has had the beginning completely re-written.
Paul Melko – The Walls of the Universe John’s doppelganger appears on the farm one day and offers him a chance to visit a parallel world; I really enjoyed the hardback when it came out 3 years ago. This should never have taken so long to come out!
Jack Campbell – Dreadnaught the 1st of his Beyond the Frontier series, continuing the exploits of The Lost Fleet
David J. Golemon – Legacy the 6th Event Group thriller! An ancient human corpse is found on the moon…
