Sandi (sandikal) | 338 comments I'm saving an Audible credit to get The Desert Spear by Peter V. Brett. I loved The Warded Man.


message 3: by Ken (new)

Ken (ogi8745) | 1348 comments I am waiting for Sawyer's book Watch and Guy Kay's book Under Heaven


message 4: by Leighann (new)

Leighann (zhelenstilo) I just put both Changeless and WWW:Watch on hold at the local library, since I loved the first books in both those series.


message 5: by Marty (new)

Marty (martyjm) | 310 comments I will read the Jim Butcher Changes, probably the John Barnes Directive 51, and I've ordered the Jack Campbell The Lost Fleet Victorious.


message 6: by Kerry (new)

Kerry (rocalisa) | 487 comments For me, it'll be Lee and Miller's Saltation.


message 7: by Ron (new)

Ron (ronbacardi) | 302 comments Another new Michael Flynn book already? This is good news.

Kathi | 3233 comments Mod
Jim Butcher's Dresden Files book is on my list.
Does anyone know anything about Trudi Canavan? I've eyed some of her books lately at the used book store but didn't buy.


colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) I'm really looking forward to Changeless by Gail Carriger, because I enjoyed Soulless alot.

I might also pick up Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey at some point, because it's on my wishlist and looks interesting.


message 10: by Phoenixfalls (new)

Phoenixfalls | 187 comments Huh. . . not a thing for me this month. Ah well, my wallet will appreciate the break before May, when I think a couple of my authors have new hardcovers coming out. . .

But I will likely pick up the John Barnes for my dad.


message 11: by Jon (new)

Jon (jonmoss) | 626 comments Stormed Fortress and Traitor's Knot by Janny Wurts are both on order from my local B&N store. I hope to have them in hand at the end of next week.


message 12: by Jim (new)

Jim Shannon (envaneo) | 37 comments I'm waiting until I have all 3 of Sawyer's books in the trilogy and I can read them all in one go.


message 13: by Janny (new)

Janny (jannywurts) | 1003 comments Lee and Miller's Saltation, Karin Lowachee has done some well presented works in the past, so I'll definitely give The Gaslight Dogs a thorough look.

Did this list somehow miss Kay's Under Heaven? I thought that was an April title too?

Also, I thought C.J. Cherryh had another coming up in her Foreigner series... I had a mental 'check this in April' tag - could be wrong about the release date.

My advance copy says May 2010, but on Amazon it's listed for April 27... so I'm not sure. I definitely recommend it - thought it was his best novel since The Lions of Al-Rassan.

Ken (ogi8745) | 1348 comments In Canada its defiantly April. According to the Guy Kay e-mail, Canada release is Begining of April, USA is last week of April.
Sometimes I am really pleased to be a Canadian

Yes I have just read four of her books, her latest, Magicians Apprentice just beat out The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke (which I think is a fantastic book) for the Aurealis awards in Oz. I enjoyed her books but there are 3 I cannot get hold of at the moment.


message 17: by Laurel (new)

Laurel Ken, Under Heaver is out in stores now. It was supposed to be released on Tuesday, but has already popped up on shelves around the country. I have a copy in my hot little hands!


message 18: by Ken (new)

Ken (ogi8745) | 1348 comments I have mine on order at my fav store. They are going to get it signed for me also. Man I love that place


message 19: by Laurel (new)

Laurel Are you going to a reading? Happily, his visit to Winnipeg is coming up soon!


message 20: by Bill (new)

Bill (reedye) | 56 comments Jo, What three can't you get?


message 21: by Jo (new)

Jo Wake | 35 comments Magician's Guild, Novice and High Lord. For some reason my library doesn't have them.


message 22: by Bill (new)

Bill (reedye) | 56 comments Ah, I was going to send you to bookdepository.com to buy.


message 23: by Jo (new)

Jo Wake | 35 comments I don't buy many books these days, I used to have a collection of thousands but last time I moved, I parted with a mass of them, sadly. However, I still have a largish library and will have to part with them too if I end up moving into a smaller apartment.
