SFF Titles for April, from Penguin Books SA

03 Apr

Hey everyone, I’m back with a post to let you know what you can expect to see on the shelves in South Africa this month from Penguin Books SA. šŸ™‚ Without further a-do, let’s get into it!

For those looking to investigate the realms of the Paranormal, there’s a Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Paranormal, by Nathan Brown.

Next up is the eagerly awaited sequel to Markus Heitz’s The Dwarves – The War of the Dwarves:

Next up is a book I’m very much looking forward to – The Midnight Mayor. It’s the second book from Kate Griffin featuring the very strange Matthew Swift, who made his debut in the incredible A Madness of Angels (reviewed here):

Next up we’ve got Oath of Fealty from Elizabeth Moon; I’ve yet to read any of her work, but this lady has garnered a huge fanbase with whatever she writes, be it SF or Fantasy, so this should be awesome:

Next up, we’ve got The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke, the first novel in her new series; I was lucky enough to have won a signed copy of the book in a Twitter competition, šŸ™‚ so I’m very chuffed. šŸ™‚ I’ll be reading her first series before I get into this:

Then we’ve got This is Not a Game by Walter John Williams; I’ve only read the Star Wars New Jedi Order novel he wrote, Destiny’s Way, and I’ll definitely recommend him – he does kickass action scenes and his characters leap of the page!

Penguin has also rejacketed Trudi Canavan’s The Black Magician trilogy – not a major change, but you’ll notice them. šŸ™‚ Look out for the new jackets, hitting the shelves this month.

Then we’ve got The Darkness Within by Sherrilyn Kenyon:

This rejacketed version of Keri Arthur’s Full Moon Rising (couldn’t find a big enough pic to post here);

and Mark Millar’s Lonely Werewolf Girl:

Next up, we’ve got Vampires by Charlotte Montague (seems like the market definitely hasn’t had enough of vampires, yet)

Stephen Jones latest Massive Book of Horror, a collection of short stories written by some of the best scare-you-shitless writers out there:

Last, but not least, the third novel in Tad Williams’ Shadow Trilogy, Shadowrise, will also be on the shelves this month; click here for an exclusive read:

There we go, quite a bit to look out for that’s available right now. šŸ™‚

I’ll be back on Monday with a review of Mark Charan Newton’s second Legends of the Red Sun novel, City of Ruin. šŸ™‚

Until then,
