Penguin Books SA: July’s SFF Titles

06 Jul

Hey Guys and Girls, as promised! 🙂

I’ve got a list for you – some of the highlights from Penguin Books SA’s SFF novels that’ll be hitting the shelves this month (in fact, many of them arrived at the store I work at today). Click the author-names to visit their websites and the title-links for more info on the books.

First up, the eagerly awaited paperback edition of Karen Miller‘s The Prodigal Mage; I’ll be finishing Karen’s Godspeaker series before I get to these (chalk that up to having Empress before I had The Innocent Mage) but I’m looking forward to these!

The first two books, The Innocent Mage and The Awakened Mage, have also been re-released as a slightly bigger paperback, now updated to include the rest of Karen’s books (except the Star Wars novels, of course – these aren’t published by Orbit).

Another title I’m looking forward to is Lord of the Changing Winds by Rachel Neumeier:

One of the titles I’ve got an incredibly good feeling about (not only in terms of content but also in terms of sales) is Feed by Mira Grant (Seanan McGuire):

Another author that I really need to get into is KJ Parker – her new novel, The Folding Knife, is available this month:

Next up, an author who’s really beginning to get herself quite a following here in SA (if the customers I’ve seen are any indication); Majorie M Liu‘s Darkness Calls:

Then we’ve got Pandaemonium from Christopher Brookmyer:

Next up, some horror for those who like themselves terrified (as I do, so I’m hoping to look into this and the author’s previous novels): The Unseen by Alexandra Sokoloff:

Then we’ve got Kevin J Anderson‘s second Terra Incognita novel, The Map of All Things; absolutely beautiful trade paperback, wouldn’t mind having this and Book 1, The Edge of the World, on my shelf!

Next up, something I’d love to sink into: The Massive Book of Apocalyptic SF, edited by Mike Ashley; wish I could show you the awesome cover but I could only find a 9kb image, not nearly big enough! Here’s the not-as-cool pic that Fantastic Fiction have got:

Also, the paperback edition of Sarah MossCold Earth – I’ve got a copy, just need to get to it; love the idea behind this book, paint me intrigued!

And here’s a very interesting book – I read the blurb on the back today and wanted to start reading right away – need to finish a couple of books before I get to it, though! Michael Ridpath‘s Where Shadow’s Lie; just follow the link to read the blurb and I’m sure you’ll agree! (Could only find a tiny jpeg for the cover)

For those of you looking for new paranormal romance-novels to get into, here’s what you can look forward to:

Lover Eternal by JR Ward:

Dance with the Devil & Night Embrace, both by Sherrilyn Kenyon:

Also arriving will be Keri Arthur‘s Moon Sworn:

and finally, MaryJanice Davidson‘s Undead and Unwelcome:

For the Young Adults out there, here’s what you have to look forward to:

The Enemy, by Charlie Higson:
(Couldn’t upload the title for some reason – maybe The Enemy is IT-smart, now!)

A Wizard of Earthsea by legendary Ursula K Le Guin (a new jacket, and it’s terrible (I’m sorry to say), looks like a very cheap job, held it in my hands this afternoon):

and finally, Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s Infinity:

There we go, people, plenty of good reading material to look forward to this month! 🙂 Remember to head over to your closest Exclusive Books to get your copies, or to any good bookshop in your area. 🙂
