"Pretty much nothing in that list that I want", he said gloomily. Not that I need more books really. Lord knows that I really, really don't.
I guess for the next few months, the main books I am interested in are Red Country, Red Knight, Malice, The Twelve, Krampus Yule Lord, Rise of Ransom City, The Daylight War, Blood of Dragons and River of Stars.
Oh ok, sounds cool, Mr Sullivan. I've only read your first book so far.

As far as I know it's always been available on B&N. That is the "self-published" version of course. I've not seen any release dates for the ACE version.

As for 2013 I can't remember how much a purist you are in what is fantasy and what is not. Rita Monaldi and Francesco Sorti have their third book coming out in English next April. It is much more historical fiction but there is an undertone that they allow for a magic realism or supernatural tone to some plot elements.
Also not sure if Jean-Marie Blas de Robles' Where the Tigers are at Home made much of a stir in The Netherlands, but it is getting an English publication in March of next year. I think the compares to David Mitchell and Haruki Murakami are apt enough to interest any of their fans.
I'm not sure when it'll be out - early-mid Summer I think - but Harper are publishing a new Tolkien book similar to The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrun, and this time it's King Arthur. I believe. Will try and dig up some details in the morning.
Oh ok, Thanks for that, Michael. I haven't been in B&N in awhile.

Of your tentative recommendations, The Legend of Broken by Caleb Carr does indeed seem quite tantalizing. Sadly there 's about zero advance reviews available sofar. But, based on the synopsis it's at least a potential (big) read. Any chance at all that I might extract some information about the book from you? It seems like a pseudo-medieval type of Fantasy, then again maybe it is not a Fantasy but actually straight up historical fiction? What made it worthwhile?
According to some trawling through amazon US -- so, you know, hmm --, Stella Gemmell's The City has been picked up for release in North America by Ace. They will release their edition in June, it seems, so around two months after Transworld publishes in the UK. [This trip into amazon's dark belly also had me running across an August 6th listing for Mark Lawrence's Emperor of Thorns, which I think we pretty much new but is still nice to see.]
Thanks for the listing of Orbit's spring / summer material, Mr. Sullivan. It seems -- based on the art director's preface to the original Orbit post with all the covers in, and also on the author's own posting of the cover since -- that the cover for Daniel Abraham's The Tyrant's Law just wasn't quite finished at the time; the book is still supposedly coming out in May, or at least that is still the target.
You are welcome. I'll add Tyrant's Law...the cover has been posted btw.

Most here probably know this, but Peter V. Brett finished The Daylight War recently and indicates that February (as noted earlier in the thread), the week of the 13, is the currently scheduled release date. I cannot wait for this one.
Actually, had no idea, but also eagerly anticipating this one.
Yes, but when, When, WHEN, will the Iron Jackal be available by e-book in the US? I know I can order an import book, but I have the first two on my Kindle, so I really want this as an e-book as well. These books are so good I just can't figure out why there is such a long delay this time. Of course the author's website is completely devoid of any information regarding the US/Iron Jackal thing. :(
