Science fiction and Fantasy Books Coming In May

Starting this month the Sci-Fi Fan Letter will be changing. The coming soon lists will still be posted on the first of the month and may or my not be accompanied by reviews. From now on I will be posting reviews as I finish reading the books. You won't find any truely negative reviews here. If I hate the book that much I'll simply stop reading it. I will be changing the format of the reviews to show pros and cons of books rather than simply the pros. I will not be starring them, as I find that kind of system unhelpful. Unless credited to someone else all reviews from here on out will be by me. I intend to keep posting author interviews and themed reading lists so check back often.

In regards to this coming soon list, perceptive people (meaning people who have been visiting this site for a while) will likely notice that this list is more comprehensive. I've discovered a few new tricks in searching for new books so this list includes more smaller press books. Please note, that publishing schedules are not absolute, so take the list with a grain of salt. Just because a publisher intends a book to come out at a certain time doesn't guarantee it. Also, Abercrombie's books are being published in the UK and US by different publishers at different times. As both are carried in my store I've included both in this post.
