Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in January 2010

Disclaimer: Normally I compile this list from the Chapters/Indigo website. Due to the new year, the search I perform did not bring up titles for January 2010. So I used my previous method, going one by one to publisher pages to see what is coming out. Unfortunately not all publishers have easy searches for this purpose. So I finished my list by using a search on Amazon.ca. What this means is this list is not as accurate as previous lists (I've already found, and removed, a few books added by error). In other words, I would double check titles if you're waiting for something on this list to come out. I simply don't have the time to double check this entire list myself. Also, there appear to be a higher than usual number of reprints coming, particularly from Neal Asher.

Thanks for list. I only found your blog when I googled the name of my upcoming novel, The Keepers of Sulbreth by Susan Gourley. I hope you have a chance to review it and the books to follow it. I wish we had a bookstore around my home big enough to have an employee just in charge of the SF&F department.

Your book sounds interesting. I'll look it up when it comes into the store.

I actually work the fiction department, but I'm allowed leeway to focus on SF&F when it comes to displays and ordering.

Quick correction. The Mage in Black isn't out until April 2010. The original release date was January, but it changed. Thanks!

Thanks. I found several books where something similar occurred. I'll take it off the list.
