Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in June, 2014

Yesterday was my last day employed by Indigo Books and Music.  As of today, I am no longer a bookseller.  I will miss working at the World's Biggest Bookstore, and miss browsing our huge selection of books on, well, everything.  These past few months as the store closed I really came to appreciate how difficult it is to find new books online.  I couldn't believe, when I worked a shift at another store, how many SFF books came out that I hadn't heard of, even doing these monthly lists and being active in the online SFF community.  There's just so much being published and no way to hear about everything.  And once a book's been out for a while, it becomes even harder to find.

This is one of the reasons why I've been doing more shout-out posts lately, to bring awareness to books that sound cool that I don't see mentioned elsewhere.

Once again, this list is compiled from and reflects Canadian release dates.  I apologize in advance for any errors.  I accidentally went through the July listings for a while before realizing my mistake.  I believe I caught the later titles, but if you find one, please mention it in the comments and I'll fix it.
