Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in August 2014

** I have revised the list (July 7), adding a bunch of titles that were missed in my original post **

Like my last few lists, this one was generated from Amazon.ca.  It's suspiciously short, making me wonder if it's a slow summer for publishers or if Amazon's not reporting all the upcoming books the way it used to.  Anyway, it looks like Games Workshop is reprinting the Horus Heresy as I noticed many of its titles in the list (perhaps with new covers?).  I tried to confirm that the YA list was actually YA as Amazon has the tendency to throw 9-12 fiction in that list too, but if there's an error I apologize.

Hi, Jessica. You're definitely not catching everything, because one of my books (SHADOWS, written as E.C. Blake), doesn't show up on your list and is releasing August 5 in hardcover. I suspect there must be others, because that hardcover list in particular looks way too short.

I've added your book to the list.

I used to do this list by going to publisher's upcoming release pages but that took ages and some publishers didn't have an upcoming release page. Then I used Indigo's website, but they changed their format so that doesn't work. And now Amazon's getting unreliable. Maybe it's time to start checking in with all the publishers again.
