Science Fiction and Fantasy Coming in October, 2014

Before the World's Biggest Bookstore closed, one of my co-workers predicted that we'd start seeing fewer mass market original releases (where the book is released in mass market without a hardcover or trade paperback edition first) and more ebooks and trade paperback originals.  Either October's a slow month for mass markets, or her prediction's coming true faster than I anticipated because there are very few new mass market books coming out that month, and not many reprints of other formats either.  This list was compiled from Amazon's Canadian website, and while I try to make it as comprehensive as I can, I'm sure some books have been missed.  Several of E. R. Eddison (a contemporary of Tolkien and Lewis)'s books are being reprinted, as well as two by John Wyndham.  And anyone anxiously awaiting the follow up to the Hugo and Nebula Award winning Ancillary Justice, Ancillary Sword, by Ann Leckie, the wait is almost over.
