Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in December 2014

As usual, this list was compiled from Amazon Canada's listings for the month.  I'd like to point out that Jim C. Hines has published in ebook format an annotated version of the first novel he ever wrote, Rise of the Spider Goddess.  There aren't that many reprints this month compared to the last few, but again we're seeing a rise in trade paperback and ebook formats and a real lessening in the number of mass market books coming out.

The Strange Library by Murakami sounds neat (among many others on the list that also sound interesting). Thanks for list.
