Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in May, 2015

As usual, this list was compiled using Amazon Canada's website.  If something's missing, mention it in the comments and I'll add it in.  There are some great books coming out in May.  I've put stars next to books that caught my interest while putting the list together.

I've been considering retiring this column as it's a lot of work to put together and I'm not sure how useful it is for others.  I looked in to adding photos and/or links, and it's just too much work (I know SF Signal has a column like this with links and photos, but I also know they've got a program from Amazon that lets them enter the titles/authors and does the rest of the work for them).  If you like this column, please mention it in the comments.
