A little groundhog showed up at the house today and said “sorry about the six extra weeks of winter. Maybe these will make up for it.”
What did he bring?
* Coyote Destiny, by Allen Steele (Ace): True fact: My very first author fan letter was to Allen Steele. I found his e-mail and gushed in hopefully not-too-stalkery fashion about how we went to the same high school (sort of) and how I liked his books AND WAS STANDING RIGHT OUTSIDE HIS WINDOW. Well, maybe not that last part. He wrote back one of those polite “thanks!” letters authors learn to write to overenthusiastic fans, and that was pretty much it, until we eventually met face to face AND I SHOWED HIM THE TATTOO OF HIM I HAVE ON MY CHEST. I’m kidding! It’s not really of him. Just his face on a unicorn body. That’s not weird. I’m going to stop oversharing now. Anyway, this is the latest in the Coyote series, which I’ve enjoyed the heck out of so far, and it’ll be out March 2nd.
* Shalador’s Lady, by Anne Bishop (Roc): The new installment of Bishop’s “Black Jewels” series. It promises dark eroticism. That’s the best kind! Also out March 2nd.
* And Falling, Fly, by Skyler White (Berkeley): She’s a fallen angel! He’s a neurochemist! They’re caught between worlds! No, really, it’s not a metaphor: In the book they’re caught between worlds. Dark fantasy, out March 2nd.
* Deep in the Woods, by Chris Marie Green (Ace): Sixth book in the Vampire Babylon series, featuring vampire slayer Dawn Madison. Out March 2nd.
* Where Angels Fear to Tread, by Thomas E. Sniegowski (Roc): The latest installment of the Remy Chandler series, he being an angel-turned-private investigator, this time on the trail of a missing child. March 2nd.
* Xombies: Apocalypticon, by Walter Greatshell (Ace): Zombies! With an X! The followup to Xombies: Apocalypse Blues. In other news, “Apocalypticon” is my new favorite word. Out February 23rd.
* Roadkill, by Rob Thurman (Roc): The next in the urban fantasy series featuring half-human PI Cal Leandros and his brother Niko. March 2nd.
