Some more ranting to come…

No, browsing amazone.com today really didn’t make me happy at all. Sure, a great thing was finding out that George R. R. Martin’s A Dance With Dragons will apparently be released this year -finally- in September.  But what definitely disappointed me was that Scott Lynch’s Republic of Thieves has been delayed from August 2007 to February 24th 2009. So nope, not happy about that. After all it’s been the book I’ve been looking forward to most for this year.

So here’s an updated list on my personal top 7 books that I’ve been waiting for to be published in 2008 only to realize that 2 of them have been delayed into 2009:

Last Argument of Kings  by Joe Abercrombie – March 20th 2008 – already came out, but already out of stock at amazon.com, though only temporary. Let’s hope for them or Barnes&Noble getting it back soon

The Digital Plague by Jeff Somers – May 12th 2008 – his second book and sequel to The Electric Church, awesome Noir!

Kushiel’s Mercy by Jacqueline Carey – June 12 2008 – the final book in the Imriel triology and one that definitely promises some more of Carey’s awesome plotting combined with great characters and a certain kink 😉

The Steel Remains by Richard Morgan – August 21 2008 – Richard Morgan’s first take on pointedly “different” fantasy

A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin – September 30th 2008 – the eagerly awaited 5th book in Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga

Republic of Thieves  by Scott Lynch – February 24th 2009 – third volume of the Gentlemen Bastards sequence

The Bastards and the Knives by Scott Lynch – May 15th 2009 – a collection of Gentlemen Bastards short stories and novellas

    I don’t know if you are into “classic” noir fiction, but if you are you might want to check out Bourbon Street by Leonce Gaiter. I thought it was pretty good for a first novel…
