Spotlight on January Books

This month we are featuring 42 books. There were considerably more new sff releases but we tried to limit ourselves to a reasonable number and we chose the books most in tune with what's discussed here.

The release dates are US unless marked otherwise, though for books released in the UK and US in the same month but on different dates we use the earliest date without comment and they are first edition unless noted differently. The dates are on a best known basis so they are not guaranteed; same about the edition information. Since information sometimes is out of date even in the Amazon/Book Depository links we use for listings, books get delayed or sometimes even released earlier, we would truly appreciate if you would send us an email about any listing with incorrect information.


Sometimes a cover image is not available at the time of the post and also sometimes covers change unexpectedly so while we generally use the Amazon one when available and cross check with Google Images, the ultimate bookstore cover may be different.

Brave New Worlds is out now. At least it was at the Borders where I bought it this past weekend.

Thanks! :D Really wish you'd put a little description of each release though. Just a hassle to click through each one to find out what it's about. =/

Jeff: lots of books get early releases now - saw The Hammer in bookstores several days ago around Jan 1st for example; in the past it used to be that smaller imprints would do it, but today it seems the competition is so stiff, even larger sff imprints do it with some books; sadly the converse is sometimes the case too, especially with announced titles from some smaller imprints who are often late

Anon: I am sorry for that but the ratio work/benefit is too big and I'd rather spend the (limited) time I have for FBC on original content; personally i wish lists like this would be available in other genres like literary fiction and historical fiction and if anyone knows of any in those two genres I would be very thankful to point them to me
