Spotlight on August Books

This month we are featuring 36 books. There are more than twice as many new sff and related releases this month in traditional publishing not to speak of the countless indies from Amazon and Smashwords but we are limiting ourselves to books that will be reviewed here or are similar with such. For the full schedule of August 2012 titles known to us, you can consult the Upcoming Releases page.

 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 generally use the US  date 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Since information sometimes is out of date even in the Amazon links we use for listings, books get delayed or sometimes even released earlier, we would truly appreciate if you would send us an email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.

Now that is a collection of books for the month. I keep saying August is going to bust the book budget for sure. :) Thank you!

A lot of interesting books this month, but I'm really looking forward to Black Bottle!

Seven Wonders has me interested. I quite like the entries in what seems to be the growing subgenre of superhero SFF.

Great comments all and it's very interesting how different books appeal; for me the big novel is of course Air War (currently reading) and then Black Mausoleum, Devil in Silver and Zero Point, while I read/rv Blood Eye and its sequels on UK publication

September and October though are huge
