I think the final Rebus book - Ian Rankin - is out this summer too, but I can't find anything definite about it. Like a title. And there'll be more New Who and Torchwood books out, but again, they haven't made the Amazon pre-order thing yet.

That doesn't seem very many, and an alarming percentage are children's books, bearing in mind I also looked for the next Cornelia Funke and Philip Pullman and couldn't find them. I'll forward-date this in a while so it stays on top, hopefully, and I can refer to it. So, things I've forgotten, or recommendations?

Edit: Squee! New Thursday Next book by Jasper! I haven't been on the website for *so long*. And I don't like the Nursery Crime ones much, hence my forgetting all about his existence. But First Among Sequels looks good. And Danny Wallace out on the same day! July's going to be FANTASTIC.

Re-edit: I just realised, if the new Thursday Next book is set 16 years after the last one... Pickwick! Waaah!

Where did you hear that it's set 16 years after the last one? I thought it was supposed to be somewhere between books 3 and 4 chronologically. Of course, I could be wrong.

The blurb for it is on Jasper's site, I saw it when I went to look for the release date. Didn't mean to spoil anybody!

No worries. And it wasn't much of a spoiler, especially if it's on the website. I haven't looked at the site recently.

I think he mentioned sometime in the past that the next book might address the Samuel Pepys Affair which took place while Thursday was Bellman.

Children's books
You know, I'm not quite sure what a "children's book" is. Is it any book where the protaganist is a child? Or is it just anything fun, imaginative and a little unusual?

Re: Children's books
Heh, fair point, for some of them at least. Some of them definitely have style and vocabulary pitched at younger readers. I tend to like books-from-the-children's-section, though, they have more imagination and plot, generally.

trudi canavan - voice of the gods - 5 july

Or you can borrow ours, I think it's a US edition, and it was at Forbidden Planet a few weeks back ...

I've got the UK hardback editions of the first two, so I'll wait for that :) I get obsessed with certain editions sometimes...

I dunno if you know already, but thought I'd mention cos I saw at work that Janet Evanovich and Orson Scott Card both have books coming out in the not too distant
Apr. 29th, 2007 04:52 pm (UTC)
Ooh, yes, Janet Evanovich should be on there.

Orson Scott Card, not so much...two of the books of his I've read are wonderful, another two I haven't got round to finishing. He's written shitloads, and I may try to catch up at some point, but his politics keep annoying me and I don't want to give him money :D

Well Pickwick.........Who's been a naughty boy then? Crusin around the quiet country roads looking for young lads out on their own. Does your mother know what a pervert you are? I think not. And you stumbled across 'Ballikirain' WOW... that must have been very exciting for you have you never seen a castle before? And you got some lovely pictures too. It was just a pity somebody did'nt come along and loose their boot up your arse you dozy bugger. In future you should stay at home and spend your time downloading porn from the internet like the rest of your type.

Yes, porn is good :)

Heh, uh, yeah...I have a slight book addiction problem. Welcome!
