- Steve Alten, Goliath. Thriller.
- Stuart Bailey, editor, with Mai Abu ElDahab & David Reinfurt - Dot Dot Dot 13, or Report of the DDDepartment of Science Fiction & Economics. A strange "little" magazine, published at The Hague; this issue evidently underwritten by The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design & Architecture. It strangely includes a "screenplay" of a Playboy Panel that included Asimov, Budrys, Sturgeon, Anderson, Pohl, Clarke, Heinlein, Tenn, van Vogt, and Blish.

- Suzette Haden Elgin, Twelve Fair Kingdoms. Fantasy novel, first book of the Ozark Fantasy trilogy.

- Robert Jordan, Crossroads of Twilight. Fantasy novel, volume ten in The Wheel of Time series.
- Murphy & Sapir, creators, The Destroyer: Wolf's Bane. Action, #132 in the series. This one appears to be by Mike Newton. Remo and werewolves? A great combination.
- Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, The Relic. Horror. The first in a long line of bestsellers. I think I already have a copy of this, but I'm not sure, so to be on the safe side...
- Lewis Shiner, Glimpses. Fantasy novel. Winner of the World Fantasy Award for best novel.
- Dan Simmons, The Terror. Historical thriller and doorstop.
- James Swallow, Judge Dredd: Whiteout. SF tie-in to the comic series. Hope the planned movie reboot turns out better than the Stallone train wreck.
- Natsuki Takaya, Fruits Basket 2. Manga. I don't do manga, but whenever I see one for a quarter, I pick it up...grandchildren, you know.
- Dave Wolverton, editor, L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, Volume IX. SF anthology. Hubbard has a lot to answer for, but some of his pulp work and this ongoing contest/series almost redeem him in my eyes.
