- Stephen Baxter, Manifold Time. SF.
- Richard Lee Byers, Dark Fortune. Horror.
- James M. Cain, Mignon. Historical novel.
- Agatha Christie, Six Mary Westmacott Novels. Omnibus of the romance novels Christie first published under the "Mary Westmacott" name: Giants' Bread, Absent in the Spring, Unfinished Portrait, The Rose and the Yew Tree, A Daughter's a Daughter, and The Burden. Most of my copies of Westmacott had gone walkabout some time ago; this gave me a chance to get all six in an inexpensive volume.

- Daphne du Maurier, Don't Look Now. 2008 compilation of nine du Maurier stories, selected by Patrick McGrath.
- Roger Elwood, Dwellers. Christian novel of the war of good vs. evil, with the Nephilim and Satan as the baddies. I don't expect too much from Elwood and a quick glance shows I'm probably right: the hero's name is Kindred and his rescuer/mentor is named Klatu.
- S. K. Epperson, Borderland. Horror.
- Mertin H. Greenberg, editor, The Further Adventures of Superman. Look! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's an anthology of ten stories featuring the Man of Steel!

- David Weber & Linda Evans, Hell's Gate. Doorstopper military SF novel -- over 1200 pages!
- Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, editors. I picked up this quintet of "Dragonlance" anthologies for twenty cents apiece, so I thought I'd give them a try: The Dragons of Krynn, Heroes and Fools: Tales of the Fifth Age, The Players of Gilean: Tales from the World of Krynn (this one is based on a novella by Weis and Aron Eisenberg [Nog from Deep Space Nine]), Rebels and Tyrants: Tales of the Fifth Age, and Relics and Omens: Tales of the Fifth Age. Sixty-three stories all together.
