- Anthony, Piers, Unicorn Point. Fantasy. Book Six of the Apprentice Adept series.
- Bayer, William, Wallflower. A Detective Frank Janek mystery. Does anyone else remember when Richard Crenna played Janek? There were seven made-for-television movies, from 1985 to 1994.
- "Carter, Ashley" [Harry Whittington], Mandingo Master. Plantation novel about Falconhurst, the South's greatest slave breeding plantation. Super cheesy, but any Whittington is a good Whittington.
- Dozois, Gardner, editor, The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twentieth Annual Edition. Twenty-five stories from 2002.
- Farris, John, Solar Eclipse. Thriller.
- Garnett, David, Bikini Planet. SF. For some reason they couldn't fit the words "Jello Wrestling" into the title.
- Hautala, Rick, The Mountain King. Horror. This is the Leisure edition, which adds three stories to the title novel.
- Johnston, William, Get Smart!. TV tie-in.
- Landesman, Peter, Blood Acre. "New York Gothic Noir" (well, according to one of the blurbs).
- MacMillan, Scott, Knights of the Blood. Fantasy, created by Katherine Kurtz and written by her husband. Kurtz's name appears first on the cover and spine, and in larger type. Evidently she did do some minor editing of the novel.
- "Parrish, P. J." [Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols], Dead of Winter. A Louis Kincaid mystery.
- Reed, Philip, Bird Dog. A Car Noir thriller.
- Ross Thomas, Chinaman's Chance. Thriller by a master. This onje features Artie Wu and Quincy Durant.
