- Richard Chizmar, editor - Shivers VII (Cemetery Dance). Another great collection of rare and new stories -- including an early Stephen King that has not been reprinted since it's 1979 appearance in a men's magazine. Other authors include Clive Barker, Ed Gorman, Graham Masterton, Bill Pronzini,and Lisa Tuttle. 400 pages of awesome.
- David Ely - Seconds (Harper Voyager). A reprint of the 1963 classic. Remember the Rock Hudson movie?
- Neil Gaiman - Chu's Day (HarperCollins). A children's book. (this month aalso sees the release of the deluxe edition of Gaiman's graphic novel The Books of Magic from Vertigo.)
- "Harrington Hext" - Number 87 (Prologue). Hext was a pen name for the prolific and once-popular Eden Phillpotts (1862-1960); Number 87 is a pseudo-science thriller written in 1929. Phillpotts was a neighbor of the young Agatha Christie and encouraged her to begin writing -- for that reason alone he should receive our eternal gratitude.
- Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson - A Memory of Light (Tor). Yep, the Wheel of Time series is finally ending. Tor is also releasing The Eye of the World this month, volume 3 in it's graphic novel version of the series.
- Dean Koontz - Odd Interlude (Bantam). The print edition of three ebooks, novellas designed to keep Koontz's fans happy while waiting for Deeply Odd, scheduled for later this year. I guess Bantam couldn't resist putting this one out on paper.
- Joe R. Lansdale - Dead Aim (Subterranean). Hap and Leonard are back in a brand-new novella!
- Tanith Lee - Tempting the Gods: The Selected Stories of Tanith Lee, Volume 1 (Wildside). Sounds tempting.
- Lois Lowry - Son (Thorndike). The final book in The Giver Quartet, following The Giver (1993), Gathering Blue (2000), and Messenger (2004).
- Mark Millar - Kick-Ass 2 Prelude -- Hit Girl (Titan). Graphic novel with art by John Romita, Jr. This one should kick...well, you know.
- Hope Mirrlees - Lud-in-the-Mist (Prologue). The classic fantasy.
- William F. Nolan and Jason Brock - Tales from William F. Nolan's Dark Universe (Bluewater). Adaptations of some of Nolan's stories. I enjoy anything Nolan.
- Mark Rahner - Dejah Thoris and the White Apes of Mars (Dynamite). With art by Lui Antonio, this graphic novel based on ERB characters has a couple of good points going for it -- yes, I'm talking about the pneumatic Dejah here.
- John Scalzi - The Human Division (Tor). Beginning January 15, the weekly e-Book release of this 13 episode novel begins. A unique marketing approach, but then Scalzi himself is pretty unique.
- Robert Silverberg - Lord of Darkness (Nonstop). A reprint of a 1983 novel based on a true story. A gripping read of an African adventure.
- Lavie Tidhar - The Bookman Histories (Angry Robot). An omnibus of the three Bookman history novels.
What are you looking forward to this month?
