Autumn Books

It's the end of July which means for all intents and purposes that summer is almost over. Thank god. Whose bright idea was it to let the temperature outside get above 80 degrees?

Since the end is in sight it's time to look forward to the best season in the world; FALL! Can't you just see the slowly turning leaves and feel the crispness of the air? Time to snuggle under a blanket or in a fuzzy hoodie and read some new books! And, oh man, are there a lot of good ones coming out this autumn.

Head under the jump for a list of sixteen must have books coming out this fall!

Daring - Elliot James: A sequel to last year's Charming, it follows John Charming as he fights against werewolves and other things that go bump in the night. Charming was pretty good, so I'm looking forward to this.

Ancillary Sword - Ann Leckie: A sequel to the award winning Ancillary Justice, this is going to be EPIC.

The Autumn Republic - Brian McClellan: The final volume to McClellan's Powder Mage trilogy, this looks to be one of THE books to read this fall.

The Slow Regard of Silent Things - Patrick Rothfuss: A novella from Rothfuss' incredible Kingkiller series. This will bridge the GRRM-long gap until the third book in the series comes out. Hopefully. Maybe.

Prince Lestat - Anne Rice: It's going to be awful. I'm still going to read the shit out of it. I don't even care.

Drawn Blades - Kelly McCullough: I really LOVE this series about a disgraced assassin finding redemption. I can not WAIT for this.

The Complete Ankh-Morpork - Terry Pratchett: A beautiful coffee table book full of maps about our favorite imaginary city, Ankh-Morpork. The special edition Discworld books are always worth a look and this one promises to be both beautiful and hilarious.

The Mammoth Book of Steampunk Adventures - ed Sean Wallace: Steampunk seems as if it's been on wane recently, so hopefully this anthology will pick things back up. It will include short stories from Tobias S. Bucknell, Cherie Priest and Caitlin R. Kiernan.

The Clockwork Dagger - Beth Cato: More steampunk? Yes please! The early buzz about this series makes me very optimistic. It sounds full of adventure and inventions!

Die and Stay Dead - Nicholas Kaufmann: A sequel to last year's excellent Dying Is My Business, we're back with Trent as he searches for answers to his amnesia and his strange immortality. It's a rare urban fantasy noir that DOESN'T take place in LA.

The New Annotated HP Lovecraft - ed Leslie S. Klinger: I'm a sucker for those big annotated coffee table books of classic literature and this one looks extra wonderful. Annotated by the same person who annotated the GORGEOUS Annotated Dracula, this is one I will be preordering!

A Night In The Lonesome October - Roger Zelazny (re-release): My FAVORITE Halloween novel is getting a re-release! It's been out of print for YEARS so now is the time to pick one up! With thirty one chapters, it's an absolute joy to read along with every night in October.

Lock In - John Scalzi: A new series from the Hugo award winning author, this sounds like some awesome, creepy science fiction!

Forged By Desire - Bec McMaster: Kathy and I LOVE THIS SERIES TO PIECES! Neither of us can wait for this new volume. It's a steampunk romance series that has vampires and werewolves! What more could you ask for?

The Getaway God - Richard Kadrey: Sandman Slim is back again for another adventure that is sure to leave him bruised, bloody and broken, just the way we like it.

The Bullet-Catcher's Daughter - Rod Duncan: A new steampunk series that sounds truly exciting. Double lives, double crossings, double the fun!

So that's my list. It's going to be a fall jampacked with awesome new books! I can't wait! Tell me in comments what books you're looking forward to this autumn!
