New SF&F Books for August

Link

Lots of stuff to choose from this month. Star Trek, Star Wars, Horror, Steampunk, Anthologies, Space Opera, Fantasy, and much more.

Three that caught my attention:
Tales of Jack the Ripper edited by Ross E. Lockhart
Transcendental by James Gunn
ST: The Fall: Revelations and Dust by David R. George III

Kenobi, Dawn of the Jedi, and Agent of the Empire are the non-ST picks for me.

Re: New SF&F Books for August

I am sooooo insanely looking forward to Michael J. Sullivan's The Crown Tower (The Riyria Chronicles). If you've never read his Riyria Revelations series, you need to do yourself a favor and pick them up. It's one of the best fantasy series I've read in many, many years.

Re: New SF&F Books for August

Kenobi makes me think of other SW novels. Has anyone heard any rumors if the other two titles in Zhan's original Thrawn Trilogy will get a similar 20th Anniversary Edition like the Heir to the Empire did a couple of years ago? Since the Dark Force Rising was originally published in June of 1992, I'm assuming not, but I'd still like to see the other two titles get a similar treatment.

No, they won't. Sales didn't justify it.
