    Forget Cameron, I feel sorry for me.

    Yes, when I tried The Master Cameron, that dog book came up first by Bruce Cameron and The Master was the second book. Now it's gone.

    Thanks for the info, Alucard Dracula backwards.

    Hi Alucard. Tyrant's Throne is June 6 now (someone may have have already mentioned that old news) and The Seven/Vagrant is now October 3.

    As I wrote (maybe in too small of a letter size) The Seven is a UK pub date. It's already out and about. And so is Tyrant's Throne.

    Usually the dates are US, because that's where majority of books is published first. However, when UK or any other country gets their books before US, for any reason, I choose to put that date.
    Basically whenever is first pub. date that's what goes on the list. I usually include a disclaimer right next to it to let people know ;) I forgot to add that next to Tyrant's Throne, but now you know.

    I get irritated with the Peter Newman books coming out so late in the US versus the UK, but this was a reminder for me to go order it from a UK-based seller on AbeBooks.

    ETA: I even had an AbeBooks coupon in my email. Got it for about $13 with free shipping.

    Yes that's certainly an option if you read paper books still. Bookdepository is another good one irrelevant of where one is in the world because they have worldwide free shipping.
    If you read kindle books exclusively however you'll have to wait.

    Any fellow Planet of the Apes fans out there?
    In 2017 two POTA Omnibuses were published. Vol 1 contains episodes 2 &3 and vol. II has episodes 3,4 and 2001 version of the original #1 whose exclusion is outlined in the first Amazon review.

    UPCOMING September 2017 is Omnibus 3. (The movies after 2001). Omnibus 4 & 5 will be other related tales.

    Sanderson's Oathbringer now has a release date: November 14th
    And Andy Weir's new novel Artemis is slated for November 14th as well. I'm quite excited about this one. Didn't know about it before today.

    Thank you!

    @Darth Tater
    Are these omnibuses of previously published material? Because I only list books that are being published for the first time.

    Well, to give you about the shortest possible answer to your speciic question : some are brand new never before published stories.

    S. K. Inkslinger Will likely be killed by a Lannister soon

    14th November for Oathbringer! I should be done with The Words of Radiance right around then, so it'll be a perfect continuation. Now I can't wait for that day to arrive. :cat:

    For all you Iron Druid fans, Scourged (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #9) by Kevin Hearne was supposed to come out on August 3rd, but I saw now they bumped it to April 3rd 2018. So we have to wait for the conclusion of the story until next year.
    In the meantime, a short story collection Besiged came out on July 11th. So there's that if you need something to tie you over. I've read it, it's pretty standard as far as Hearne's short story collection go although it is slightly longer than his previous collections.

    So we wait on the Iron Druid resolution, but I'm still supper excited for A Plague of Giants in October, Hearne's first epic fantasy book.
