Traveling Today and 5 Possibilities for Fantasy Debut of 2010
I'm Amtraking it across the US today so no content for today.
I would point readers over to Speculative Horizons, where James has a list of 5 titles/authors who might take the crown for Fantasy debut of the year.
Check it out. Interesting books all around. 4 of the 5 were on my radar already, Farlander being the exception.
And regarding cover art, let's play a quick game of "Which of these ones is not like the others?"
It's pretty clear how derivative the cloaked backlit guy with a sword really is, isn't it? Judging the books solely on cover art, I would read them in this order.
1. The Hundred Thousand Kingdons - N.K. Jemisin
2. Farlander - Col Buchanan
3. The Left Hand of God - Paul Hoffman
4. Tome of the Undergates - Sam Sykes
5. Spellwright - Blake Charlton
But it's not about covers it is? Head over to Speculative Horizons to get the all the details on these much anticipated titles.
