Book Recs

I'm looking for something to read, so rec me books! New books, or books that are about to come out, including your own books. Comment with title, author, and why you liked it/are looking forward to it.

ETA: Fantasy, mystery, science fiction, romance, it's all good.
ETA2: And historical fiction or non-fiction!

I haven't read de Lint because he usually does more contemporary settings, and I usually go for created world or historical setting fantasy. But he's one of Troyce's favorite writers. And I've met him a couple of times and he's a really nice guy.

You probably wouldn't like the Kitty books, then; they're definitely contemporary. But the books I mentioned by Carol Berg are historical fantasy, you might like those...

You also might like Blue Moon Rising by Simon R. Green. I've had a somewhat hard time getting into his urban fantasy novels, but this one is straight-up fantasy (princes and castles and dragons and magic and stuff) and it sucked me right in. The hero is abjectly reluctant, the dragon is not what the hero expected, and the damsel isn't so much distressed as running low on patience... I think there is a sequel floating around in out-of-print-land, too, and I keep meaning to track it down, because I'd really like to read more of Rupert's story.

Also, Brokedown Palace by Steven Brust -- have you read that? I can't remember if it was you or someone else on my flist who had read it. But it's good. Really fascinating characters; a lot of palace intrigue, but also a lot of adventure and fantastical stuff too.

(Also, I'm totally bookmarking your post. What a fantastic bunch of recs! Whee!)
