Books coming out soon, or just out:

The Shape of Desire by Sharon Shinn. It's a modern day story of a woman who loves a shapeshifter, but becomes afraid that he has transformed into something that is attacking people. Publishers Weekly said Shinn’s frequent comparisons of humans and animals are subtle, quietly building the question of whether the true monsters are those who change shape or humans with the capacity to hurt those they love.

The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin. This is her new fantasy novel that should be out in May. PW said Jemisin’s gripping series launch immerses readers in an unfamiliar but enthralling world as well as a rousing political and supernatural adventure.

The Straits of Galahesh by Bradley Beaulieu. This is a secondary world fantasy, sequel to The Winds of Khalakovo.

Blue Magic by A.M. Dellamonica. This is her second book, the sequel to Indigo Springs.

Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal. This is a sequel to Shades of Milk and Honey, set in a magical version of Regency England.

Casket of Souls by Lynn Flewelling. This is a new fantasy in the Nightrunners series.

Renegade Magic by Stephanie Burgis. This is the sequel to Kat, Incorrigible. These are also set in Regency England with magic, but with a young girl heroine who kicks serious ass. The covers look like children's books (and technically they are children's books) but they're written so that adults can enjoy them too.

Whispers Underground by Ben Aaronovitch. The sequel to Rivers of London/Midnight Riot, and Moon over Soho. Set in modern-day London, about wizards who work for Scotland Yard. This series is funny, it's a suspenseful mystery, it's an original take on urban fantasy.

Chicks Dig Comics In Chicks Dig Comics, editors Lynne M. Thomas (Hugo-Award-winning Chicks Dig Time Lords) and Sigrid Ellis bring together essays by award-winning writers and artists who celebrate the comics medium and its creators, and who examine the characters and series that they love.

Last Breath by Rachel Caine. The latest in the Morganville Vampires series.
