September 2015: New Releases in SFF to be excited about

September has quite a few books to look out for in Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Here’s a few of the highlights:

 

Shepherds crown pratchett

The Shepherd’s Crown

Terry Prachett

September 1st, 2015

HarperCollins

 

 

 

The last Discworld novel. Fans everywhere are awaiting this with tears in their eyes. Rest in Peace, Sir Terry.

 

 

sorcerer to the crown

Sorcerer to the Crown

Zen Cho

September 1st, 2015

Ace

 

 

 

This novel is Cho’s debut, and has folks abuzz with interest. Definitely one I’ll check out. The story looks to be in the spirit of Johnathan Strange and Mr Norrell, a book about the state of English magic, and stuffy old men thinking the upstart freed slave Zacharias Wythe entirely inappropriate as the Crown Sorcerer. Especially as he seeks to bring women into their society.

 

hunter

Hunter

Mercedes Lackey

September 1st, 2015

Disney-Hyperion

 

 

 

 

Rollicking new fantasy series by veteran of the genre Mercedes Lackey. Read my review of it here.

 

 

archmage ra salvatore

Archmage

R.A. Salvatore

September 1st, 2015

Wizards of the Coast

 

 

 

The next installment of the long-running Drizzt Do’Urden series. Drizzt returns to the Underdark.

 

drafter

The Drafter

Kim Harrison

September 1st, 2015

Gallery Books

 

 

 

Author of everyone’s favorite Hollows series has started a new series about an agent for a deadly organization who meddles with time. Like all espionage stories, someone has messed up her timeline and likely framed her for something.

 

aftermath

Aftermath: Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Chuck Wendig

September 4th, 2015

LucasBooks

 

 

 

This is the first novel bridging the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The first of several, we can assume. If Wendig writes the way he normally does, this’ll be goooooood. Not to be missed.

 

cinder spires

The Cinder Spires: The Aeronaut’s Windlass

Jim Butcher

September 29th, 2015

Roc

 

 

 

The first of a new Steampunk series by Dresden Files Author Jim Butcher. Sure to be serious fun. Every Dresden Files book has been fast paced action and great story lines, I’m sure this will be, too.

 

sleeper spindle

The Sleeper and the Spindle

Neil Gaiman

September 29th, 2015

HarperCollins

 

 

 

The story originally published in Rags and Bones (Little, Brown) now with beautiful metallic illustrations by Chris Riddell.

Menagerie

Rachel Vincent

This one is excellent, and should be on your buy list. Read my review of it here.
