2008's Books I Can't Wait to Read!

In Odd We Trust and Odd Hours by Dean Koontz - Not much of a Koontz fan but I greatly enjoyed the first 2 Odd adventures.
Pirate Sun by Karl Schroeder - Loved Sun of Suns. I'm very glad to see this series continue.
Iron Angel by Alan Campbell - This is the 2nd part of the Deepgate Codex that started with Scar Night, which was a good read.
Marsbound by Joe Haldeman - Haldeman's a favorite. I'll read anything he writes.
In a Time of Treason by David Keck - Sequel to gritty In the Eye of Heaven.
The Price by Alexandra Sokoloff - The Harrowing was an awesome fun read. Can't wait to read this one. Good horror novels are such a rare treat.
Severance Package by Duane Swierczynski - Loved The Blonde. Am also looking forward to reading his X-men title, Cable.
The Lost Ones by Christopher Golden - The final book of the Veil trilogy.
The Last Oracle by James Rollins - Woo-hoo! More Sigma Force!
Sword Song by Bernard Cornwell - Part 4 of the Saxon Chronicles. Thank Odin!
Jack: Secret Histories by F. Paul Wilson - Repairman Jack as a boy!
Stalking the Vampire; The Dragon Done It and The Other Teddy Roosevelts by Mike Resnick - I'll pick up anything with Resnick's name on it.
Avenging Fury by John Farris - The final part to the Fury and the Terror trilogy.
Death's Head Maximum Offense by David Gunn - Sven returns!
Orphan's Journey by Robert Buettner - Jason returns!
Blue War by Jeffrey Thomas - More punktown!
The Born Queen by Greg Keyes - Finally the final part to the Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone series.
In the Courts of the Crimson Kings by S.M. Stirling - Sequel to the Sky People.
Space Vulture by Gray K. Wolf and John J. Myers - Don't know much about this one, but the cover art is super cool retro.
The Rosetta Key by William Dietrich - Gage returns in this follow up to Napoleon's Pyramids. This is the book I most want to read this year.
Duma Key by Stephen King - I'm a pretty selective King reader; but this one looks interesting.
Blasphemy by Douglas Preston - I really liked the latest Pendergast, The Wheel of Darkness and hope this one's good too. If there's a new Pendergast book, I'll be grabbing that as well.
Ex-KOP by Warren Hammond - More SciFi noir? Yes, please!
Biohell by Andy Remic - Can't wait to find out what happens next in this sequel to War Machine.
Inside Straight by George R.R. Martin - Never read the Wild Cards, but this has gotten some good reviews already, so I'll give it a shot. Locus online has A Dance with Dragons listed for a June release. I wonder if that's true.
The Somnambulist by Johnathan Barnes - The well reviewed British novel gets a U.S. edition.

Glad to hear you're looking forward to Space Vulture. (I'm the editor.) That is a cool cover, isn't it? If you'd like to know much more about the book, check out the authors' website at -- Moshe Feder

Mr. Feder: Thanks for the heads up. That's a pretty nifty site. It certainly looks like my kind of read :)
