A short month February may be, but it’s not short—not at all—on new books, not least Trigger Warning, the great Neil Gaiman’s first collection of short stories since Fragile Things in 2006.
The next fortnight will also see the release of Guns of the Dawn, a standalone fantasy by Shadows of the Apt’s Adrian Tchaikovsky, and my personal pick of the period: Signal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. I can’t put my finger on why, exactly, but I’ve got a good feeling about this one.
Not only, but also: the second volume of The Shattered Sea is almost upon us. Half the World by Joe Abercrombie is only a few weeks away!
This edition of the Hitlist also features new books by Holly Black, Allan Stratton, Naomi Foyle, Chris Evans, Brian McClellan, Jonathan Barnes, Anna Smaill, Myke Cole, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Dave Bara, Emmi Itaranta, Victoria Aveyard, Mark Stay, Arwen Elys Dayton, Oscar de Muriel, Randy Henderson and John Joseph Adams.
