A new year means a new month means it’s time for another edition of the British Fiction Hitlist!
A pretty good one, too: eclectic, yes, but choice is awesome, and the fortnight forthcoming is full of it. There’s new fantasy from Evie Manieri and Amanda Hocking, among others, and a bit of body horror courtesy Nick Cutter. Science fiction fans should be reading The Galaxy Game by Karen Lord—a sort-of sequel to The Best of All Possible Worlds—and Golden Sun by Pierce Brown, my favourite book of 2015 to date.
All that, plus Brandon Sanderson’s superheroes are back in Firefight, and from the author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, we have The Here and Now.
This edition of the Hitlist also features new books by Jennifer Donnelly, Sally Gardner, John Connolly, Jennifer Ridyard, Evie Manieri, Peyton Marshall, Matt Haig, Otto Penzler, Russell Hoban & Alexis Deacon, Nick Lake, Amanda Hocking, Ian Ross, Gregory Benford & Larry Niven, Alex Bell, Lou Morgan and Nick Cutter.
