This week, I'll lead off with Reunion, the new graphic novel from Pascal Girard, which is this week's entry in the "I would have bought it anyway" category. Girard is a
Wolfsangel is the first book in a planned historical fantasy series by M.D. Lachlan (pseudonym for a British writer whose real name can be found with a bit of judicious Googling and Wikipedia'ing), published as a trade paperback from Pyr last week (and in the UK last year). It has a brutal Viking king, at least one prophecy, witches who live on a troll wall, and the gods Odin and Loki -- plus a great wolf peering out at you from the cover. How can you resist?
The Rise of the Iron Moon is the third novel in a lose steampunk series from the excitable British writer Stephen Hunt, in which a friendless orphan suddenly finds herself on the run with a foreign vagrant and dealing with the fate of her entire nation. (No point for guessing that she has a Secret Destiny; every genre protagonist is issued a Secret Destiny during the dice-rolling stage of character generation.) Tor published Iron Moon as a hardcover a couple of weeks ago, back in March -- so you should be able to find it everywhere  now.
And last for this week is a new novel from Grandmaster Frederik Pohl -- over ninety and still writing regularly, as you'd know if you followed his Hugo-winning blog -- All the Lives He Led, a SF story about the 2000th anniversary of the Mount Vesuvius eruption, and one ex-American caught up in the middle of plots and mysterious disappearances ahead of that grand celebration. It's also from Tor, also hardcover, and is officially on-sale on April 12th.
 Possibly not including major book retailers fighting through bankruptcy proceedings, of course, and only within the narrow geographical regions in which Tor has license to sell books.
 He's probably a Francophile as well, since his books are first published in France. But, as was pointed out to me in email, what I meant to say is that he works in French, and thus is a Francophone.
