It’s probably going to be a bit quiet here until the holiday is over, but in the meantime here’s some links of interest.

Seeing a release date for The Tempering of Men caused me to see if I could find a date for Sarah Monette’s next book.  Her next novel is titled The Goblin Emperor and will be written under the name Katherine Addison.  According to a recent post on her blog, it is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2012.  I cannot wait!

Also on Sarah Monette’s blog, she announced that she has the rights to Melusine and The Virtu back and is looking to get them both back into print. This is fantastic news and I really hope this happens so that new readers can find these two books.  She did say if she can’t find another publisher, she will self publish them so they are available to those who want to read them, though.

Seanan McGuire got to show off the cover for Deadline today.  This will be the second book in her Newsflesh series written under the name Mira Grant.  It’s scheduled for May 2011.

Catherynne M. Valente also posted the cover for her upcoming novel, Deathless.  It’s coming out in March 2011.

I received my newsletter about new books available for pre-order through The Signed Page recently and they have some great books coming up – River Marked by Patricia Briggs, Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, and Pale Demon by Kim Harrison to name a few.  They also have signed copies of Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold in stock.
