Books you're hanging out for.

Just wondering what books people are totally hanging out for that are currently not available (as ebook or pbook).

My top 2 would be

1) Peter Watts "State of Grace" (working title)... a "sidequal" to his awesome novel "Blindsight". It's still a work in progress, but the first chapter is available on his website and it's frickin' cool. I can't wait for this one.

2) Peter F Hamilton's third novel of his "void" trilogy, "The Evolutionary Void". Been hanging out for this one for ages... so much so that I think I need to re-read the first two so I can remember what the hell has happened so far. Available on Amazon in August (24th).

Well, the granddaddy of all overdue sequels, A Method for Madness from David Gerrold - the fifth book in the War Against the Chtorr series. It's been 16 years since book 4, so I'm definitely going to have to go back and re-read them to remember the storyline.

Didn't know about State of Grace, but I want it (will wait for the full novel, though, and not read a sample chapter.)

Yeah, I'm waiting for The Evolutionary Void.

Also anticipating I Shall Wear Midnight(Terry Pratchett, Discworld/Tiffany Aching), Zero History (William Gibson), All Clear (Connie Willis), Surface Detail (Iain Banks, Culture), and The Dervish House (Ian McDonald, out, but I don't have it yet) to name a few.

I've never heard the expression "hanging out for" before. I assume it means "eagerly awaiting", or something similar?

That was my guess, but I blamed my English.

I checked on internet, and confirmed my first impression. If I find it fine, if not it will cross my path, sometime. For the moment I keep minding my business.

No... I like to dangle from high places such as trees or telephone wires.

The entire Void series is geo-restricted.

WoT is also geo-restricted but only since the agency model. I was able to buy the first 3 books prior to the switch and cannot access them now (BoB).

Are you sure? I'm in Australia and it looks like Amazon is letting me buy them if I want to...?

It is on BoB and I checked elsewhere too. Perhaps Australia is part of the US/UK release? I don't think Amazon got a special deal.

Yeah I think you're right. I've found Australia is frequently included in the list of countries restricted by "geo-restriced" books... that's why I'm surprised.

Turns out I'm actually wrong. I finally signed up for Kindle PC (Stackpole) and it seems I could buy the Void series. I could also buy Wheel of Time, it seems...

Damn you BoB! (If this is true)

MeiLin Miranda's Lovers and Beloveds, book one of An Intimate History of the Greater Kingdom. It should be out in September, and I can't wait.

David Weber's next Honor Harrington novel - the one after Mission of Honor. I've put off reading the latter until the former is out, because with what I expect to happen in Mission, I want to read more than one book in a row to get out of the pile of excrement that seems bound to hit the rotary air mover...
