Title: Scifi and fantasy books for 2012 by Jessica Martin
Post by: andyw1691 on February 20, 2012, 04:48:09 PM
I was reading the article on www.sfcrowsnest.com about the best up coming Scifi and fantasy books for 2012 posted by Jessica Martin.

I was somewhat surprised that of the 32 books that were listed only 5 were tagged as SciFi. Is that a true reflection on the market for science fiction novels or does it reflect the personal choice of Jessica? I should point out that this is no way intended as a criticism of the article or Jessica's reading taste. As I mostly read science fiction I'm somewhat concerned that it might be a market segment that is rapidly dwindling.

On the other hand, I'm looking forward to the next novels in the Beyond Armageddon series by Anthony Decosmo and the Tribes of Hakahein series by Scott J Robinson. These don't get a mention in the article but are due out very soon. 2012 might not be a completely barren year for science fiction after all.  :)
