SciFi November: A Preview

Hard to believe October is almost over! November is right around the corner--only a few days away, in fact--and the blogosphere will be lighting up with all things sci-fi. This year, Sci-Fi November 2014 is being hosted by Rinn Reads and Oh, The Books!, with over 80 bloggers participating. You can find the full list of blogs and posts at the Information Hub on either of the links above. If you're on Twitter, you'll want to follow along with the official account, @SciFiMonth, and the hashtag #RRSciFiMonth  on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc.

SciFi November kicks off, appropriately enough, Nov. 1, so, expect my first post then. I'll kind of be winging it for the rest of the month after that initial weekend, but I will definitely have reviews coming your way. I'm hoping this event will even help me winnow my way through the pile of NetGalley ARCs I've accumulated these past few months, along with an exciting new anthology, The Telepath Chronicles, which I recently received from one of the contributing authors, Therin Knite.

Here's a look at some of the other titles I'm hoping to get to throughout November:

There are, of course, plenty of others in my digital to-read pile, but I suspect these will be the first batch. Plenty of other reads are on tap should I have the time, including a couple Peter Watts books, Steven Erikson's Willful Child, Trey Dowell's The Protectors, and The Three-Body Problem, the American debut of acclaimed Chinese science fiction author, Cixin Liu.

And, if there's any other reviewers out there reading this, feel free to request a copy of my sci-fi thriller debut, Convergence. Get the skinny on this title here, and if sounds like something you'd enjoy, drop me a line using this contact form. Be sure to let me know if there's a preferred digital format (sorry, no physical versions available for review at this time).
