I find there are some authors where you just can't wait till the next volume comes out and it's hard to wait a whole year for it.

So who lights your fire so much that you get impatient for the next book?

I pre-ordered my copy of David Marusek's short story collection Getting to Know You months ago, and am foaming at the mouth in impatience for it to arrive.

I wish Nicholas Humphrey would hurry up with his new book. I actually emailed him a few weeks ago about it, and, to his credit, he emailed back saying he was struggling writing it...

Authors, eh? :shock:

I've heard good things about ' Black Man' the new Richard Morgan novel due out in May, and also Scott Lynch's sequel to The Lies of Locke Lamora, Red Seas under Red Skies which is due out in a few months time too.

Dawn, by Tim Lebbon. Sequel to the rather fabby Dusk. And not a trilogy (hurrah for someone who knows when to stop...overblown fantasy trilogies are too abundant).

And just to contradict myself ('cos I can), I read the first of Naomi Novik's Tereraire series - which has at least three volumes so far - and loved it. Tempted to get the second one at least. No idea how many she has planned, though.

I'm looking forward to Peter F Hamilton's The Dreaming Void and Neal Asher's Hilldiggers. They look like they'll be out around the same time so plenty of reading to look forward to. Also waiting for the the last Harry Potter book....

I was thinking about Iain M. Banks' new 'Culture' novel Matter, and/or Alastair Reynolds' House Of Suns (out in April)... but - reportedly - they're 500+ pages each, so over my usual reading limit.
:(

Most keen on Ken MacLeod's The Night Sessions 8)
but that's not due until early Aug!

I'm also waiting for Yan Tan Tethera by David Herter, a sequel to his Ceres Storm of 2000. No word on when it's due yet, though.

And John Varley has a new novel set in, I think, the Eight Worlds out in early 2008 - RollingThunder.

In March I was waiting for Black Man and Red Sea Under Red Skies, I've read them both now and enjoyed the two of them (also read Dreaming Void & Hilldiggers, both excellent) Now I'm waiting for Joe Abercrombie's third instalment of his First Law Trilogy, Last Arguement Of Kings which is due out in March. Joe's first two novels in this storyline have been little gems, well worth a read.

I'm really looking forward to the book that someone described to me recently. Unfortunately, neither he or I know what it's called or who the author is! Can anyone help?

<<Did you ever read that famous book about a guy with perfect memory. He goes mad by the end of the book, unable to free himself from the memory of every wrinkle on every face of every person he ever met and more. (this is not a joke, but it will sound like one) - I really can't remember the name of the book or the author.>>

I'm really looking forward to reading my own. In hardback. It might be a while before this happens.

That sounds like 'Funes The Memorious' by Jorge Luis Borges.

Thanks Steve. A number of people have made the same suggestion and I've put that to the guy who made the original comment, but he's on holiday and will get back to me later on.
