I mentioned earlier that Vernor Vinge has a new book out in October. Here are a few more:
Robert Charles Wilson’s _Vortex_ (July). I really liked _Spin_, and _Axis_ hopefully suffered from an “unsatisfying book in the middle” effect (though it was still pretty good).
Charles Stross’ _Rule 34_ (July).
Steven Gould’s _7th Sigma_ (July). If you haven’t read _Jumper_ or _Wildside_, go do that.
Neal Stephenon’s _Readme_ (September). I really liked _Zodiac_, _Snow Crash_ and _The Diamond Age_, but didn’t get through his bug-crushing System of the World trilogy. I’d like to see another _Anathem_, but I’d be happy if it was as good as _The Cobweb_.
Jay Lake’s _Endurance (Nov). Follow-on to the quite excellent fantasy _Green_.
I’m sure there’s more. And to think that in January I was saying, “Man, it’s going to be another dry year for books.”
