What have you missed? Only a few more of my favourite, most anticipated new releases :D (This is not a dig, this is me happy to be able to talk up some BOOKS, plus, some of them you don't list 'cause YOU GET ARCs and have read them already XD).

First things first: isn't there a new Kate Elliott novel coming? Yes there is! After the second volume (which, sorry, I didn't love - sports and military ;( :/) I'm not hugely anticipating BURIED HEART but I still want to find out how it all ends (particularly since the ending of book 2 was actually very tense and I'm really invested in dynastic/mythological concerns + REVOLUTION).

And of course there's N.K. Jemisin's THE STONE SKY, which I guess needs no introductions? Pre-ordered as soon as it was pre-orderable, awaited eagerly.

Next on: PROVENANCE by Ann Leckie. In huge defiance of my own rules, I pre-ordered it on paper instead of as an e-copy, so you can probably guess my expectations are huge.

And then, best for last, there's a paper release of IN OTHER LANDS by Sarah Rees Brennan. I've followed SRB since her, um, pre-published days coughUnderwaterLightcough, and I've enjoyed almost all of her published work. In fact, the Lynburn Legacy trilogy is one of my favourite YA books ever. But when she published (for free, online) Turn of the Story, it felt like a whole new level of awesome for me. I loved it. It's just such a completely delightful, compelling, laugh-out-loud funny and yet at the same time, utterly feelings-causing read. It's a story about a prickly bisexual boy who goes to a magic school and I can't find words to praise it enough, that's how good it was. But I couldn't throw money at it, because it was published for free, online. But now it's getting re-released, with MORE MATERIAL, on paper that money can buy.

So, I pre-ordered it on paper and I'm waiting for it like a kid waits for their birthday.

I'm sure I'll remember some more once I go through my pre-orders list ;D

As to your very interesting list, I'm amused to see Maja Lunde had her book translated into Polish first (I think more than a year ago!) so I already have her book (though I haven't read it yet, because my partner did and said the ideas were better than the execution - though that may have been partly the translator's fault).

And of course, robot sex is my jam, so I'll look out for Autonomous!

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
