April 2011 - Release List

Here is my rather long list of books coming out in April 2011. I've included more Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror this month. Covers for anthologies are below. If there is something that I've missed, please leave a comment below. Also note that this list is always under revision. Please note that publication dates change. I try to keep this as accurate as possible.

I've been considering changes. Would it be more useful if I created separate lists for each sub-genre and included more information such as the cover and synopsis? I also include paperback releases of previously released hardcovers and reissues. Are those helpful or should I leave them out?

Anthology Covers:


  1. Please keep the paperback releases of previously release hardcover. To me Hardcovers are baby hippos and I don't buy them to often.

  2. Ruth, I agree. It's very rare for me to buy a hardcover. :)
