Our Quarterly Forthcoming Book issues (March, June, September, and December) usually sell out, and are used by librarians, bookstores, publishers, and readers to keep abreast of forthcoming titles. Each contains publishing schedules from the major genre publishers – big houses to small presses – for the next nine months.
Our February issue summarizes the previous year, and includes a highly regarded annual Recommended Reading List. The August issue has the Locus Awards, voted on by our readers from the best of the previous year. The October and November issues cover the World SF Convention and are constant back issue favorites. All issues have a list of the new books that month, a list of recommended books and bestsellers, and interviews with leading authors.
