On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers
The next installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is set for May 2011 and the rights to Tim Powers' 1988 historical fantasy novel, On Stranger Tides (2006 reissue) [US] [UK] were bought in 2009. I'm not sure how closely the film will follow the book, but let's be honest, the cover is amazing enough to have me drooling already.
The Dragons of Babel by Michael Swanwick
I've had this on my wishlist for quite some time now and the itch to read about Dragons is coming back. I've yet to read anything by Michael Swanwick, but I hear he's quite the master. The Dragons of Babel (2009) [US] [UK] is one of his newer works.
Heroes Die by Matthew Stover
The only other novel I've read by Matthew Stover was Revenge of the Sith and I absolutely loved it, not to mention I've only ever read rave reviews of Heroes Die (1999) [US] [UK], Book one in Stover's Acts of Cain series. I don't see this going wrong.
Seeds of Earth by Michael Cobley
Michael at Only the Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy has convinced me with his review that went op yesterday. This is now on the gigantic, unstoppable, ever-consuming list and Seeds of Earth (2009 UK) [US] [UK] may be making it's way to the top.
That's my list and I'm sticking to it.
