Great thread! :D I'm looking forward to a lot of the above, especially the Ben Aaronovitch and Neil Gaiman ones.

The big release in the next month is Quarry By Iain Banks. Possibly his last book with his health and the publication has been brought forward because of this.

I really liked his last book, Stonemouth so I'm looking forward to it for non morbid reasons.but the publicity and all that are going to make this a massive seller.

Seemingly the cancer bit is coincidence.

Kit doesn't know who his mother is. What he does know, however, is that his father, Guy, is dying of cancer. Feeling his death is imminent, Guy gathers around him his oldest friends - or at least the friends with the most to lose by his death. Paul - the rising star in the Labour party who dreads the day a tape they all made at university might come to light; Alison and Robbie, corporate bunnies whose relationship is daily more fractious; Pris and Haze, once an item, now estranged, and finally Hol - friend, mentor, former lover and the only one who seemed to care. But what will happen to Kit when Guy is gone? And why isn't Kit's mother in the picture? As the friends reunite for Guy's last days, old jealousies, affairs and lies come to light as Kit watches on.

The Mirror and the LIght, the third in Hilary Mantel's trilogy about Thomas Cromwell.
Can't change the historical facts but it's been a stonking good read so far.

Stroud, Jonathan: Lockwood & Co (#1) - new YA series.
US release date 16th - 29th September 2013 (Aug 29 in UK)
Only young people can perceive (see/hear/whatever their talent is) the ghosts and other monsters haunting England and especially London by night. They fight them with swords.
Movie already being planned.
I liked Stroud's Bartimaeus series and this new series looks good.
