Three Forthcoming Fantasies to Foam Over

WordPress ate the first version of this post. It’s never done that before, and when I say ate, I mean mercilessly devoured, leaving no drafts whatsoever, only the title and tags, like little scraps of bone. So, here they are again: three forthcoming novels I’m watching for.
The Wind Through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel
The Wind through the Keyhole by Stephen King, out April 24
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…..*head asplodes*…. ahem, sorry. This is a new Dark Tower story set in long tall and ugly’s youth. The scuttlebutt is something about Cuthbert and werewolves? Whatever, I’M IN.
The Order of the Scales: The Memory of Flames, Book III
The Order of the Scales, by Stephen Deas out February 7.
Intrigue, betrayals, dragons. The Memory of Flame trilogy comes packed with all the good stuff, and if you haven’t read the first two books, well you’ve got a month to catch up!

The Scar
The Scar by Sergey and Marina Dyachenko, out February 28.

Amazon saith: “Plotted with the sureness of Robin Hobb and colored with the haunting and ominous imagination of Michael Moorcock, The Scar tells a story that cannot be forgotten.” The Dyachenkos have written quite a few books, and garnered a ton of awards for them. The Scar is the first of their novels to be translated from Russian to English. They’ve got the first chapter here on their website. It’s gonna be goooood, guys.
