New Arrivals
compiled by Neil Walsh

New arrivals for this month are quite varied, with everything from Manga to historical fiction, science fiction to high fantasy, new works to reprinted classics.

I've been doing a lot of reading outside the genre lately, so I'll get back to my recommendations next month. (Books are listed alphabetically by author. Only books received are noted.)
