I mentioned a couple of posts back that I'm having trouble finding books that will hold my attention. Did a little research to see what various authors I read have in the offing for summer and fall. July seems to be the big month with Robert Crais's new Elvis Cole novel, Perfect Night, hitting the shelves on July 1st. I'll be interested in seeing how Crais follows up the phenomenal The Watchman. July 3rd marks the publication of Resolution, the sequel to Robert B. Parker's western Appaloosa, which turned out to be one of my favorite Parker books. Looks like Parker's next Spenser novel is due sometime in October, but he's been so hit or miss with Spenser lately that I don't get as worked up about those as I used to. Nothing on the radar from Andrew Vachss.
Fantasy-wise things look bleak. No series I'm waiting on or authors I'm looking forward to. Just have to keep checking the bookstores for new writers I guess. There should be another volume of the short stories of Clark Ashton Smith fairly soon and the third and final volume of the Letters of Robert E. Howard is out there somewhere.
Not exactly a flood of books but at least a few to look forward to.
