"Waiting On" Wednesday: Unwritten books

First off, i know authors don't write at my pleasure. Ideas come, or don't come, real life and other projects intervene. I'm just saying, since there are books i've waited for, and books i've WAITED FOR, here are some of that latter category.

The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman- well, Once Upon a Time in the North came out in 2008 but this is not a prequel to His Dark Materials. This book is a sequel to The Amber Spyglass, which came out in 2000, taking place when Lyra is about 16. websites say it is "as yet unwritten" and "slated for late 2009 release" so who knows.

A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin- I think this is the worst! I only say that because when book 4 came out in 2005 it included info about how book 4 was too long and was being split into two. there have been 2 different release dates on Amazon that have already passed by. Still, we've got a "possible" release of fall 2009.

Abarat: Absolute Midnight by Clive Barker- The third in the Abarat series. Second book came out in 2004. one website says this will be out in winter 2009, which i guess means end of 2009.

Handling the Undead by John Ajvide Lindqvist- Kind of a weird one. The author wrote Let The Right One In in Sweden, which became a great movie. so the book got translated and released in the US. This other book is out in a British and Australian edition but not in the US and no release date is scheduled. I could bite the bullet and pay for international shipping and just order it off Amazon UK but i just haven't yet.

That's what i've got...anything you've been waiting for?

  2. I want more books in the Piers Anthony MODE series. He kind of gave up on that one.
