It’s been a very bad year computer-wise, and I’m hoping I’ve seen the backside of it. It’s one reason why there’s such a mish-mash of dates ranging from August to December.

Admittedly, I’m only telling you about upcoming publications from series I’ve already read. Fortunately, I’ve read a lot!

Consider tweeting this “Upcoming Publications” notice to friends who might be interested.
