Scott Lynch's Red Seas Under Red Skies will be available in the UK from 21 June onwards. Full review here. The US release is now scheduled for 31 July, although unconfirmed rumours of a possible one-week delay to 7 August are circulating. In addition, the UK mass-market paperback of The Lies of Locke Lamora has been reissued with a new cover. On his website, Scott Lynch has confirmed the titles for the five remaining books in the sequence: The Republic of Thieves (due summer 2008), The Thorn of Emberlain, The Ministry of Necessity, The Mage and the Master Spy and Inherit the Night. He has also placed very short and cryptic plot summaries on the site.

Although it's not SF (Iain M. Banks references aside), Hot Fuzz, from the makers of the excellent sitcom Spaced and the zombi rom-com Shaun of the Dead, is now available on Region 2 DVD and I recommend it thoroughly.

I am currently re-reading Kate Elliott's Crown of Stars series (review to follow) and will try to get hold of Ian Cameron Esslemont's Night of Knives and Paul Kearney's This Forsaken Earth for review in the coming weeks.
