What I'm Excited About: Okay, what I'm really excited about this month are the Star League series because... (drumroll) IT'S ME! That's right, I also go by the name H.J. Harper, and since these are my first books, I hope you can allow me a little glowing pride.
Ahem, favouritism aside, there are a lot of great titles out this month, but in particular I'm looking forward to The Damned, Scream Street 11, Undead Ed, Zombie Chasers and Long Lankin.
