This week I’ve added 20 more books to the WWEnd DB to finish out 13 series. My thanks to member mkearl who told me about The Temeraire Series by Naomi Novik. There are now 5 books available (of a projected 9) beginning with 2007 Hugo nominated His Majesty’s Dragon. Napolean era with dragons! Thanks also to whargoul for pointing out the missing books from the Takeshi Kovacs Series. Broken Angels and Woken Furies have been added to 2003 PKD winner Altered Carbon. Don’t know how I missed the Kovacs series… Altered Carbon is one of my favorites!

On a side note, I’m running out of series to update. This is mostly a good thing. It means I’m almost done and I can move on to some other books. The bad news is that there are many series that I’m unaware of and I need your help. If you find any books that you know to be part of a series and we don’t have the series info listed please let me know. There is an email link in the series dropdown on the novel page that you can use to set us straight.

- The Repossession Mambo by Eric Garcia (Harper)
- The Devil’s Alphabet by Daryl Gregory (Del Rey)

First prize and any special citations will be announced on Friday, April 2, 2010 at Norwescon 33 at the Doubletree Seattle Airport Hotel, SeaTac, Washington.
Anderson, Cortes, Garcia and Swann are new authors to WWEnd. Anybody familiar with these authors or read any of the nominated books?
