Это Варли так над Хайнлайном прикалывается? :)

А поскольку "Азбука" у нас увлекается антологиями, то эта прямо напрашивается на издание у нас:

Historical fantasy novel, a dark-magical secret history retelling of the Western legend about Wyatt Earp and his brothers in Tombstone, Arizona, in 1881.

Durham, David Anthony : Acacia
(Doubleday 978-0-385-50606-9, $26.95, 576pp, hardcover, June 2007)
Fantasy novel, first book in the "War with the Mein" trilogy, about the four children of the assassinated ruler of Acacia, an idyllic island empire founded on drug trafficking and slave trade, who vow to avenge their father's death.

Вот думаю, Островную империю здесь называют Акакией или Акацией? ;)

UPD. Добрый [livejournal.com profile] jaerraeth предложил "Ацацию" :)

Кстати, на "Локусе" выложили книжные планы на июнь 2007 - март 2008. Интересно, что у нас переведут в итоге.

Может оказаться интересным:
Malmont, Paul: The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril
Historical adventure novel, the author's first novel, with fantasy elements about pulp writers Walter Gibson and Lester Dent, creators of The Shadow and Doc Savage, and they investigate parallel mysteries that involve H.P. Lovecraft, L. Ron Hubbard, Louis L'Amour, and Orson Welles.
Цитата: "Gary K. Wolfe reviews the book in the June issue of Locus Magazine, saying the book "works on one level as a trivia fest for pulp fans and on another as an effort to re-create, with a fair amount of comic and ironic overtones, the outlandish pacing and overbaked prose of the pulps themselves" and concludes that the book "is exhilarating, and for those who've never heard of Dent or Gibson, it's a fair approximation of what all the fuss was about."

Duncan, Dave: Children of Chaos
Fantasy novel, first of a duology, set on a dodecahedral world and concerning four children taken as hostages in a war who are reunited years later.
Дилогия называется The Dodec Books. Название второго романа - Mother of Lies.
Отрывок - на сайте автора.
Цитата: "Faren Miller reviews the book in the June issue of Locus Magazine, saying that Duncan "packs a remarkable amount of multi-culturalism, interesting characters, and unusual (sometimes brutal) magic into less than 400 pages."

А вот это просто забавно:
