From the latest book in The Expanse saga to epic fantasy tales set in all manner of imaginative worlds, 2021 will be a great year for both fantasy and sci-fi fans.
One of my favorite things at the start of a New Year is jotting down all the upcoming book releases. There’s just something about reading descriptions of new books and finding new favorite authors that turns the nerd in me beyond reason.
2020 has been a pretty impressive year for science fiction and fantasy books, all things considered. Granted, many titles have been delayed or otherwise affected by the coronavirus, but it has also brought us epics like Rhythm of war by Brandon Sanderson, The fires of vengeance by Evan Winter, The city we have become by NK Jemisin and The problem with peace by Joe Abercrombie. It turns out that books are a perfect activity for this whole pandemic that we are all going through right now.
And the coming year is Stacked with exciting releases, whether it’s because some books were pushed back due to the pandemic or just because the calendar worked that way. Either way, 2021 is already shaping up to be a huge year for sci-fi and fantasy fans, and we’ve rounded up 15 of the most exciting new works to look forward to. From adventures of pragmatic warrior queens to epic intergalactic warfare, 2021 is shaping up to be a hell of a year for the books.
