Science Fiction 7/1/2011-7/6/2011

These are the Science Fiction ebooks books released on Kindle between 7/1/2011 and 7/6/2011. In addition to the books published during this time, I'm playing catch-up and picking up some books that are listed with an earlier release date, but were not published on that release date.

For a general introduction and statement about why this blog exists see About the New Ebook Release Blog.

The book lists is divided into two portions, the books that are published by an agency publisher (which generally means they are of more interest) or which I personally found interesting, and those which are not.

The second list will contain some very interesting books on average, but will also have a much larger number of books to look through. For a more detailed discussion of this distinction see Agency Books

Below are some books that I found interesting during this timeperiod. I'm sure that there are other interesting books, I encourage people to point out good books in the comments.

Recomended Releases
The Pandahem Cycle I [The Saga of Dray Prescot ebook omnibus #8]Alan Burt AkersI liked the Dray Prescot books, I though they were one of the better 'John Carter' derived series, and I actually like them better than the Burroughs series. I wouldn't start here, but $9.99 for 4 books is a good price.
Naked City: Tales of Urban FantasyEllen DatlowA collection of Urban Fantasy stories by some very good Urban Fantasy writers.
7th SigmaSteven GouldI've read previews of this book, and this looks like a very good western/science fiction story. Steven Gould is talented, and his world looks to be very intereresting.
The Time Traders: A Science Fiction NovelAndre NortonOne of my favorite Andre Norton books, I suspect its public domain however.
Rule 34Charles StrossCharles Stross is one of the best science fiction writers today.
