The Cusanus Game by Wolfgang Jeschke (Tor Books, 544 pages, October 15)
"In the tradition of Stanislaw Lem and Philip K. Dick, a novel of future
disaster in Europe by the grand master of German science fiction." Mutating human DNA, extinctions, time travel- this book looks sooooooo gooooood...
The Hobbit: Illustrated Edition by J. R. R. Tolkein, Illustrated by Jemima Catlin (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 384 pages, October 1)
A gift edition of Tolkien's tale about a hobbit and Middle Earth. I'm loving the illustrations so far...
The Onion Book of Knowledge: A Definitive Encyclopaedia of Existing Information by The Onion (Little, Brown and Company, 256 pages, October 29)
