Best New Fiction is a monthly segment dedicated to highlighting the most interesting and noteworthy releases that will be published over the next thirty days.

Thus far, 2013 has been an excellent literary year for me.

With the cold, slow month of January behind us, it’s now time to properly turn our attention to the February 2013 releases that we feel deserve some notice. Below you’ll find a list of upcoming February releases that we couldn’t wait to tell you about. Prepare yourself, your to-read pile (and ours) is about to grow!
