You know what the worst part of solicitations is? Finding out that one of your favorite books is due to ship for another two months! I don't know if I can wait that long to read Cyclops again! I might just have to learn French and have it shipped over seas! Not really I couldn't afford that and so I'm very thankful to Archaia for releasing Cyclops here in the states, but that would be an awesome present! Here's another batch of releases this time from Archaia Press and a whole two months ahead. Of course most of this will probably ship in April, but then that ruins the dramatics at the beginning of the article. Beside my favoriteCyclops is the hardcover edition of Days Missing: Kestus which is another great book. Looking for other options? Keep reading then.
