New on Kindle: Catching Up March/April, Part 1: Tor/Forge

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these (because it’s an exhausting effort), but I really do need to keep an eye out for new books, and I’ve had a pleasant break.

The backlog is long, so I’m breaking these up roughly by publishing house and imprint.

So what has Tor/Forge (imprints of Macmillan) been up to?
