This one I am anticipating: The Annihilation Score (A Laundry Files Novel) will not be out for another week and a half, and I don’t think that I’m going luck out with this one and find a copy at a Borders bookstore that had unaccountably been put out early (which is what happened to me with another book in this series). Mostly because Borders doesn’t exist anymore, of course. Anyway, this is going to be the latest book in Charlie Stross’s Lovecraft-meets-spy-novels-meets-computer-math series, and it’s been a pretty nifty series so far. Hopefully, Charlie can keep a handle on his increasing tendency to conspiracy crank before the Great Old Ones come to finish the series by eating everybody’s souls – which is a selling point for this series, actually. It’s Lovecraftian cosmic horror. You know everybody’s gonna die. The author promised.
And so, adieu to The Last Wish: Introducing The Witcher. I REGRET NOTHING

This one is on my pre-order list.
What would summer beach season – not that I actually *go* to the beach, have you ever tried to get sand out of fur? – be without a visit to the Laundry?
Over at Charlie’s Diary he talks about The Annihilation Score and the background of Equoid. Lots of information and entertainment in the comments, too.
And as an oh-by-the-way, it seems that Case Nightmare Green isn’t all we have to worry about. The Annihilation Score reveals that there’s also Case Nightmare Blue, Case Nightmare Yellow, and Case Nightmare Red, plus a few other existential-grade catastrophes …
Fun times await!
