The November Indie Next List [PDF] is Out, and Dennis Lehane tops it.
Moonlight Mile, Dennis Lehane
William Morrow (November 2, 2010)
List price: $26.99 (Hardcover)
Signed editions can be gotten for less than $50 (some at or around the cover price) on AbeBooks.com. Considering his other novels (Mystic River, 2001; Shutter Island, 2003; The Given Day, 2008) list for over $150 (signed) - it's probably not a bad investment.
Nemesis, Philip Roth
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (October 5, 2010)
List price: $26.00 (Hardcover)
Signed first editions of this book are already listing for $150 - $220 on Abebooks.com. Unsigned first editions are listing for up to $45 only a month after the book was released.
Mr. Toppit, Charles Elton
Viking Penguin (London: 2009) - True First
Other Press, (U.S.: 2010) - paperback "reprint edition"
Elton's debut novel has gotten some good reviews - including a starred review from Publisher's Weekly. The U.K. edition is the true first, released last year, and can be found for between $40 and $65 (signed) at Abebooks.com, and from $13 (unsigned) at Alibris.com.
