2008 Releases

I’m not absolutely certain that my list of fiction titles by LDS authors published in 2008 is complete. If you find that I have missed some, please e-mail the information to me and I will update the list and the LDS Fiction site.

But assuming the list is complete, here’s a run-down of the numbers. Pretty impressive, I think.
