Kai Ashante Wilson
"It's great to see a new story that shows that fantasy still has some really fascinating places to go."
River of Teeth (2017)
(River of Teeth, book 1)
Sarah Gailey
"This hippopotamus epic is just as preposterously fun as you could possibly have hoped but it's also a brave, clever alternate history. River of Teeth packs one hell of a gold-plated bite."
Spoonbenders (2017)
Daryl Gregory
"A joyfully weird book about psychics and con artists, and the marvels that result from the intermarriage of the two."
The Tree (2018)
(Wrath & Athenaeum, book 2)
