Daryl Gregory recommends
The Circumference of the World (2023)
Lavie Tidhar
"Can we just all admit now that Lavie Tidhar's a genuis?"
Saturnalia (2022)
Stephanie Feldman
"Saturnalia is a tense, supernatural tour through a magic-bent, paganized Philadelphia -- that also manages to be heartfelt and beautifully written. I wolfed this down, and Feldman's talent left me spinning. Don't miss this."
The Silverberg Business (2022)
Robert Freeman Wexler
"Robert Freeman Wexler never fails to knock me out, and The Silverberg Business hits like a hurricane--there's strangeness and beauty on every page. The novel is that rare thing, a weird western that's truly weird, set in a Texas that's simultaneously gritty, violent, and real, yet soaked in myth. Don't miss this."
Unity (2021)
Elly Bangs
"Unity is a killer debut by a thrilling new writer. Trust me, you're all going to be hearing a lot about Elly Bangs and this gleaming and gritty world she's created. And cyberpunk fans? Put down the game controller and read this now. This is the real stuff."
Sea Change (2020)
Nancy Kress
"Nobody is better at destroying the world?see one of my favorite novellas, the multi-award-winning After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall?but here Nancy Kress dives into the science of genetically modified plants and shows us how we just may need them to save the planet. And this brilliant, thoughtful story is also a page-turner! I don’t know about you, but a thriller about a fear-mongering, anti-science government and the smart, brave people resisting it was exactly the story I needed right now."
Longer (2019)
Michael Blumlein
"This is why i read science fiction."
