A Stranger in the Citadel (2023)
Tobias S Buckell
"Buckell's writing always satisfies, and A Stranger in the Citadel brings it: tense, explosive oh-my-god-what-will-they-do-now action; appealing characters you care about, even when you deplore what they do; rich, surprising worldbuilding; a fascinating story of words and the people who guard them. Gotta love hero librarians, especially in times like these. Gotta love clever metatextual references. Gotta love the youth-dem determined to fix the world, naivete be damned."

The Freeze-Frame Revolution (2018)
Peter Watts
"Watts displays a gleefully macabre inventiveness combined with scientific rigour."

Ancient, Ancient (2012)
Kiini Ibura Salaam
"...fierce, gorgeous stories that...leave you breathless with their beauty."
