Escape Velocity (2024)
Victor Manibo
"Searing social commentary, expert worldbuilding, and unforgettable characters . . . Victor Manibo remains one of the most exciting new voices working in fiction today."
thumb
Big Time (2024)
Ben H Winters
"Big Time is a propulsive mix of big ideas, expert plotting, and deep character work - intertwined in the kind of way that only Ben Winters can do. This is a 'clear your calendar first' kind of book."
thumb
Baby X (2024)
Kira Peikoff
"What makes Baby X so gripping and scary is how plausible the whole thing feels. Peikoff has crafted a thoughtful, realistic future that explores bodily autonomy and the pitfalls of scientific advancement, nestled within a ripping thriller with breakneck twists, and carried by an incredible cast of characters."
