David D Levine recommends
The Guns Above (2017)
(Signal Airship, book 1)
Robyn Bennis
"The Guns Above is a sharp, witty Ruritanian adventure full of flintlock rifles, plumed shakos, brass buttons... and airships!"
An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors (2017)
(Risen Kingdoms, book 1)
Curtis Craddock
"In a world shattered by sorcery, a princess without magic battles for peace, aided only by her wits and a drunken sot of a musketeer. A thrilling adventure full of palace intrigue, mysterious ancient mechanisms, and aerial sailing ships!"
The Freeze-Frame Revolution (2018)
Peter Watts
"In The Freeze-Frame Revolution, Peter Watts takes us millions of years into the future and hundreds of light-years away, where an isolated fragment of humanity must confront exotic physics, unfathomable entities, and the unforeseen consequences of their own technologies. But it is a profoundly human story about people, people not unlike us, under inescapable stress. A brilliant, thoughtful story bursting with radical ideas."
The Black God's Drums (2018)
P Djèlí Clark
"International intrigue involving the Confederacy, strange science, and hoodoo magic!"
Sea Change (2020)
Nancy Kress
"This taut, suspenseful near-future ecothriller combines a frighteningly plausible ecological/economic collapse scenario with genuine human emotion. A winner!"
The Last Watch (2021)
(Divide , book 1)
J S Dewes
"The Last Watch has it all! Risky orbital maneuvers! Knife fights with grotesque aliens! Mysterious ancient artifacts! Secret royalty! Tragic backstories! It's classic military space opera with a touch of the cosmic."
