Malka Older recommends
Bandwidth (2018)
(Analog , book 1)
Eliot Peper
"A smart techno-thriller that plays out the near future of data immersion, the digital divide, and climate change with mind-expanding effectiveness."
A Memory Called Empire (2019)
(Teixcalaan, book 1)
Arkady Martine
"A taut murder mystery entwined with questions of technological ethics, A Memory Called Empire is also an evocative depiction of foreignness. Martine creates an elaborate and appealing culture against which to play out this story of political intrigue, assimilation, and resistance. Daring, beautiful, immersive, and often profound."
Miranda in Milan (2019)
Katharine Duckett
"Duckett's novella expands the world of Shakespeare's tale in wonderful ways. Part Gothic, part romance, part mystery, and perhaps most of all a novella about working one's way out of the assumptions of a sheltered life, Miranda in Milan is a delight."
