All Systems Red (2017)
(Murderbot Diaries, book 1)
Martha Wells
"Not only a fun, fast-paced space-thriller, but also a sharp, sometimes moving character study that will resonate with introverts even if they're not lethal AI machines."
thumb
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."
thumb
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."
thumb
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."
thumb
The Affair of the Mysterious Letter (2019)
Alexis Hall
"The Mysterious Affair of the Letter is a witty, enjoyable, extravagantly imagined slant on the Sherlock Holmes canon. Hall nails the Holmesian aesthetic in marvelously amusing ways while taking us on an extended romp through a wild range of alternate universes with a bizarre cast of characters. Don't miss this fun, queer, clever intrigue!"

A Song for a New Day (2019)
Sarah Pinsker
"A full-throated call to arms in the service of music, creation, and shared experience, A Song for a New Day resists both extremes and easy tropes, offering hope in the face of catastrophe through the engrossing stories of characters you'll want to spend more time with."
