Adam Sternbergh recommends
Dodgers (2016)
Bill Beverly
"The sentences will snare you, and the story keeps you hooked — a thrilling cross-country journey that takes on the poetry and resonance of myth."
Blackfish City (2018)
Sam J Miller
"Blackfish City is an exhilarating tour of a post-catastrophe future that’s both fantastical and eerily convincing. Imagine The Yiddish Policeman’s Union cross-bred with Snowcrash and you’ll get an inkling of the imaginative horsepower on display here."
Who Killed the Fonz? (2019)
James Boice
"James Boice has achieved a magic kind of alchemy, exhuming beloved characters from our collective consciousness and gifting them with a fate, a future, and poignant inner lives. Who Killed the Fonz? is the best kind of pop-culture hypothetical -- one that imagines, with heart, wit, and smarts, what happens when the Happy Days fade and real life begins."
