Robin Sloan recommends
Woman No. 17 (2017)
Edan Lepucki
"Edan Lepucki tells her tale with preternatural clarity and total believability."
Spoonbenders (2017)
Daryl Gregory
"Spoonbenders is X-Files meets The Sopranos with a real, roaring heart."
The Ready-Made Thief (2017)
Augustus Rose
"Unexpected, categorization, unputdownable."
Autonomous (2017)
Annalee Newitz
"Annalee Newitz has conjured the rarest, most exciting thing: a future that's truly new ... a terrific novel and a tremendous vision."
Convenience Store Woman (2018)
Sayaka Murata
"This is a story about what’s normal and not, a drama played on a stage so violently plain it becomes as vivid and surprising as an alien planet. I loved Convenience Store Woman: its brevity, its details, its opinions about life."
The City in the Middle of the Night (2019)
Charlie Jane Anders
"Like a classic from another timeline… This book has notes of Ursula K. Le Guin and Philip Pullman."
