G Willow Wilson recommends
Every Rising Sun (2023)
Jamila Ahmed
"Richly imagined and sumptuously told . . . Ahmed deftly interweaves history and myth to create a world that is as compelling as it is magical. Every chapter leaves you eager to sit at Shaherazade's feet once more."
Secret Identity (2022)
Alex Segura
"Taut, fast-paced and wildly entertaining, Secret Identity merges classic noir with the three-color world of superhero comics in a way that will delight fans of both."
