The Clockwork Dynasty follows June on an international hunt-and-chase as she uncovers the secrets of ancient automatons, but at what peril? The Clockwork Dynasty is Daniel H. Wilson's masterful new novel. It seamlessly interweaves past and present, exploring a race of beings that live by different principles than humans, but ultimately value loyalty. Daniel H. Wilson's novel expertly draws on his robotics and science background, combining exquisitely drawn characters with visionary technology--and riveting action.
The Left Hand of Darkness is a landmark science fiction novel. Ursula LeGuin explores psychology, society, and human emotion, including sexual and gender roles, with a riveting story about interstellar political intrigue. Algis Budrys praised the novel as "a narrative so fully realized, so compellingly told, so masterfully executed".
The Punch Escrow is a new science fiction thriller about what happens when your technology accidentally clones you. The most powerful corporation in the world comes for you, and doesn't stop coming for you. Author Tal M. Klein lives in Detroit, and brings us his first novel sure to please fans of Ready Player One, Micheal Crichton, and Douglas Adams.
Kindred, while perhaps strictly speaking science fiction because it's a time-travel story is much, much more. Octavia Butler's unclassifiable tale of a modern black woman in the Antebellum South is sure to leave every reader shaken and filled with conflicting thoughts and emotions.
The Salt Line, brand new with a release date of September 5 this year, portrays a post-apocalyptic world with literary depth of character and emotion. By turns violent and pastoral, set in the near-south of North Carolina and Tennessee, Holly Goddard Jones debut thriller evokes Station Eleven and The Godfather, with women in all the major roles.
Chasing the Phoenix follows the far-future adventures of a human and a mutant dog who are globe-trotting thorugh a seris of post-whoops adventures. Michael Swanwick's satiric world building continues as our duo find a way into and out of war-torn China. A light read, but one with though-provoking subtexts.
