An Unkindness of Ghosts

It is an antidote to poison. It is inoculation against pervasive, enduring disease. Like a vaccine, it is briefly painful, leaves a lingering soreness, but armors you from the inside out.


Provenance

Provenance lacks some of the depth that made that series so engrossing.


Provenance
Publishers Weekly : Provenance (September 26, 2017)

It’s primarily an optimistic coming-of-age story, and it stumbles on some false promises along the way.


Provenance

Provenance is a super great novel and a great example of optimist, fun Science Fiction.


Acadie

Acadie is a great story, showing that there’s more to this author than his well-known series.


Sea of Rust
Kirkus Reviews : Sea of Rust (September 05, 2017)

Innovative worldbuilding, a tight plot, and cinematic action sequences make for an exciting ride through a blasted landscape full of dying robots.


Tomorrow's Kin

Tomorrow’s Kin is a great alien-first-contact novel that has a pleasing amount of serious science to tell a surprisingly human story. Readers of Analog and Asimov’s Magazine will recognise its style and its quality.


When the English Fall: A Novel

“When the English Fall” is, slyly, a parable for climate change and for the horrifying threats it poses to the global order.


Bannerless

I found Bannerless to be great fun, just the thing I needed to help me get through a slump!


When the English Fall: A Novel

David Williams's debut examines the hearts of men at times of true testing: when disaster strikes and all seems lost. Some react with sorrow and violence, while others hold firm and strong in their beliefs. But no one remains immune to or untouched by the fear of uncertainty.


When the English Fall: A Novel

The bulk of the narrative...raises many important questions about modern life, community, and personal responsibility and compassion, making it a more than worthwhile addition to the rapidly growing genre of post-apocalyptic literature.


Armistice: The Hot War

Though there are a few historical missteps, readers who savor the patient accumulation of detail around each scenario will by now be thoroughly addicted.


Tropic of Kansas

It is, in this particular moment in history, frighteningly prescient. It is the nightly news with the volume turned up to 11.


Amatka

Amatka does not wrap up as conclusively as many readers may like, but then it's nowhere near being a conventional sci-fi novel.


Dear Cyborgs

A colorful meditation on friendship and creation nested within a fictional universe.


The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.

Though it’s no comic classic, The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. is big, roomy and enjoyable. The historical scenes are refreshingly unembarrassed by their hey-nonny-nonnyisms.


River of Teeth

River of Teeth is a wonderfully original debut, guaranteed to cast long, sinister shadows over beloved family board games for years to come.


New York 2140

“New York 2140” is a big, playful and thoroughly engrossing book, generous in spirit and very serious about the political issues it raises.


Radiate
Kirkus Reviews : Radiate (May 23, 2017)

This conclusion lacks the propulsive power of Lightless, but it opens up into a compelling emotional tale about two people trying to save each other from a disaster of their own making.


Entropy in Bloom: Stories

This collection of (mostly) previously published stories showcases the best of the worst of Jeremy Robert Johnson. And by worst, I mean most gut-churning and nightmare inducing. Everything from roided-out he-beasts to mind-altering meat sprouts.
