Biography & autobiography

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.


Walkaway

It's all about the deep, disturbing, recognizable weirdness of the future that must come from the present we have already made for ourselves, trying to figure out what went wrong and what comes next.


Off Rock

It's a romp, a down-and-dirty, blue-collar tale of crime and consequence, but it's thin.


Borne

This coming-of-age story signals that eco-fiction has come of age as well: wilder, more reckless and more breathtaking than previously thought, a wager and a promise that what emerges from the 21st century will be as good as any from the 20th, or the 19th.


Void Star

“Void Star” treats the best aspects of cyberpunk with respect and imagination and adds its own fresh speculations about AIs and other digital marvels. Mason is clearly a versatile talent, and his second novel may be a harbinger of even more ambitious work to come.


Void Star

Void Star’s larger drawback is that, as its storylines converge in virtual spaces, everything begins to seem ethereally confusing and abstract.


Waking Gods: Book 2 of The Themis Files

A sequel that just may be better than the first book! I don’t know how in the world I am going to be able to wait for the next one in the series!


Borne

I instantly fell in love with Borne, and also Borne the character, and I’ve no doubt in my mind you will as well.
This is a must-read.


Borne
Kirkus Reviews : Borne (April 24, 2017)

Superb: a protagonist and a tale sure to please fans of smart, literate fantasy and science fiction.


Avengers of the Moon

Had Steele spent as much effort deepening the characters as he does explaining a plasma gun, Captain Future might have a future; as is, this effort flounders in the past.


The Wanderers

The author pulls the reader into the minds of these professionals so deftly that I felt like I was reading their autobiographies.


Luna: Wolf Moon

Because McDonald has made a world that is ruthless in its consistency and living, breathing reality, and then made characters who are not just living in it, but wholly and fully of it.


The Stars Are Legion

This is the Kameron Hurley novel I had truly been waiting for: about a brutal, broken world that is against all odds, fixable. Right now, this is the most powerful thing I can think of.


The Wanderers

I read to escape, and there was just enough action to make me okay with the copious amounts of introspection within The Wanderers.


Gilded Cage

Gilded Cage has a decent number of answers for an opening novel, but there are plenty of questions that remain.


Nova

Nova is an excellent start to a series. It's the kind of book that has huge cross over potential - a teen narrator in an adult SF tale that definitely appeals to both audiences.
