The Daughters' War

The Daughters' War

Christopher Buehlman

$28.99 $26.96

Buehlman has a real gift for writing complicated, endearing characters trying to do their best in a complicated, fully lived-in world. I can’t wait for his next book.

Ghostroots: Stories

Ghostroots: Stories

'Pemi Aguda

$26.99 $25.10

A marvelously unsettling collection where the everyday strangeness of life and the uncanny rub up against each other

The Sleepwalkers

The Sleepwalkers

Scarlett Thomas

$27.99 $26.03

A fabulously sly and slippery tale of a honeymoon that goes from bad to worse to even worse yet. Vivid, scalpel-sharp, and impossible to put down.

The Only Ones

The Only Ones

Carola Dibbell

$18.95 $17.62

A bracing, tough minded, farsighted novel about bravery and endurance, motherhood and the way life goes on even after the world ends. Every sentence pierces.

Craft: Stories I Wrote for the Devil

Craft: Stories I Wrote for the Devil

Ananda Lima

$24.99 $23.24

My only problem with this book is the title, and that’s because I love it so much. Ananda Lima didn’t write these stories for the Devil, she wrote them for me! An absolutely thrilling reminder that short stories can be the best kind of magic, conjuring up not only the devil, but real emotion, real surprise, real strangeness.

The Night Parade: A Speculative Memoir

The Night Parade: A Speculative Memoir

Jami Nakamura Lin

$30.00 $27.90

A gorgeous invocation of the magic-haunted spaces between lived experience and folkloric traditions, between the living and the dead, between memory and story. I loved The Night Parade.

Jewel Box: Stories

Jewel Box: Stories

E. Lily Yu

$27.00 $25.11

Like Oscar Wilde or Ray Bradbury, E. Lily Yu writes the kind of delicious short stories that come with a sting in the tail. Utterly beguiling

Pay as You Go

Pay as You Go

Eskor David Johnson

$28.00 $26.04

Pay As You Go is an exuberant, maximalist delight.

Looking Glass Sound

Looking Glass Sound

Catriona Ward

$27.99 $26.03

If you love the novels of Shirley Jackson, Patricia Highsmith, and Tana French, here’s your next obsession.

Fever House

Fever House

Keith Rosson

$28.00 $26.04

What a time to be undead! Keith Rosson has written an epic nightmare of a book, the kind that will jolt you out of whatever reading rut you’ve fallen into.

Maddalena and the Dark

Maddalena and the Dark

Julia Fine

$28.99 $26.96

A sumptuous feast of a novel, rich and strange and heady. Julia Fine is an extraordinary writer.

This Is How You Lose the Time War

This Is How You Lose the Time War

Max Gladstone and Amal El-Mohtar

$16.99 $15.80

If Iain M. Banks and Gerard Manley Hopkins had ever been able to collaborate on a science fiction project, well, it wouldn’t be half as much fun as this novella. There is all the pleasure of a long series, and all the details of a much larger world, presented in miniature here.

Uranians: Stories

Uranians: Stories

Theodore McCombs

$25.00 $23.25

Exquisite, unsettling, richly felt stories, in which both tenderness and the possibility of estrangement open up doors to the fantastic and the surreal.

Ink Blood Sister Scribe

Ink Blood Sister Scribe

Emma Törzs

$30.00 $27.90

A twisty and thrilling fantasy in which both the magic and the characters have real complexity, real shadows. If, like me, you’re a fan of Holly Black and Leigh Bardugo, pick up this book at once.

The Beast You Are: Stories

The Beast You Are: Stories

Paul Tremblay

$30.00 $27.90

Inventive, entertaining, and guaranteed to trouble your sleep. I savored this collection – and I’m still thinking about the show-stopping tour-de-force novella in verse, ‘The Beast You Are.’ I’ve never read anything like it, but now I want more, more, more.

The Curator

The Curator

Owen King

$28.99 $26.96

The Curator feels a little like Owen King somehow brought a curiosity cabinet to life. There are terrors here, but also marvels and delights, and a set of the most interesting characters I’ve met in some time. Put The Curator on the same shelf as other classics of the uncanny and uncategorizable, like Susanna Clarke’s Piranesi and Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast. I loved it.

Drinking from Graveyard Wells: Stories

Drinking from Graveyard Wells: Stories

Yvette Lisa Ndlovu

$40.00 $37.20

A collection as assured, as generous, and as wide-ranging as Drinking from Graveyard Wells will always feel like the most profound and surprising gift. I loved these stories.

The Hero of This Book

The Hero of This Book

Elizabeth McCracken

$26.99 $25.10

Absolutely gorgeous, beautifully observed, autobiographical fiction.

The House of Rust

The House of Rust

Khadija Abdalla Bajaber

$16.00 $14.88

A novel stuffed to bursting with marvels and fairy-tale delights. Khadija Abdalla Bajaber casts a mighty spell.

The Strange Inheritance of Leah Fern

The Strange Inheritance of Leah Fern

Rita Zoey Chin

$17.99 $16.73

The Strange Inheritance of Leah Fern is a bittersweet and achingly tender coming of age novel. Like V. E. Schwab and Audrey Niffenegger, Rita Zoey Chin is an expert guide to that territory in which magic, loss, and possibility change not only the characters but the reader, too.

The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina

The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina

Zoraida Córdova

$17.00 $15.81

I fell hard for this book. The dynamic, powerful mixture of secrets, stories, and longing that bind families together is Zoraida Córdova’s narrative engine, but her ability to evoke landscape and the numinous make The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina feel like an invitation into an enchanted garden.

Valleyesque: Stories

Valleyesque: Stories

Fernando A. Flores

$16.00 $14.88

These are marvelously unpredictable stories, anchored by Fernando A. Flores’s deadpan prose and his surefooted navigation of those overlapping territories, the real and the fantastic, where so much of the best contemporary fiction now lives.

Sleepwalk

Sleepwalk

Dan Chaon

$27.99 $26.03

How to describe this excellent novel? Slapstick of the sinister might capture something of its peculiar, bighearted and epic scope, but Dan Chaon’s books are always hard to sum up. Anyway, I loved it.

Maria, Maria: & Other Stories

Maria, Maria: & Other Stories

Marytza K. Rubio

$24.95 $23.20

Loved this collection—gorgeous, formally inventive, playful, and full of strangeness.

These Prisoning Hills

These Prisoning Hills

Christopher Rowe

$15.99 $14.87

Christopher Rowe is one of the finest and most humane writers of science fiction working today. His territory lies within the ruptured space where technology, humanity, and the natural world intersect, and his subject matter is trauma and the possibility of restoration, which he addresses with both tenderness and clinical skill.
