Alice Isn't Dead by Joseph Fink

If you’ve ever driven Highway 5 late at night, you know there is something ethereal about the long stretch of road when it is blanketed with stars. Joseph Fink evokes the same feeling in his newest novel, Alice Isn’t Dead. After the supposed death of her wife, Keisha—certain Alice is still alive—abandons her life to become a trucker and search for the missing Alice, and runs afoul of a sinister and horrifying organization. Strange and glorious, this book will leave you changed. - Ivy

Zero Sum Game by S.L. Huang

A fun, fast-paced action thriller featuring a snarky math superhero who has some serious character flaws. Cas Russell is good at math, so good that she intuitively performs vector calculus at lightning speed, allowing her to dodge both incoming fists and bullets. She’s a mercenary “retrieval expert” with ambiguous morals, available for hire in Los Angeles, and her latest job is proving to be much more challenging and dangerous than she anticipated. - Trey

Red Moon by Kim Stanley Robinson

Given Robinson’s pedigree, there was little doubt I would like this book. If you enjoy intrigue and action in the low gravity of our closest neighbor, Red Moon will draw you in. Despite the lightness of the setting, it pulls its weight. Similar to last year’s Artemis. - Ian

Abbott by Saladin Ahmed

Cigarette smoke and shadows tie together this graphic fantasy from acclaimed novelist Saladin Ahmed and artist Sami Kavela. Journalist Elena Abbott, armed with a camera and the truth, finds herself pitted not only against the injustice and police brutality of 1970’s Detroit, but also against a dark magic that is haunting her past and home. A winning cast and a noir story with a funky backbeat. - Jocelyn

How to Fracture a Fairy Tale by Jane Yolen

A delightful sampling of Yolen’s work, including thoughts from the writer herself on how to fracture your own tales. I love the way Yolen picks the stories apart to find the meat, the heart of the thing, and then weaves something extraordinary around that. Perfect for folk and faerie tale enthusiasts or anyone wanting to look at things a bit differently. - Jax

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green

Brilliant! Hank Green has written an engrossing debut novel with a fun, vibrant, emotionally powerful and completely non sequitur plot. In a New York crosswalk, protagonist April May’s discovery of giant, sentient, maybe even alien omnipotent robots completely upends her life, both professionally and romantically. Through the eyes of this young, queer antihero and her robots, we see humanity in its modern context: how people love, connect, and create belief in a media landscape that sometimes degrades humanity. - a.c.

Vita Nostra by Marina & Sergey Dyachenko

One part coming-of-age parable, one part psychological horror, this book combines dark fantasy with contemporary magical realism. Beautifully translated from its original Russian, Vita Nostra brilliantly explores the period in early adulthood in which we consider the price we’re willing to pay to discover our full potential and learn how we make ourselves vulnerable when we strive for outside approval. - Ilana

The Last Unicorn: The Lost Journey by Peter S. Beagle

Reading The Last Unicorn is like drinking a warm cup of cocoa on a rainy night, so it was lovely to read this wonderful first draft and see the origins of the book. So many things changed before the story became the book we know, but the writing in this early version is so entrancing it’s hard to believe this wasn’t the final adventure. There is so much to delight in, both in the familiar and the new. - Ivy
