The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi

John Scalzi wastes no time putting us into the shoes of Jamie Gray: a wholly relatable point-of-view schlub who trades our bleak, present day dystopia of gig economies, crushing rents, and corporate villainy for an equally lethal world of mountain-sized monsters, conspiracies, and callous corporate villainy. The Kaiju Preservation Society is the print equivalent of a big, fast-paced, sci-fi action movie with a genuinely fresh take on the kaiju genre (that’s Japanese giant monster movies for the uninitiated). —Aaron

Killing Gravity by Corey J. White

Corey J. White’s Killing Gravity draws from sci-fi inspirations as diverse as Aliens, Anne McCaffrey’s The Rowan and even a little Firefly while still managing to create a unique world all its own. Gender-fluid characters and a strong female protagonist make it relevant and timely while the tight-pacing is a welcome change for genre fans tired of 2000-page opuses that collapse under the weight of info dumps and world building. While this is the first entry in White’s The Void Witch Saga, this instalment is more invitation than commitment. - Aaron
