The Killing Moon by N. K. Jemisin

World building, in the hands of N. K. Jemisin, is an art that creates something so incredibly fresh and new and yet so familiar and telling. The ancient city-state of Gujaareh is so real you can taste the spices; Jemisin’s characters are so vivid you can smell their perfume; and her writing is so beautiful you’ll gladly surrender to her magic. Deftly working both on political and supernatural angles, this is an excellent start to a promising series.

The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfus

Re-enter the world of Kvothe, the Chandrian, Denna, the University…and become lost in all there still is in this world to discover. Four years since The Name of the Wind, fans will find Patrick Rothfuss delivers on his promise–with the trick of even more tantalizing hints of the story still to come. Now in paperback, there’s no reason not to explore the Kingkiller Chronicles—unless you can’t stand the mystery, still waiting for its conclusion.

Selected Stories by Fritz Leiber

Holy smokes of Lankhmar, Fafhrd! These are stories to die for. If you thought the Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser stories were the only great things Leiber ever wrote then you have another read coming. He pretty much invented urban horror and was ripping the advertising industry a new larynx way before Adbusters. Plus an enlightening intro by Neil Gaiman.

It's Superman by Tom de Haven

More than anything this is a portrait of the duality in life...the transition from adolescence to adulthood...big city bustle vs. small town charm...finding the thin line when the ends justify the means...and of course, the eternal struggle between good and evil. Lex would be nothing without Clark, and vice versa. I loved this retelling of a familiar story.

The Gunslinger by Stephen King

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." So begins my favorite King work, a 7 volume journey that will draw the reader across time, parallel worlds, New York, and Mid-World in a wake of blood and bullets. With inspirations from Arthurian legend, Tolkien, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, this series showcases King's masterful storytelling ability.

We by Yevgeny Zamyatin

Have you read an enjoyed A Brave New World or 1984 ? Do you love wacky dystopian societies that are just creepy enough to make you uncomfortable? Zamyatin did them first, and in my opinion, best. What is freedom? What is truth? And does love ensnare us, or free us as individuals? These are just a few of the questions asked here, you’re in for a heck of a ride.
