How Long ’til Black Future Month?: Stories by N. K. Jemisin
I was not lucky enough to get my hands on this speculative fiction collection before it came out, but I had to bring it to your attention, because it’s freaking N.K. JEMISIN, winner of three Hugo awards THREE years in a row! It’s at the top of my to-buy list for sure.
Backlist bump: The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
The Razor by J. Barton Mitchell
An action-packed science fiction adventure about an inmate on a hard labor prison planet, who must rely on some of the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals after the prisoners are abandoned by their guards and left to die. Think The Martian meets The Shawshank Redemption.
Backlist bump: Lightless by C.A. Higgins
The Museum of Modern Love by Heather Rose
Based around a real exhibit by performance artist Marina Abramović, this thought-provoking novel is about a fictional character named Arky. Down on his luck and aimless in his life, things change when Arky encounters Abramović’s performance art at the museum and realizes what he need to do with his own life.
Backlist bump: The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even by Chris F. Westbury
That’s it for me today – time to get back to reading!
