  2. Hollow Kingdom

    “This is the zombie apocalypse like you’ve never seen it before! Things go sideways when S.T. the crow’s human, Big Jim, loses an eyeball. Jim’s worsening condition propels S.T. to leave the safety of domestic life, along with the simple, slobbering bloodhound, Dennis. Together they roam the ruins of Seattle, searching for purpose in this new, Cheeto-less world. While Hollow Kingdom mostly follows the foul-mouthed, human-loving crow, Buxton also takes the occasional detour to see how other animals are coping around the world. Not only is our corvid companion a profane delight, she also manages to effortlessly capture the aloof arrogance of a cat, the wise cadence of an elephant, and even the eternal serenity of trees. Hilarious and at times surprisingly poignant, Hollow Kingdom is a must-read for anyone with a sense of humor as black as a crow’s wing.”

  3. Wanderers

    “Wanderers is the best science fiction book I have ever read.Wonderfully performed by the readers! A young girl walks out of her home for no reason, then a young man, a young mother, a businessman, soon the group has grown to hundreds. Why are these people who respond to nothing and can be stopped by nothing walking? Where are they going? Will everyone become of "sleepwalker"? Are they dangerous? In the chaos of racial, political and environmental conflict speculation and blame grows. Who will become a sheep, a shepherd, a wolf? It has all the moral ambiguity that leads you to question the world around you. The story is loaded with religious, environmental, race and political themes.You will not want to put this book down, there is suspense on every page! I already want to read it again!”

  4. By Becky Chambers / Narrated by Rachel Dulude

    A Closed and Common Orbit

    “Becky Chambers has built a dazzling and expansive science fiction universe and seems determined to introduce readers to every corner. The AI Sidra and young Jane provide swapping viewpoints between a bustling, multi-species city sprawling over a moon and a sterile factory among miles and miles of junkyard on a planet with extremely skewed priorities. Sidra's journey to understand who and what she really only becomes more poignant as you follow Jane struggle to escape the only home, the only planet, she has ever known. In the end, despite the fantastic setting and characters, Chambers manages to deliver a striking message about consciousness, survival, and family.”

  5. The Deep

    “Solomon is perfectly suited to expand the concept of a civilization of merfolk whose origins were born in the violence of pregnant African women sent to the depths from the vessels of white slave traders. The Deep focuses on Yetu, whose role as historian is to be individually burdened with six centuries of memories of all the wajinru (merfolk), and the consequences when she abdicates her responsibility. With shades of Hans Christian Andersen, Ursula Le Guin, and Lois Lowry, plus inimitable explorations of difficult social interrelationships, Solomon’s short tome is, indeed, a deep read.”
