The Black Tides of Heaven by JY Yang

The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps by Kai Ashante Wilson
Killing Gravity by Corey J. White
The Murders of Molly Southbourne by Tade Thompson

"Joyously wild stuff. Highly recommended."—The New York Times on The Black Tides of Heaven

“A thrilling romp through a gleaming cybernetic future that's neither dystopia nor utopia, but embedded in our reality—I wish more science fiction were as exciting and relevant as Runtime.”—Ken Liu on Runtime

"Wilson is doing something both very new and very old here: he's tossing aside the traditional forms of sword and sorcery in favor of other, older forms, and gluing it all together with a love letter to black masculinity. The result is powerful and strange and painful in all the right ways."—N.K. Jemisin on The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps

"Clear and snappy prose."—Warren Ellis on Killing Gravity

"A bold outpouring of flesh and crisis at once horrifying and familiar."—The New York Times on The Murders of Molly Southbourne
