Divinity’s Twilight: Rebirth

Newcomer Russell’s new high fantasy series launch is well written with a definite steampunk vibe and sword-and-sorcery appeal. Readers of alternate-world fantasy will find this a satisfying read and a good start for a new author who’s soon to have a loyal following.

The Last Campaign

Nebula Award-winning Shoemaker (Today I Am Carey) presents a kind of Martian love story overlaying a suspense thriller. The characters feel as real as the Martian cities and landscapes. The harsh survival realities of the red planet, clashes with a new civilization trying to find its own governing philosophy and economic stability. The strong, symbiotic couple entering this intense and unpredictable environment will delight sf readers and drama fans alike.


Salted with a bit of humor here and there, a clear cadence, and conventional ending, this will please anyone who embraces outer-space yarns.

Trial by Treason

In this sequel to Ironfoot, Duncan (The Seventh Sword, "King's Blades" series) has written a well-paced, fresh historical fantasy that fans of his other work will welcome. Those who enjoy a little sorcery with their history will not be disappointed.


Kennedy (Kingdom of Invaders; Subwayland) creates a reality that blows desert dust into the eyes and cheap motel musk into the nostrils, successfully capturing the intertwining lives of sad sacks who are painfully and at times comically doomed. Those who enjoy classic Western "drifter dramas" will be sinfully satisfied.

Mad Boy: An Account of Henry Phipps in the War of 1812

Arvin (Articles of War) has produced a curious and fanciful historical novel with eccentric characters staged in a rainy and fetid world of unforgiving nature and political circumstance. Occasionally "laugh out loud" funny, this somewhat facile work will entertain fans of dark humor, convoluted adventure stories, and historical drama.

Casefile: ARKHAM. Vol. 2: Her Blood Runs Cold: A Hank Flynn, P.I. Story

Finney (Utopiates; Titanium Rain) and McEvoy (Call of Cthulhu; Game of Thrones) deliver a visual blitz of stark black-and-white atmosphere and suspense that will appeal to mature readers with a penchant for classic pulp fiction, great pen-and-ink work, and edgy whodunits with a tip of the hat to stylish Hollywood crime drama.

Strange Fruit. Vol. 2: More Uncelebrated Narratives from Black History

A stellar continuation of the first book in the series. Ideal for YA audiences, high school and college classrooms, and anyone interested in a full view of American history. For curious readers, a nifty "Did You Know" section at the end presents more information about the main figures.

The Comic Book Story of Baseball: The Heroes, Hustlers, and History-Making Swings (and Misses) of America's National Pastime

Marvel comics veterans Coker and Smith deliver powerful graphics, tinted lightly with color for a marvelous vintage effect, while Irvine orchestrates a brief, masterly overview of this morale-boosting sport. Fans of any age will love.
