  • The Coincidence Makers by Yoav Blum (St. Martin's). For those who believe there is no such thing as coincidence, Blum's genre-blend offers uncanny affirmation. Led by a team who makes such seemingly odd intersections happen, this novel walks that thrilling supernatural line between the known and the possible.
  • Bury What We Cannot Take by Kirstin Chen (Little A: Amazon). Three generations of Ongs are sent into a whirlwind in Chen's kaleidoscopic inquiry into the bonds of family. Set in Maoist China in the 1950s, this work is powered by the choices each character makes—to tell a story, to leave a child, to destroy a portrait.
  • Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions by Mario Giordano; tr. from German by John Brownjohn (Houghton Harcourt). Thanks to the EU, a robust German widow decides she wants to spend her dotage in Sicily, in wine-y, sun-drenched bliss. Alas, it is not to be. Her handyman is murdered and retirement is far from case closed.
  • The Hunger by Alma Katsu (Putnam). Some of the scariest questions in horror are those that brush up against known facts. Katsu proves that point with this reimagining of what happened to the Donner Party. What is lurking along the trail, in the mountains, and inside the fate-begotten expedition?
  • Bring Out the Dog: Stories by Will Mackin (Random). This debut collection has drawn enviable endorsers, including George Saunders, Karl Marlantes, and Phil Klay. The attention is for Mackin's acute rendering of the prismatic shards of war, drawn from his multiple deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.
