The Runes of Engagement

The collaboration by Buckell (A Stranger in the Citadel) and debuter Klecha is tons of fun and full of geeky references and in-jokes. Will be catnip to readers who love this combination of military SF, alternate history, and fantasy.

A Stranger in the Citadel

In World Fantasy Award winner Buckell’s (The Trove) latest, Lilith undergoes a journey from innocence to terrible experience. Recommended for readers who enjoy stories that reveal in layers and any who liked the postapocalyptic, flawed reconstruction of knowledge in The Starless Crown by James Rollins.

The Tangled Lands

Bacigalupi (The Windup Girl) and Buckell (HALO: Envoy) have delivered an intriguing world and characters, but the collection lacks resolution and cohesion. The loosely related tales show promise but, without one overarching story line to tie them together, feel like companion stories to a novel not yet written.

Hurricane Fever

The sf in this thriller is subtle but packs a punch as the author imagines how climate change might affect the fragile ecosystems (and political systems) of the Caribbean. The thriller elements are strong with action, danger, a sexy but duplicitous blonde, and a hugely appealing hero.

Arctic Rising

With great cinematic potential, this near-future sf adventure should appeal to fans of disaster fiction and speculative fiction authors J.G. Ballard and Ben Bova.
