Review: Planetfall by Emma Newman

When I requested a copy of Planetfall, I assumed I was going to get a standard ‘humans colonize a planet, things go wrong’ science fiction book -- which is great, don't get me wrong.  However, Planetfall turned out to be one of the most unexpected, brilliant, and compelling sci-fi books I’ve ever read.

ARC Review: Sea of Rust

Sea of Rust first drew my eye because it has one of the most stunning covers I've seen this year, and we've established here before that I am incredibly shallow when it comes to my books.  I was delighted by the description -- it sounded so incredibly Asimovian and old-school sci-fi that I had to take a chance.

ARC Review: Blackwing

Blackwing is a book I heard about on Twitter, a trend I’m noticing more and more for myself.  I was curious about it, but not hugely compelled to seek it out.  I requested a copy when I saw it go up on NetGalley, and I’m so glad I did. Blackwing was a huge surprise for me, and Ed McDonald has quickly became a new favorite author.
