Oryx and Crake
Oryx and Crake
by Margaret Atwood
Staff Pick
Reading a dystopian novel that so closely matches the current political and cultural situation seems like an exercise in depression, yet part of the truly visceral response to this novel seems due to the realization that it could so easily happen in... (read more)

Wool
Wool
by Hugh Howey
Staff Pick
I don't usually read too much in the post-apocalypse genre, but two employees chose this self-published book in their Top 5 list last year, and when Simon & Schuster produced it this year, I just had to give it a try. And, yeah, the title and cover are... (read more)

An Echo in the Bone
An Echo in the Bone
by Diana Gabaldon
Staff Pick
At last! The seventh book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander saga is here! I could hardly wait to get my hands on it — and I was not disappointed. While Claire and Jamie are caught up in the American Revolution, their daughter Brianna has settled back... (read more)

Redshirts
Redshirts
by John Scalzi
Staff Pick
I don't reread books often; I just don't have the time. But this is one book that will get reread annually, if not more often. While the bulk of Redshirts is a comedic romp that gleefully skewers the conventions of sci-fi television, the three codas at... (read more)

Dies the Fire
Dies the Fire
by S. M. Stirling
Staff Pick
A Tolkien-obsessed pre-teen, a pilot, a Wiccan priestess, the Eaters (nope, no hints), and the Protector: all come together in the aftermath of an event not unlike a massive electromagnetic pulse, which has caused a complete failure of all technology... (read more)

MaddAddam
MaddAddam
by Margaret Atwood
Staff Pick
In the powerful finale to her too-close-for-comfort dystopian/apocalyptic trilogy (following the mind-blowingly awesome Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood), Atwood leaves us with an epic tale filled with survival, humor, and — ultimately... (read more)

Among Others
Among Others
by Jo Walton
Staff Pick
Serious readers spend half their lives consumed by what they are reading. I haven't seen a novel that so vividly illustrates this as Among Others does. I've been reading science fiction and fantasy since a young age, and I loved how Walton, a constant... (read more)

Foundation (Foundation Novels)

Ishmael
Ishmael
by Daniel Quinn
Staff Pick
For those of us who have been in the rat race of modern culture long enough that we have stopped thinking, and for those of us who have never deeply examined our place in the world, this book is an awakening. It just may change the way you think about... (read more)

Gardens of the Moon: Malazan  Book of the Fallen #01
Gardens of the Moon: Malazan Book of the Fallen #01
by Steven Erikson
Staff Pick
Gardens of the Moon is the first book in one of my favorite fantasy series. Unconventional in its characters and scope, this series rocks. The world and the races in it aren't your average Tolkien-derived orcs and elves. Everyone in these books is tinted... (read more)

The Dog Stars (Vintage Contemporaries)

A post-apocalyptic story with an open, elegant heart, Heller's debut novel follows a pilot, Hig, and an ex-military man, Bangley, in their fight for survival. Although stuck together in an uneasy partnership, they each flawlessly compensate for the... (read more)

The Windup Girl
The Windup Girl
by Paolo Bacigalupi
Staff Pick
I'd heard all manner of praise and complimentary comparisons for The Windup Girl, but it wasn't until I started to read the book that I began to believe, and in believing I was filled with sadness and wonder. Bacigalupi throws us into a terribly possible... (read more)

The Outsorcerer's Apprentice
The Outsorcerer's Apprentice
by Tom Holt
Publisher Comments
A happy workforce, it is said, is a productive workforce. Mmmm. Try telling that to an army of belligerent goblins. Or the Big Bad Wolf. Or a professional dragons layer. Who is looking after their well-being? Who gives a damn about their... (read more)

The Magician King
The Magician King
by Lev Grossman
Staff Pick
At this point, I love this series. The sequel to The Magicians really gets dark and fantastic, and the adventures are rich and mind-bending, to say the least. I'll admit that I'm not a big Narnia fan, but adults who are will probably also really dig The... (read more)

Grendel
Grendel
by John Gardner
Staff Pick
It's easy to find oneself in the thrall of hanks of blond hair and mead-fueled heroism, but it is a more difficult task to regard, with care, the heart of a monster. The monster (but is he?) in question is Grendel, an introspective animal who loves his... (read more)

Alif the Unseen
