Book excerpt: A dystopian tale of a power struggle between the sexes in the post-nuclear future, perfect for readers of Margaret Atwood and Ursula K. Le Guin. After a nuclear holocaust, women rule the world. Using advanced technology, they’ve expelled men from their vast walled cities to roam the countryside in primitive bands, bringing them back only for the purpose of loveless reproduction under the guise of powerful goddesses. When one young woman, Birana, questions her society’s deception, she finds herself exiled among the very men she has been taught to scorn. She crosses paths with a hunter, Arvil, and the two grow close as they evade the ever-threatening female forces and the savage wilderness men. Their love just might mend their fractured world—if they manage to survive. Hailed as “one of the genre’s best writers” by the Washington Post Book World, Pamela Sargent is the author of numerous novels, including Earthseed and Venus of Dreams. The winner of the Nebula and Locus awards, she has also coauthored several Star Trek novels with George Zebrowski.

Book excerpt: A GQ Best Book of the Month • A New York Post Must-Read Book • A Flavorwire Book of the Week • A New York Daily News Can't-Put-Down Novel “[Parish] has got chops, and a feel for dialogue, and is a talent in the making.” —Bill Buford, The Wall Street Journal “Read this book in a beach chair. . . . [A] worldy and propulsive debut.”—GQ An exhilarating novel of reinvention, friendship, and ambition—from the Jersey Shore to St. Andrews in Scotland Tom Alison has it all within his reach. He’s smart, handsome, and about to graduate from a prestigious East Coast boarding school. After that it’s off to the Ivy League and then a job on Wall Street, alongside the power brokers he’s been watching from a distance as the working-class son of a single mom. And then the very life his mother worked so hard to escape catches up with him when he gets busted selling drugs. Lucky for Tom, there are places for boys and girls with ruined reputations. First, he returns to his roots on the Jersey Shore, reconnecting with a hard-living crew and cementing a bond with his new friend Clare Savage—the son of a recently disgraced financier. The two boys spend their summer surfing and partying. When fall arrives, they head to St. Andrews University in Scotland, a haven for Americans in need of a second chance and a favorite of the British ruling class. Tom and Clare escape to Scotland together, but it’s Tom who discovers a world shaped by even more powerful forces of greed and ambition than the one he left behind. Sucked into a maelstrom of sex, drugs, and status, Tom learns what it takes to break the rules—and how we can be broken by them. Driven by a cast of young men and women living in an age of riotous prosperity, Down the Shore is an unflinching and unforgettable story of youth steeped in excess. Stan Parish has crafted a gripping novel that masterfully captures the lives of fallen financiers and the people they bring down with them—and reminds us that not even an ocean can separate us from our family, our friends, or our past.

Book excerpt: A “brilliant” vision of a future Earth populated by immortals—from the Nebula and Locus Award–winning author of The Shore of Women (The Seattle Times). When Josepha was a teenager, she tried to kill herself. But the pills she swallowed did not deliver the release she was seeking—and three hundred years later, she is still alive, thanks to the miraculous scientific breakthrough called “the Transition.” Like Josepha, the biologist Merripen can remember only too well what the world once was, before his groundbreaking work in genetic engineering rendered death obsolete. The “perfect” children he and Josepha bred together were unburdened by physical flaws and emotional defects. And now, centuries on, these undying offspring have an eternity to question the reasons for their very existence—and to seek answers in Death Cults and frightening new experiments in genetic manipulation. Vividly imagined, episodic in structure, The Golden Space is a profound and disturbing meditation on humanity’s desire for immortality from “one of the genre’s best writers” (The Washington Post).

Book excerpt: Native Americans win the battle for the post–Civil War American West in a fascinating alternate history fantasy from “one of the genre’s best writers” (The Washington Post). Nebula and Locus Award–winning author Pamela Sargent “loads her Springfield and heads into the post–Civil War era with a rousing tale of what might have happened had the Indians united against white encroachment. If Harry Turtledove has been driving the Alternate America stage, Pamela is now riding shotgun” (Jack McDevitt). In a different nineteenth-century version of America, after the end of the White Man’s Civil War, the victorious North sets its sights on westward expansion. But their army is greatly depleted after years of bloody conflict. And their Native American adversaries are ready . . . and waiting. As the visionary Lakota chief, Touch-the-Clouds, cements the necessary alliances with once rival tribes, two separate worlds brace for the inevitable confrontation to come. Lemuel Rowland, a US government official and full-blood Seneca Indian, has lived among the white man for most of his life. Now the approaching storm threatens to destroy everything he believes in. Torn between the culture he’s embraced and his true heritage, Lemuel has been entrusted with a grave responsibility and knows he must prove his loyalty. But to which side? Populated by a large and colorful cast of unforgettable characters—including Sitting Bull, Chief Crazy Horse, Calamity Jane, and other real-life personages—Climb the Wind is a “most enjoyable and entertaining new alternate history adventure which . . . brings a new dimension to the form” (Gahan Wilson).
