Author Spotlight: Seanan McGuire

When I think fantasy master, I think Seanan McGuire.

This bestselling, Nebula, Alex, Locus, and Hugo Award-winning author solidifies her rockstar status with every book she publishes, and today we celebrate all things Seanan McGuire.

Coming Soon:

MIDDLEGAME
Master storyteller Seanan McGuire introduces readers to an America run in the shadows by the Alchemical Congress, a powerful society focused on transmuting reality itself in this standalone fantasy. Meet Roger. Skilled with words, languages come easily to him. He instinctively understands how the world works through the power of story. Meet Dodger, his twin. Numbers are her world, her obsession, her everything. All she understands, she does so through the power of math. Roger and Dodger aren’t exactly human, though they don’t realize it. They aren’t exactly gods, either. Not entirely. Not yet.

Also by Seanan McGuire:

IN AN ABSENT DREAM
Launched McGuire into the LibraryReads Hall of Fame
January 2019 Indie Next Pick
“McGuire’s fourth in the ‘Wayward Children’ series takes the concepts of fairness and common sense and twists them through the doorways of a portal fantasy with an amazing landscape and characters. Lyrical prose cuts with an honesty of losing childhood innocence that eases the heartache that sometimes accompanies coming of age.”Library Journal, starred review

AN ANONYMOUS GIRL by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

THE BEST BAD THINGS + NEWCOMER = November LibraryReads Picks! Penny + Moriarty = Hall of Famers!

OH HAPPY DAY! Katrina Carrasco’s THE BEST BAD THINGS and Keigo Higashino’s NEWCOMER are November 2018 LibraryReads picks

THE BEST BAD THINGS

“Stellar… Carrasco succeeds in coupling a feminist historical that maintains period plausibility with an exploratory queer narrative rarely seen in the crime genre. Even readers uninterested in Alma’s identity journey will be impressed by her intelligence and social acumen, and drawn by the constantly shifting politics and well-timed reveals of the plot. Breath-catching pacing, tantalizingly rough-and-tumble characters who are somehow both distasteful and deeply relatable, palpable erotic energy, and powerful storytelling make this a standout.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

NEWCOMER

“Part Sherlock Holmes, part Harry Bosch, Higashino’s hero is a quietly majestic force to be reckoned with. Here’s hoping his demotion continues to bring him to the attention of readers from East to West.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

 

And in other news that makes us #squee, Louise Penny’s KINGDOM OF THE BLIND and Liane Moriarty’s NINE PERFECT STRANGERS are LibraryReads Hall of Famers
