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.

January 2019 Indie Next Pick

Lyrical prose cuts with an honesty of losing childhood innocence that eases the heartache that sometimes accompanies coming of age.”Library Journal, starred review
