CREATING THINGS THAT MATTER: The Art and Science of Innovations That Last
by David Edwards

“This contribution to the literature of idea development is significant in that it provides practical guidelines along with timely observations. Combined with the already fervent emphasis on STEM (or STEAM, as the case may be) in today’s curriculum, this title will prove to be sustaining and relevant.” Booklist

“Fascinating… His work imparts an invigorating sense of discovery and of hope for a more innovative, compassionate, and collaborative future.” Publishers Weekly

A WELL-BEHAVED WOMAN: A Novel of the Vanderbilts
by Therese Anne Fowler

People Magazine —“The Best Books of Fall”

2 starred reviews!

“As accomplished as its subject, redoubtable socialite and women’s suffrage crusader Alva Vanderbilt Belmont, Fowler’s engrossing successor to 2013’s Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, again showcases her genius for seeing beyond the myths of iconic women. Though the novel’s lavish sweep and gorgeous details evoke a vanished world, Fowler’s exploration of the way powerful women are simultaneously devalued and rewarded resonates powerfully.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Watching Fowler’s heroine vanquish the gatekeepers and minions who stand in her way is nothing short of mesmerizing.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Autonomous by Annalee Newitz

“The cofounder of the sf website io9.com takes some of today’s key social and technical issues (the nature of artificial intelligence, the notion of property and ownership) and wraps them in a compelling, original story line acted out by memorable characters. VERDICT Lovers of original, thought-provoking sf should not miss this one.”–Library Journal, starred review

Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado

“Machado creates eerie, inventive worlds shimmering with supernatural swerves in this engrossing debut collection. Her stories make strikingly feminist moves by combining elements of horror and speculative fiction with women’s everyday crises… Machado’s slightly slanted world echoes our own in ways that will entertain, challenge, and move readers.”–Publishers Weekly, starred + boxed review

“Machado’s debut collection brings together eight stories that showcase her fluency in the bizarre, magical, and sharply frightening depths of the imagination…An exceptional and pungently inventive first book.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
