DEAD ASTRONAUTS by Jeff VanderMeer

“Highly recommended for those interested in sf invested in ecological concerns and speculative fiction that plays with narrative form. New readers will want to read BORNE before diving in to its multi-dimensional sequel.”–Booklist, starred review

THIS IS HAPPINESS by Niall Williams
2 starred reviews!
“With a beckoning gentleness that belies the deeper philosophies at play, superb Irish author Williams (HISTORY OF THE RAIN, 2014) offers a lilting, magical homage to time and redemption, and a stirring, sentimental journey into the mysteries of love and the possibilities of friendship.”–Booklist, starred review
“The heart-expanding extremes of life—first love and last rites—are experienced by an unsettled young Dubliner spending one exceptional spring in a small Irish village…A story both little and large and one that pulls out all the Irish stops.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Horatio Hornblower fans won’t want to miss the latest chapter in this stirring saga.”–Publishers Weekly
