Sneak Peek: May 2021 Indie Next List

The May 2021 Indie Next list features 5 Macmillan titles!

THE PLOT by Jean Hanff Korelitz
ISBN 9781250790767, on sale 5/11/21

“Deep character development, an impressively thick tapestry of intertwining story lines, and a candid glimpse into the publishing business make this a page-turner of the highest order. Korelitz deserves acclaim for her own perfect plot.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

ARIADNE by Jennifer Saint
ISBN 9781250773586, on sale 5/4/21

“But as the story continues, the two women become more complex—and bold. They grow stubborn and dare to grasp at happiness and even independence in a patriarchal world where anything might draw the ire of the gods or goddesses above them. Fans of Madeline Miller’s CIRCE (2018) will enjoy this faithful retelling that centers the often-forgotten women of Greek myth.”–Booklist

THE NEWCOMER by Mary Kay Andrews
ISBN 9781250256966, on sale 5/4/21

“Andrews expertly builds the tension (and a sweet romance) while exhibiting her deft hand at developing quirky characters, strong southern women, and charming locations.”–Booklist

FUGITIVE TELEMETRY by Martha Wells
ISBN 9781250765376, on sale 4/27/21

“The formula remains successful: fast-paced and action-packed, with plenty of sarcasm and plans that don’t work as intended. But maybe this time Murderbot is starting to find their place in their new home. Maybe they could even make a friend or two along the way. And maybe that’s not as horrible as it sounds. Another strong entry in a series fans adore.”–Booklist

SORROWLAND by Rivers Solomon
ISBN 9780374266776, on sale 5/4/21

“Solomon once again stretches the boundaries of speculative fiction in this distinct and visceral exploration of the trauma of Black and queer bodies in an all-too believable near future.”–Booklist, starred review

“As in their debut, AN UNKINDNESS OF GHOSTS, Solomon often packs so much into each image that the result can be overwhelming. They display a maturing control of their craft, employing a breathtaking range of reference that will enable any reader, from horror geek to Derridean academic, to engage with this thrilling tale. This is a tour de force.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
