THE EMPEROR’S SOUL: 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION by Brandon Sanderson
When Shai is caught replacing the Moon Scepter with her nearly flawless forgery, she must bargain for her life with an impossible task: to create a new soul for an emperor in fewer than one hundred days. This special edition of the Hugo-Award winning novella THE EMPEROR’S SOUL features the deleted prologue “The Imperial Fool,” which alludes to Sanderson’s bestselling Mistborn series; prologue commentary; and an original introduction from the publisher.
NEOM by Lavie Tidhar
Today, Neom is a utopian dream—a megacity of the future yet to be built in the Saudi desert. In this deeply imaginative novel from the award-winning universe of CENTRAL STATION, far-future Neom is already old. Sentient machines roam the desert searching for purpose, works of art can be more deadly than weapons, and the spark of a long-overdue revolution is in the wind.

In this intricate debut fantasy introducing a queernormative Persian-inspired world, a nonbinary refugee practitioner of blood magic discovers a strange disease that causes political rifts in their new homeland. Persian-American author Naseem Jamnia has crafted a gripping narrative with a moving, nuanced exploration of immigration, gender, healing, and family.
THE UNBALANCING by R. B. Lemberg
In this first full-length novel from the acclaimed Birdverse, new love blossoms between an impatient starkeeper and a reclusive poet as they try together to save their island home. THE UNBALANCING is a gorgeous tale of the inevitable transformations of communities and their worlds rooted in the mystical cosmology, neurodiversity, and queerness that infuses Lemberg’s lyrical prose.
