A private eye veers between permanently lit Dayzone and ever-dark Nocturna, seeking a teenage runaway in a world where Time is random, individualized, and arbitrary. The teen's pursuers may include a serial killer who vaporizes after lethal strikes, as if able to bend and control Time. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare


Anthologies for Pres(id)ents!

An anthology is basically the perfect middle way of gifts. Halfway between a specific book (maybe they love this author and will love the book and haven't read it before! But also maybe not) and a gift card (you know they love Northshire and reading and books. You're just not exactly sure which ones).

"You will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view" Obi-Wan once told Luke Skywalker, who was devastated that he had been lied to about his father's fate. This new collection of short stories set in that galaxy far, far away explores other events in the Star Wars universe, both large and small. Many of the authors featured in this hefty collection have never before published Star Wars stories, so each new tale is a breath of fresh air, even for fans who have read everything in the ever-expanding universe. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

The social construct is turned upside down when girls discover they have the power of electricity at their fingertips— literally.

The Silo Series by Hugh Howey is one of my favorite sci-fi discoveries of the past 5 years. If I could go back and read any book for the first time, Wool would certainly be it. This new collection of previously-released (mostly online) work contains 3 new stories set in the Silo Universe. I loved every single second of them. Howey is a majorly talented writer, and his other stories in this collection show that he's not just a one-hit wonder. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
