A fun, fast paced science fiction novel about video games, aliens, and government conspiracies. And no this is not an Ender's Game sequel.
Set a century before A Song of Ice and Fire, these three masterfully crafted novellas follow Sir Duncan the Tall as he tries to make a name for himself in the world we have come to know so well.

A wild trip though revolutionary Chinese politics and the theory of physics, whether right or wrong.
The third volume of the Imperial Radch trilogy. This series has some of the best world-building since Frank Herberts' Dune! Told through the eyes of an Artificial Intelligence who sees no gender or political bias in a universe freshly emerging from strife.
Part one of the Dandelion Dynasty finds the reader dropped directly into the coup against the Emperor with two boys caught up in the whirlwind of chaos. Filled with magic items, shape-shifting gods, and near steampunk technology, this is an exciting look into the Chinese fantasy scene.
