People of the City:  Maresca, Marshall Ryan

Corruption and conspiracy have infected the city of Maradaine, from the top levels of power to the very depths beneath the city. Dayne Heldrin and Jerinne Fendall, elite warriors of the Tarian Order, have no idea how close they truly are to the center of the city's dark secrets. But when they learn that children are going missing, they know they must investigate further - no matter the cost. They are soon joined by others, each with their own reasons for seeking the children. Veranix Calbert, the vigilante known as the Thorn, thinks his enemies are responsible for the missing children. Inspectors Minox Welling and Satrine Rainey fear the disappearing children are tied to corruption in the city Constabulary. Asti and Verci Rynax hope to protect the kids from their streets, one of whom barely escaped the kidnappers. And a mysterious young cloistress seeks to lead each of them deeper down into the depths of enigmas beneath the city, to the dark, unholy cult known as the Brotherhood, and the horrors that are growing within it.

The Best of Jerry Pournelle:  Carr, John F

For half a century, Jerry Pournelle’s name has been synonymous with hard-hitting, idea-driven, wonder-inducing science fiction. His Falkenberg’s Legion stories and Janissaries series helped define the military SF genre, his CoDominium universe is an SF standard for worldbuilding and future history, and his novels with frequent collaborator Larry Niven are some of the most important works science fiction has ever seen - and the best-selling and most read.
Now, for the first time, Pournelle’s best short work is collected together in a single volume. Here are more than a dozen short stories, each with a new introduction by editor and long-time Pournelle assistant John F. Carr. The book also includes a cornucopia of Pournelle’s rampantly imaginative and compelling essays, as well as great remembrances by Pournelle collaborators Larry Niven, S.M. Stirling, and more!

Antediluvian:  McCarthy, Wil

Before disaster erased the coastlines and river valleys of the Antediluvian age - before the mythic Flood - men and women struggled and innovated in a world of savage contrasts. It turns out that our legends of the Stone Age are even older than we think. It was a time when a world of archetypes and myths was written upon the fabric of humanity in the deepest way - a world that has only been preserved in the oldest stories with no way to actually visit it. Until now. In a brilliant and dangerous brain-hacking experiment, Harv Leonel and Tara Mukherjee are about to discover entire lifetimes of human memory coded in our genes, and reveal ancient legends - from knights and trolls to the birth of humanity itself - that are very real. And very deadly.

Attack Surface:  Doctorow, Cory

Most days, Masha Maximow was sure she'd chosen the winning side.
In her day job as a counterterrorism wizard for an transnational cybersecurity firm, she made the hacks that allowed repressive regimes to spy on dissidents, and manipulate their every move. The perks were fantastic, and the pay was obscene. Just for fun, and to piss off her masters, Masha sometimes used her mad skills to help those same troublemakers evade detection, if their cause was just. It was a dangerous game and a hell of a rush. But seriously self-destructive. And unsustainable. When her targets were strangers in faraway police states, it was easy to compartmentalize, to ignore the collateral damage of murder, rape, and torture. But when it hits close to home, and the hacks and exploits she’s devised are directed at her friends and family - including boy wonder Marcus Yallow, her old crush and archrival, and his entourage of naïve idealists - Masha realizes she has to choose.

The Valkyrie Protocol:  Weber, David

Agent Raibert Kaminski and the crew of the Transtemporal Vehicle Kleio have stumbled across a temporal implosion that has claimed two whole universes, and neither Raibert nor his crew can ­ figure out what caused this calamity, or how to stop its spread. Meanwhile, old colleagues of Raibert’s from the Antiquities Rescue Trust, together with a version of Samuel Pepys transplanted from the 17th century into the 30th, have proposed an expedition into the past. The goal? To branch the timeline by preventing the Plague of Justinian, one of the worst pandemics in human history. And on a multidimensional level, governmental entity SysGov’s multiverse neighbor, the xenophobic Admin, is stirring. While their ambassadors put on a friendly show, the Admin is amassing a fleet of advanced, heavily armed time machines - with SysGov firmly in the crosshairs.

My Favorites: A Collection of Short Stories:  Bova, Ben

In this new collection, Ben Bova has compiled fourteen of his favorite short stories. Each story includes an all-new introduction with compelling insight into the narrative.
Exploring the boundaries of the genre, Bova not only writes of spaceships, aliens, and time travel in most of his titles, but also speculates on the beginnings of science fiction in ''Scheherazade and the Storytellers,'' as well as the morality of man in ''The Angel's Gift.'' Stories such as ''The Café Coup'' and ''We'll Always Have Paris'' dip into speculative historical fiction, asking questions about what would happen if someone could change history for the better. This expansive collection is a key addition for Bova fans and sci-fi lovers alike!
