Elementary (All-New Tales of the Elemental Masters):  Mercedes Lackey

In March 1987, Mercedes Lackey, a young author from Oklahoma, published her first novel, Arrows of the Queen. No one could have envisioned that this modest book would be the beginning of a fantasy career that would span decades and more than a hundred novels, with no signs of slowing yet. And among Ms. Lackey's many novels, few are as critically-acclaimed and beloved as those of the Elemental Masters. The novels in this series are loosely based on classic fairy tales, and take place in a fantasy version of turn-of-the-century London, where magic is real and Elemental Masters control the powers of Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Now the voices of other authors join Mercedes Lackey to add their own special touches to this delightful alternate history, in a world where magic is always just around the corner.

For one thing, genetic errors have crept in with each generation.

At least that's what the murder of a North clone in the English city of Newcastle suggests to Detective Sidney Hurst. Sid is a solid investigator who'd like nothing better than to hand off this hot potato of a case. The way he figures it, whether he solves the crime or not, he'll make enough enemies to ruin his career.

The Hidden Crown: Northland - 1166:  David Haworth 

What would have happened if William of Normandy had lost the Battle of Hastings? What kind of nation would have been born if King Harald of Norway had conquered England instead?

The Hidden Crown is an alternate-history adventure that takes place a hundred years after such events. The country that would have become Norman England has split in two: the Anglo-Norse kingdom of Northland and the Saxon realm of Ængland. The two nations have been at peace for nearly a century, that is until the dying king of Ængland unexpectedly names his nine-year-old granddaughter, Adelise, as his heir. During her journey home to Ængland through the wilds of Northland, the child-queen is rescued from a bloody assassination attempt by the young Northlandic soldier, Thurstan Ælfsson.

The Past That Might Have Been, the Future That May Come: Women Writing Fantastic Fiction, 1960s to the Present:  Lauren J. Lacey, Donald E. Palumbo 

This book explores how contemporary fantastic fiction by women writers responds to the past and imagines the future. The first two chapters look at revisionist rewritings of fairy tales and historical texts; the third and fourth focus on future-oriented narratives including dystopias and space fiction. Writers considered include Margaret Atwood, Octavia E. Butler, Angela Carter, Ursula K. Le Guin, Doris Lessing, and Jeanette Winterson, among others. The author argues that an analysis of how past and future are understood in women's fantastic fictions brings to light an "ethics of becoming" in the texts - a way of interrupting, revising and remaking problematic power structures that are tied to identity markers like class, gender and race. The book reveals how fantastic fiction can be read as narratives of disruption that enable the creation of an ethics of becoming.

The U.S. is militarily inept, however, and is led by a sick and delusional president who wanted to avoid war at any price.

Heartbreaker werewolf Nick Sorrentino is dispatched to hunt Malcolm Danvers, the pack's sadistic former alpha; he is aided by supernatural PI Vanessa Callas, a fire demon whose abilities are never fully exploited in the story. Nick's assertion that Vanessa underestimates Malcolm is proven correct when one of her agents is injured to bait them. As Malcolm taunts them with gory tableaus of dead female victims (and Armstrong suggests that Malcolm may be gay, as though that has any bearing on his evilness), Vanessa discovers Nick is more than a handsome womanizer.

Consider the improbable and seemingly random events that produced the "just right" conditions for life on earth, and ask why worldwide extinctions over the last half-billion years enabled the relatively recent emergence of human intelligence. Consider why humans have not yet found any evidence of other spacefaring species, which begs the question: Why are we on this planet, in this universe, at this time, apparently alone?
