ExistenceHow to Keep Smiling After the End of the World as We Know It

By David Brin

Most of literature and storytelling boils down to one basic issue, how to balance our hopes and our fears. Within a novel we adopt the characters’ yearnings–briefly–as our own, trying them on for size. And when those dreams, those ambitions, are threatened?



Dark CompanionHaunted Mansions and Eclipses

By Marta Acosta

One of the things I like best about my house is the light coming through all the windows, but yesterday evening, I sensed that the quality of light was odd. My husband said that it was probably just the fog rolling in, but I’ve lived in a fog belt all my life and this was different.



The Hollow CityIt’s Not All A Beautiful Mind

By Dan Wells

At the Denver WorldCon in 2008 they had a panel on mental illness in fiction, and having written a series about a boy with sociopathy I thought it would be cool to check it out. I don’t know what I was expecting; maybe some kind of retrospective of cool stories about mental disorders, but what I got was far more interesting and valuable.



Johnny Hiro: Half Asian, All HeroJohnny Hiro: Half Asian, All Hero Sneak Peek!

Written and Illustrated by Fred Chao

Johnny Hiro is just a regular guy—a restaurant worker trying to learn the skills to become a sushi chef; someone who works a minimum wage job but wants to create a better life for himself and his girlfriend. Fortunately or unfortunately, his girlfriend Mayumi, is the daughter of a 1970s Japanese action hero.



ThieftakerFinding Research Treasure

By D. B. Jackson

Researching a novel like Thieftaker, my Revolutionary War–era urban fantasy, which was released by Tor on July 3, can be a roller coaster ride. Success gives way to frustration, which in turn gives way to new successes.
