    A beautifully tearful and satisfying end to the stories from the Discworld from one of the greatest writers of our time.
  2. Aurora – Kim Stanley Robinson
    The chillingly harsh depiction of the struggles of the space ship Aurora as she travels through the empty void of space in search of a new planet to call home.
  3. Luna: New Moon – Ian McDonald

  4. A Crucible of Souls – Mitchell Hogan
    A world of fantasy and intrigue with plenty of incredible surprises in store. With more books to come in this series, it’s is only going to get better and better.
  5. The Girl Thing Who Went Out For Sushi – Pat Cadigan
    Defying outdated social constructs such as gender roles and identity, this short story is perfect in its succinctness and form, leaving the reader questioning what/who they are and where they fit in this universe.
