"Shadow Scale is the follow-up to Seraphina, Rachel Hartman's wonderful debut fantasy novel. In Shadow Scale, Hartman shows us more of Seraphina's fractured, richly-imagined world while digging deeper into its cultures and characters. It's a very good book and fantastic finale to Seraphina's story."

"Richard Price knows the NYC urban landscape since his first writings in the 70's. Especially The Wanderers,  a modern classic. Why he is using the pen name Harry Brandt is beyond me but it is no reason to pass up this tightly written book that will hold you to the end with it's involvement and intrigue."

"Get in Trouble by Kelly Link is  a very good collection of nine speculative fiction short stories.  In many of the stories, Link captures her characters in defining moments that challenge us to think about the choices we make in our lives. None of the stories are hard core SF, so I would recommend to non SF readers as well as SF lovers. The only thing I didn't like about this book is the art on the book jacket." - Kay

“David Green is the NPR co-host of Morning Edition on the radio. He has had a variety of postings in his career and one of them was Moscow.

In Midnight in Siberia he writes about the real  people of today's Russia who have to deal with a whole new set of circumstances in their post-Soviet world.  This is a country that is changing dramatically as it progresses into the 21st century. The book is a very entertaining and informative travelogue of a territory not visited by many Westerner.” - Archie

Written as only T.C.Boyle can write.” - Anita
