Ascension, by Nicholas Binge

Staff Pick

When the world’s largest mountain suddenly appears in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, scientists, explorers, and the U.S. military rush to find out what's happening. Where did this land mass come from, and why did the last expedition to explore it end in a catastrophe of madness and death? As with so many planetary mysteries, the answers lie on the mountain's summit; thus this novel adds adventure to its already astrophysical mind trip of cosmic horror mixed with speculative mystery.

The Postcard, by Anne Berest

Staff Pick

This unique literary masterpiece opens in present-day France with Anne receiving a postcard naming four of her relatives who perished in the Holocaust. Who sent it--and why now? As Anne struggles to find out who these relatives were and what their lives were like, Berest blends mystery and history into an engrossing, propulsive weave of fictionalized genealogical narrative and commentary to explore the persistence of antisemitism through the generational trauma of one family and chart her protagonist's move toward embracing a religion and ethnicity she grew up knowing little about.

The Great Transition, by Nick Fuller Googins

Staff Pick

Googins's wonderfully written and propulsive speculative fiction/thriller debut is set in a near future when humanity--through a host of New Deal measures--has managed to bring emissions down to zero. But as he shows us what this new world might look like, questions persist: how did we come together and solve the crisis? And could we forgive and forget and move on--or are we at risk of being torn apart once more? We watch the tensions play out in the lives of one family; heroes during the Great Transition, they're now struggling to move forward and give up the fight.
