Cover of A Song to Drown Rivers by Ann Liang Anticipated 2024 Speculative Fiction Book Releases

Though this is later than usual, I once again scoured the internet looking for information on speculative fiction books that are scheduled for release this year and put together a list of works that I wanted to highlight. Just like the last few years, it was hard to keep the number of books featured in this annual post to a somewhat reasonable number given that there is so much coming out that sounds interesting.

But I also got to visit a cat cafe and spend time with some adorable kitties as an early Christmas gift, and as usual, I read some wonderful books. One of the biggest highlights of 2022 was the eleventh annual Women in SF&F […]

The Tangleroot Palace by Marjorie Liu - Cover Image Review of The Tangleroot Palace by Marjorie Liu

I’d never read any of these stories before this book so I […]
