May 8th - 15th Book Releases

 May 10th
Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi
It's a classic case of good news, bad news. Independent contractor Jack Holloway helps cause a cliff collapse, which gets him fired from his partnership; but the accident reveals a vein of valuable jewels, which gets him rehired and promises to make him rich. Of course, there's a catch: To maintain the claim on his newfound wealth, the partners must be able to certify that the planet is not inhabited by any sentient beings—and that, of course, is the cue for the small, lovable, furry little creatures to appear.



Central Park Knight by C.J. Henderson
Superhero museum curator Piers Knight saves the world in the first two chapters of this sequel to 2010's Brooklyn Knight, but fear not, another apocalypse is on the way. This time it's dragons. Knight, his ex-girlfriend Tian Lu, and socially challenged museum intern George Rainert are snatched up by honest-to-gosh Men in Black and taken to Washington to begin planning their defense against the ancient creatures. Their weapons include magic powders, rail guns, missiles, geek energy, Web traffic, and Knight's sharp wits. The fast and furious action might make up for the occasional failings of fact (the Brooklyn Museum has not had a "magnificent stairway" since 1934), and the book concludes with Knight ready for the next disaster.

The Chaos Crystal by Jennifer Fallon
The Tide Lords have gathered in Jelidia and find they must find the Chaos Crystal that brought them to this world. It is discovered that Elyssa, Scard Crasii, Warlock's cruel immortal mistress knows the location of the Chaos crystal and with every immortal searching for the crystal the stakes are high.







Mind Storm by K.M. Ruiz
Two hundred and fifty years after the world was nearly wiped out by nuclear war, what’s left of society fights over the scraps of the Earth as the rich and powerful plan to ascend in secret to another planet. But the deadly new breed of humanity that the rulers have enslaved to protect their interests are about to change everything.









The Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi
Jean le Flambeur is a post-human criminal, mind burglar, confidence artist, and trickster. His origins are shrouded in mystery, but his exploits are known throughout the Heterarchy— from breaking into the vast Zeusbrains of the Inner System to stealing rare Earth antiques from the aristocrats of Mars. Now he’s confined inside the Dilemma Prison, where every day he has to get up and kill himself before his other self can kill him.
