The World SF 3 Bundle - Curated by Lavie Tidhar: I'm delighted to be launching a third World SF bundle in what I can only hope is by now an annual tradition. In the midst of some extraordinary turmoil across the globe, it takes writers from all corners of the Earth to weave profound new truths out of fantasies and paint new futures out of difficult pasts and turbulent presents.
The writers here come from Botswana and Bangladesh; Russia, Italy and France; Mexico, Spain, Israel and India. They are all of them fantastic, and I couldn't be happier sharing their work with you.
Read more about the 10 books in the bundle here, and make sure to click on each cover for a synopsis, reviews and preview of each book.
The Simoqin Prophecies by Samit Basu
"Cross-cultural extravaganza"– Locus
The Silence of the Wilting Skin by Tlotlo Tsamaase
"Motswana author Tsamaase debuts with a lyrical and incisive allegory about personal identity and cultural loss set in an unnamed, phantasmagoric African city. Through magnetic prose, dream logic, and lush imagery, Tsamaase delivers a fierce political message. Suffused with both love and righteous anger, this atmospheric anticolonialist battle cry is a tour de force."– Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Love and Other Poisons by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
"Mexican Gothic terrified and fascinated me. Silvia Moreno-Garcia proves once again that she's a genre-jumping wizard, one of the most exciting and necessary authors writing today."– Charlie Jane Anders, nationally bestselling author of The City in the Middle of the Night
Djinn City by Saad Z. Hossain
"A delightful fantasy adventure with a YA spirit, a PG rating, and a rich introduction to Arabian mythology."– Kirkus Reviews
New Atlantis by Lavie Tidhar
"A complex, layered and hugely enjoyable story."– Bestsf
In the Vanishers' Palace by Aliette de Bodard
"Gorgeously atmospheric queer fantasy… Like Jane Eyre if Rochester was a woman plus a dragon."– Zen Cho, author of The Terracotta Bride and Sorcerer to the Crown
Alphaland by Cristina Jurado
"Jurado's fiction sometimes defies classification, but it's always stimulating, imaginative and thought-provoking. Thanks the stars that none of the quality got lost in translation. Any fan of fantastical fiction will enjoy the stories inAlphaland."– Tade Thompson
Heart of Iron by Ekaterina Sedia
"Sedia superbly blends novel of manners, alternate history, and le Carré–style espionage with a dash of superheroes and steampunk."– Publishers Weekly, starred review
The Heart of the Circle by Keren Landsman
Winner of the Geffen Award for Best SFF Novel 2019
