April brings spring showers, or as is the often the case in my home state of Texas, apocalyptic thunderstorms — this gives readers a chance to stay indoors and catch up on their book backlog. These are the five sci-fi/fantasy books I’m most anticipating this April:
Omar El Akkad’s long-form fiction debut combines alternative history with political suspense, in a dystopian, war-torn near-future world, exploring the possibility of a second American civil war in a land already wrecked by environmental disaster. American War looks intriguing.
The Broken Empire and Red Queen’s War trilogies were epic journeys through grimdark fantasy, and I have high hopes for Mark Lawrence’s new Book of the Ancestor series. Red Sister is the first book of the series, following a young girl at a convent that trains girls to be assassins.
Claire North’s The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is one of my favorite time travel novels and I thought The Sudden Appearance of Hope was a solid book — her newest, The End of the Day, appears to be another fantastical sci-fi mystery in the same vein.
In the Unhewn Throne series, my favorite (and many other readers’ favorite) character was the wisecracking, coldly violent, Death-worshipping Pyrre. Mark Lawrence’s Skullsworn is her story.
Where have you been, Mr. Doctorow? It seems like it’s been forever since Homeland. Walkaway is his first grown-up novel in four years, and it looks to be a doozy: an apocalyptic, dystopian tale with the classic Doctorowian study of society and technology. I’m in!
