Science fiction and fantasy are our favorite genres because they allow for infinite diversity of viewpoints. But wih a galaxy of reading options out there, how does one pick one’s next book? Since we’re always interested in new releases and classics from the whole range of publishers, we recently recruited Barnes & Noble buyer Jim Killen to curate a monthly recommended-reading list for us. But indie booksellers also hold up half the sky, and therefore we’ll also be featuring regular Independent Bookseller Picks in the genres we love.
Each month, we’ll ask an independent bookseller from somewhere in the universe what they think we should be reading. At the same time you’ll get a little bit of information about the booksellers themselves. We’ll not only be showcasing great reading lists but also putting a spotlight on the many wonderful independent homes for SF&F books around the world.
Stay tuned for the first week of each month and we’ll bring you recommendations from:
- Borderland Books in San Francisco
- Book People from Austin
- University Bookstore in Seattle
- Forbidden Planet in the UK
- Bakka Phoenix Books in Toronto
- Mysterious Galaxy in California
- Powells Books in Oregon
- and others
Keep an eye on the site later today for the first recommendations list from Borderlands Books!
