The full list of releases follows.
Six Months, Three Days, Five Others by Charlie Jane Anders
The man who can see the future has a date with the woman who can see many possible futures.
The Charlie Jane Anders collection, Six Months, Three Days, Five Others, collects all six of the award-winning author’s original Tor.com stories thus far, including “Clover,” set in the world of All the Birds in the Sky, which answers the question on everybody’s lips: What happened to Patricia’s cat?
Old Man’s War by John Scalzi
Considered one of John Scalzi’s defining works, Old Man’s War is the first book in a space opera that currently spans 6 books.
John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First he visited his wife’s grave. Then he joined the army.
Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding. Earth itself is a backwater. The bulk of humanity’s resources are in the hands of the Colonial Defense Force. Everybody knows that when you reach retirement age, you can join the CDF. They don’t want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living.
Wild Cards by George R. R. Martin
The first introductory volume to George R. R. Martin’s vast superhero universe, Wild Cards tells you everything you need to know about how our world could become full of superpowered peoples. From there you can stick with the chronology or jump around to one of the 20+ volumes set in a world batted between Jokers and Aces.
Edgedancer by Brandon Sanderson
“Lift prepared to be awesome.”
From Sanderson’s epic Stormlight Archive fantasy series comes Edgedancer, a standalone novella originally available in Arcanum Unbounded, a story collection that explains the various connections in Sanderson’s literary “cinematic universe” known as The Cosmere.
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
This edition of Orson Scott Card’s classic novel Ender’s Game comes packaged with cover art by Sam Weber. Peek into his process of redesigning Ender’s Game here.
From The Two Rivers (The Wheel of Time) by Robert Jordan
