Berlin Is Never Berlin Marko Kloos
For over 25 years, the Wild Cards universe has been entertaining readers with stories of superpowered people in an alternate history. “Berlin is Never Berlin” by Marko Kloos draws upon the seedier side of the city, beyond the dance club lights and all-night parties, as one bodyguard with a certain feline distinction goes on the prowl….
Khan only had one job: chauffeur and guard an American wealthy socialite and her friends. When his client Natalie Scuderi gets nabbed by the Georgian mafia, this joker-ace has no choice but to go underground and rescue her. “Losing the man’s daughter on the job would be a fatal black mark on his professional resume. Khan had never lost a client, and he wasn’t about to start a habit.” http://click.mail.macmillan.com/?qs=e928b26ebe79fbeae1f31d5ba7640fbcbbdd9f8f645e4da79d373a9540fce11e3cf23e68d08c87f7e52af38a90a5c0c48ddc245624b69702
Benjamin 2073 Rjurik Davidson
In the year 2073, humanity is making progress toward restoring the environment and fixing the mistakes of the past. Ellie has spent the last ten years going even further by working to resurrect the thylacine, extinct since 1936. But with no results and increasingly impatient bureaucrats threatening to pull their funding, the thylacine’s future—and Ellie’s—is in danger of reaching the point of no return. http://click.mail.macmillan.com/?qs=e928b26ebe79fbeae1f31d5ba7640fbcbbdd9f8f645e4da79d373a9540fce11e3cf23e68d08c87f7e52af38a90a5c0c48ddc245624b69702

The Tourist Alex Sherman

We’re Here, We’re Here K. M. Szpara
Joining a boyband gave Tyler everything he ever dreamed of. A close-knit group of friends, the chance to model a beautiful masculinity, and a vocal implant that lets him sing even better than he did before transitioning. But deep on tour, Tyler realizes he wants more from one of his bandmates, yearns for a love that would never fit the image that has been carefully crafted for him. His manager wants him to be the heartthrob: available, wholesome, and pure. And since his manager gave Tyler his voice, he can always take it away again. http://click.mail.macmillan.com/?qs=e928b26ebe79fbeae1f31d5ba7640fbcbbdd9f8f645e4da79d373a9540fce11e3cf23e68d08c87f7e52af38a90a5c0c48ddc245624b69702
Two Truths and a Lie Sarah Pinsker
Stella thought she’d made up a lie on the spot, asking her childhood friend if he remembered the strange public broadcast TV show with the unsettling host she and all the neighborhood kids appeared on years ago. But he does remember. And so does her mom. Why doesn’t Stella? The more she investigates the show and the grip it has on her hometown, the eerier the mystery grows.
The Night Soil Salvagers Gregory Norman Bossert
The Night Soil Salvagers no longer need to perform the service they have provided for longer than memory can account for. Instead, they pass the nights in playful and profound acts of artistry, music, trickery, gardening, and honoring the city they know and belong to more so than anyone. Uncover the heart of this mysterious community through the tales they tell each other, the tales that others tell of them, and the scores of their Dadaesque nocturnes, as they strive to lessen the burden of the city on the Earth.
