First up, courtesy of NetGalley, I received:
- The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke — which I am super looking forward to party because of the title (what's not to like?) and partly because I loved her debut YA book, The Assassin's Curse.
- Pantomime by Laura Lam — which looks intriguing and I have high hopes for, since I've loved everything I've read from Strange Chemistry.
- The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord — and intriguing new SF novel. I haven't read all that much recent non-YA SF, hopefully this one won't be disappointing.
- A Galactic Holiday — a collection of three holiday themed SF-y novellas from Carina Press. Last year's steampunk collection included Wanted: One Scoundrel, so I'm hoping it'll be fun.
- Cracklescape by Margo Lanagan
- Through Splintered Walls by Kaaron Warren
