Tamsyn Muir, Gideon the Ninth


Brought up by unfriendly, ossifying nuns, ancient retainers, and countless skeletons, Gideon is ready to abandon a life of servitude and an afterlife as a reanimated corpse. She packs up her sword, her shoes, and her dirty magazines, and prepares to launch her daring escape. But her childhood nemesis won’t set her free without a service.

Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House and bone witch extraordinaire, has been summoned into action. The Emperor has invited the heirs to each of his loyal Houses to a deadly trial of wits and skill. If Harrowhark succeeds she will become an immortal, all-powerful servant of the Resurrection, but no necromancer can ascend without their cavalier. Without Gideon’s sword, Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die.

Of course, some things are better left dead.

Carmen Maria Machado, Her Body and Other Parties (Su cuerpo y otras fiestas)

Una mujer se niega a permitir que su marido le quite una misteriosa cinta verde que lleva alrededor del cuello; otra mujer relata sus encuentros sexuales mientras una letal plaga se extiende por el planeta; una intervención quirúrgica para perder peso tiene unos resultados siniestros; un par de detectives investigan varios crímenes acompañados por los fantasmas de las chicas asesinadas; una mujer es capaz de oír los pensamientos de los actores de las películas porno… Los ocho cuentos que componen este libro exploran el universo femenino mezclando sin complejos terror, realismo mágico, erotismo, ciencia ficción y comedia. Aquí la sexualidad confluye con lo siniestro, el deseo se torna perturbador, el humor deriva hacia lo grotesco y el cuerpo y la carnalidad se convierten en el sugestivo e inquietante centro de la creación literaria.

¿Dónde encontrarla? Editorial Anagrama

¿Qué opina Kameron? Frightening, evocative writing on par with anything by Angela Carter. (Escritura aterradora y sugerente a la par de cualquier cosa de Angela Carter.)

Caitlin Starling, The Luminous Dead

When Gyre Price lied her way into this expedition, she thought she’d be mapping mineral deposits, and that her biggest problems would be cave collapses and gear malfunctions. She also thought that the fat paycheck—enough to get her off-planet and on the trail of her mother—meant she’d get a skilled surface team, monitoring her suit and environment, keeping her safe. Keeping her sane.

Instead, she got Em.

Em sees nothing wrong with controlling Gyre’s body with drugs or withholding critical information to “ensure the smooth operation” of her expedition. Em knows all about Gyre’s falsified credentials, and has no qualms using them as a leash—and a lash. And Em has secrets, too . . .

As Gyre descends, little inconsistencies—missing supplies, unexpected changes in the route, and, worst of all, shifts in Em’s motivations—drive her out of her depths. Lost and disoriented, her control giving way to paranoia and anger, Gyre severs her connection with Em and the outside world. On her own in this mysterious, deadly place, surrounded by darkness and the unknown, Gyre must overcome more than just the dangerous terrain and the Tunneler which calls underground its home if she wants to make it out alive—she must confront the ghosts in her own head.

But how come she can’t shake the feeling she’s being followed?

¿Qué opina Kameron? A masterful, nail-biting thriller. Meticulously researched, expertly paced, with yearning, self-destructive heroines.

Kali Wallace, Salvation Day

Zahra knew every detail of the plan. House of Wisdom, a massive exploration vessel, had been abandoned by the government of Earth a decade earlier, when a deadly virus broke out and killed everyone on board in a matter of hours. But now it could belong to her people if they were bold enough to take it. All they needed to do was kidnap Jaswinder Bhattacharya—the sole survivor of the tragedy, and the last person whose genetic signature would allow entry to the spaceship.

But what Zahra and her crew could not know was what waited for them on the ship—a terrifying secret buried by the government. A threat to all of humanity that lay sleeping alongside the orbiting dead.

And then they woke it up.

Rebecca Roanhorse, Trail of Lightning (El rastre del llamp)

Mentre que pràcticament tot el món ha desaparegut per les inundacions d’una apocalipsi climàtica, Dinétah (antiga reserva navajo) ha renascut.
Els déus i els herois caminen entre els humans, però també els monstres.
La Maggie Hoskie és una matamonstres de Dinétah, una assassina amb poders sobrenaturals. Quan un poblat necessita ajuda per trobar una nena desapareguda, la Maggie és la seva última esperança, però el que descobreix del monstre és molt més espantós del que s’hauria pogut imaginar.
A contracor, la Maggie rep l’ajuda d’en Kai Arviso, un xaman molt poc convencional, i tots dos viatgen per la reserva desxifrant pistes de llegendes antigues, intercanviant favors amb engalipadors i lluitant contra la bruixeria més obscura en un món fragmentat on la tecnologia fa fallida i les morts se succeeixen sense explicació aparent.
Quan la Maggie descobreix la veritat que s’amaga rere els assassinats, haurà d’enfrontar-se al seu passat, si vol sobreviure.
Benvinguts al Sisè Món.
