OUT NOW: When The Sparrow Falls by Neil Sharpson (UK)!

We’re thrilled to say Neil Sharpson’s debut novel When The Sparrow Falls is out now!

This is an incredibly powerful, emotionally-charged dystopian thriller and we’re completely delighted to be publishing it in the UK.

In the future, AI are everywhere – over half the human race lives online.

But in the Caspian Republic, the last true human beings have made their stand; and now the repressive, one-party state is locked in perpetual cold war with the outside world.


Security Agent Nikolai South is given a seemingly mundane task; escorting a dead journalist’s widow while she visits the Caspian Republic to identify her husband’s remains. But Paulo Xirau was AI; and as Nikolai and Lily delve deeper into the circumstances surrounding Paulo’s death, South must choose between his loyalty to his country and his conscience.

“Part spy thriller, part dark dystopian, When The Sparrow Falls is a complex examination of identity, technology, power, and control.” — The Nerd Daily

“The world of the Caspian Republic is drawn with precision worthy of Philip K. Dick and the plot, with its gripping twists and turns, is worthy of comparison with Le Carré at his best. Rarely does such an exciting and innovative new voice emerge, both refreshing the genre and reminding the reader of what made them fall in love with it in the first place.” — Jessica Traynor, essayist and poet

OUT NOW: The Angel of the Crows – Paperback!

We’re very excited to say that Katherine Addison’s completely brilliant The Angel of the Crows is now available in paperback!

After the success of the hardback back in September, we’re so pleased to be able to bring this fantastic book to even more UK readers in paperback.

This is not the story you think it is. 

These are not the characters you think they are.

This is not the book you are expecting.

London 1888. Angels inhabit every public building, and vampires and werewolves walk the streets with human beings in a well-regulated truce. A utopia, except for one thing: Angels can Fall, and that Fall is like a nuclear bomb in both the physical and metaphysical worlds.

Dr J. H. Doyle returns to London having been wounded in Afghanistan by a Fallen, and finds himself lodging in Baker Street with the enigmatic angel Crow. But living with a rogue angel is not so easy; the pair find themselves drawn into the supernatural and criminal worlds of London, from a man kidnapped by a vampire nest to Jack the Ripper’s horrific murders.

Besides Doyle’s nightmares, there is the lingering worry that Crow might Fall…

Each book Addison writes is a highly-polished and gorgeously set gem. The Angel of Crows is no exception.FRAN WILDE, Nebula-winning, Hugo and World Fantasy Nominated author of Updraft and The Fire Opal Mechanism

A new Katherine Addison book is a cause for celebration. Break out the champagne, this one’s a treat!ELLEN KLAGES, author of Passing Strange, winner of the British Fantasy Award and World Fantasy Award

OUT NOW: Anna by Sammy H.K. Smith!

We’re incredibly pleased to say that Anna by Sammy H.K. Smith is out now!

This chillingly poignant novel is set in a near-future dystopia, and explores the sacrifices we make for the sake of protection.

Beaten. Branded. Defiant.

Anna is a possession. She is owned by the man named Will, shielded from the world of struggles by his care. He loves her, protects her, and then breaks her. Anna is obedient, dutiful, and compliant. Anna does not know her place in the world.

When she falls pregnant, Anna leaves her name behind, and finds the strength to run. But the past – and Will – catch up with her in an idyllic town with a dark secret, and this time, it’s not just Anna who is at risk.

A chilling feminist novel set in a near-future dystopia, Anna explores the conflicts between selfhood and expectations, safety and control, and the sacrifices we make for the sake of protection.

Anna is a totally immersive read. Dark and compelling, you’ll want to clear a schedule to make time to read this because once you start, it will be hard to stop.” — Shalini Boland, USA Today bestselling author

“I loved this book. It challenged me, drew emotions to the surface, gave me pause, time to reflect, to think, and created a believable dystopian world for it all to happen in.” — G. R. Matthews, author of Seven Deaths of an Empire

“A personal story of female resilience.” — Publishers Weekly

OUT NOW: The Storm’s Betrayal by Corry L. Lee

We’re completely thrilled to say that The Storm’s Betrayal by Corry L. Lee is out now!

The intense, dramatic sequel to 2020’s break-out Russian-inspired epic Weave the Lightning, it’s the brilliant second instalment in The Bourshkanya Trilogy!

Lies. Magic. Treason.

The great Stormhawk Bourshkany’s paranoid, fascist leader is seemingly unkillable, but for the rebellion to succeed, he must die.

Celka Prochazka uses magic in ways no one believed possible. She could be the perfect resistance assassin if she can avoid being discovered as a traitor.

Gerrit Kladivo, the Stormhawk’s son, is determined to end his father s tyrannical rule. But to get Celka close enough to his father, he must first prove unflinching loyalty to the regime.

Filip Cizek swore his life to protect Gerrit and the regime. But with Gerrit’s actions twisting him into a stranger, Filip must decide how deep his loyalty runs.

Together, they will attempt the impossible but the cost may be everything they hold dear.

“A sweeping epic of romance, revolution, elegant strangeness, and elemental magic.” — Jason Heller

“Tense, timely, and crackling with urgent energy. I guarantee that by the end of the book, you will be looking for your own resistance to join… or to start.” — Premee Mohamed

“…focused and honed as a lightning strike, beautifully balanced and directed. This is a cutting story of revolution, rebellion, romance, and the sort of strange sorcery that we don’t see very often…” — Seanan McGuire

STEEL FRAME
Andrew Skinner

FLY HARD

Rook is a jockey, a soldier trained and modified to fly ‘shells,’ huge robots that fight for the outer regions of settled space. When her shell is destroyed and her squad killed, Rook is imprisoned, left stranded, scarred and broken. Hollow and helpless without her steel frame, she’s ready to call it quits. 

Rook’s cohort of prisoners are sold into indenture to NorCol, a vast frontier corporation, and she’s given another shell — a near-decrepit Juno, as broken as she is and decades older — and sent to a rusting bucket of a ship on the end of known space to patrol something called “the Eye,” a strange, unnerving permanent storm is space. 

But they’re not alone…

DEATH OF A CLONE
ALEX THOMSON

DESIGNED. MANUFACTURED. EXPENDABLE…

The Overseers may call it Hell, but for Leila and the other clones, the mining base on asteroid Mizushima-00109 is the only home they’ve ever known. Then Leila’s sister Lily is murdered, and the Overseers seem less interested in solving the crime than in making their mining quota and returning to Earth. 

Leila decides to find the murderer, just like the heroes in her old detective novels would. But Hell is a place of terrible secrets, and a love of cozy mysteries may not be enough to keep Leila from ending up like her sister.
