Artemis by Andy Weir - Weir has a tough act to follow after the blockbuster success of The Martian. Set on the only city of the Moon,  Artemis is half crime caper, half SF survival adventure. Plucky, down-on-her-luck protagonist Jazz Bashara is willing to put aside her common sense to make a big score that will pull her out of poverty. Trouble is, criminal acts are much, much harder to pull off once outside the city's protective bubble.... (November 14)

The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden - In January 2017, we picked Arden's debut novel The Bear and the Nightingale as one of the best books published that month among all books, not just within science fiction and fantasy. In this sequel, Vasilisa, newly awakened to her powers and branded a witch, leaves her village to make her way in the world disguised as a boy. But her anonymity will not hide her from the attention of the mortal world, or the world of old gods, for long. (Decemeber 5)

It Devours! by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor - Fans of the Welcome to Night Vale podcast and last year's novel by Fink and Cranor should set time aside to plunge back into the weird and wacky desert town where shapeshifting and talking to aliens are among the least surprising things that occur. (October 17)

The Empress by S. J. Kincaid - I enjoyed every page of Kincaid's surprising and sleek YA SF novel The Diabolic, so I can't wait to return to the story of Nemesis, who fought against all odds to survive the backstabbing (and wine-poisoning and vacuum-strangling) politics that finally put her ally, Tyrus, in a position of power, with Nemesis by his side. Because in every great sequel, things really go to hell. (October 31)
