2024 summer books

A new month means new book releases and June is chockful of them. Fantasy by the genre’s wittiest scribe and a glorious lit-fic debut are just a pair of what the month has to offer. Below are some of our favorite books coming in June. 

  1. “The Daughter’s War” by Christopher Buehlman

If you haven’t read Buehlman’s wonderful “The Blacktongue Thief” then now’s the time as its prequel is due to come out June 25. Those of us who enjoyed the author’s marvelous narration on Audible will be sad he won’t be lending his vocal talent this time around. Thankfully, the exceptionally gifted Nikki Garcia will be in the booth his time. Whether in print or via audio, “The Daughter’s War” promises a solid, rip-rollicking 400+ pages of awesomeness.

  1. “Service Model” by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Among sci-fi authors Tchaikovsky is about as dependable as rain in Seattle. “Service Model”, judging from the synopsis, is a humor filled dystopian tale up there with the best of them. Its being marketed as “Murderbot meets Redshirts” which, alongside the name gracing the cover, is certainly a winning combination.

  1. “Birds Aren’t Real: The True Story of Mass Avian Murder and the Largest Surveillance Campaign in US History” by Peter McIndoe and Connor Gaydos

Conspiracy theories have become increasingly popular in recent years. These days you can’t walk outside without running into a flat-earther or Moon Landing denier. Birds Aren’t Real started out as a campaign to show just how absurd conspiracy theories can be and here the champions of the comedic movement are at it again. If the book is anything like their TedTalk, expect plenty of laughs.

4. “Craft: Stories I Wrote for the Devil” by Ananda Lima

The brilliant Ananda Lima is a rising Brazilian American star that wowed poetry-lovers with her collection “Mother/Land”. Early reviews indicate she’s done it again with her fiction debut, “Craft Stories I wrote for the Devil”. Like many of the most powerful Latin American novels, Lima tells the story of an immigrant none of us will want to miss.
