NO LIFE BUT THIS by Anna Sheehan

From the acclaimed author of the bittersweet novel A LONG, LONG SLEEP comes a haunting stand-alone sequel.

In NO LIFE BUT THIS, Rose must take control of her future for the sake of her friends – and find a way to protect them without unwittingly caging them in love…

Rose slept for a hundred years and when she awoke the world as she knew it had vanished, utterly.

She has gone from being a cherished only child to being the sole heir to a vast, interstellar empire. From being alone to being surrounded by friends; from being protected against everything – whether she wanted to be or not – to having others depend upon her.

FISH TALES by Sheri S. Tepper

From one of the masters of science-fiction and fantasy, Sheri S Tepper, FISH TALES is an extraordinary novel.

In her 35th stand-alone novel, science fiction master Sheri S. Tepper boldly weaves together the storylines of eleven of her previous works – from KING’S BLOOD FOUR (1983) to THE WATERS RISING (2010).

In FISH TAILS, two of Tepper’s beloved characters – Abasio and Xulai (A PLAGUE OF ANGELS and THE WATERS RISING) – and their children travel from village to village scattered across the sparsely populated land of Tingawa. They are searching for others who might be interested in adopting their sea-dwelling lifestyle.
