THE BEST AMERICAN SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY 2019, series editor John Joseph Adams
This omnivorous selection of stories chosen by series editor John Joseph Adams and World Fantasy Award finalist Carmen Maria Machado is a display of the most boundary-pushing, genre-blurring, stylistically singular science fiction and fantasy stories published in the last year.
"Experimental...literary, and...boundary-pushing...there’s a decidedly global, multicultural feel to these pieces, which exemplify diversity and representation. A masterful showcase of what’s possible."

THE LAST HUMAN by Lee Bacon
Soon to be a major motion picture from the producers of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse! In a future when humans are believed to be extinct, what will one curious robot do when it finds a girl who needs its help?
"In this enjoyable sci-fi adventure, the stakes are believable and high, and the robots’ interactions are humorous, sometimes mixed up for comedic effect. Against a timely backdrop, Bacon (the Joshua Dread series) explores messages of friendship, tolerance, and cooperation with wit and thoughtfulness."
