At the end of the Victorian era, a handful of public intellectuals advocated for tolerance of the “Uranian”—a man who loved other men. Some went so far as to propose that these “intermediate sexes” might, in fact, constitute a totally different species, even serve as intrepid guides in our march toward an uncertain future. The five speculative stories in Theodore McCombs’s kaleidoscopic collection span several possible worlds, teasing the boundaries between coexisting realities and taking up the question of queer difference from one surprising vantage after another. In “Toward a Theory of Alternative Lifestyles,” a heartbroken gay man waits in line at an exclusive Berlin rave promising visions of parallel lives across the multiverse. In “Six Hangings in the Land of Unkillable Women,” at the turn of an alternate 20th century, a policeman’s wife feels that if you want an execution done right, you just have to do it yourself. And in the operatic novella “Uranians,” an expedition of queer artists, scientists, and one trans priest embark on a lifelong interplanetary voyage that requires them to renegotiate their connections to a remote and hostile Earth, while keeping their ship’s biome—and each other—alive.

Then I get a text from a dating company I joined over a year ago. They’ve finally found a match for me. Guess what? He’s my next freaking mark! I’m a little conflicted. What am I supposed to do when I chase him down? Fight him or fuck him? I suppose there’s only one way to find out. AmazonKU

But after a decade of abuse and misery inflicted by the cruel prince, Maren wants nothing more than to leave him and her royal role behind and find Edonia to reverse the spell. An opportunity for escape presents itself when the prince and princess are traveling overseas and are taken hostage by a band of notorious pirates, led by the fearsome Captain Ramsay “Bones” Battista. Maren has heard the sordid stories about the infamous pirate–not only is his ship supposedly haunted and crewed by the damned, but that no prisoners ever survive. Fortunately for Maren, she learns that the captain also has a score to settle with the sea witch. With any luck, Maren may be able to get her old life back, even if it’s being held in the captain’s wicked hands. But Ramsay gets more than he bargained for when he learns who–and what–Maren is, and that her appetite for revenge, freedom, and bloodlust rivals his. Meanwhile Maren finds herself falling for the pirate’s dark nature, even as she discovers that Ramsay has a secret more deadly than her own. When it comes to the high seas, not all monsters lurk beneath the surface. AmazonKU

KEIRA – I woke up next to a monster. Literally. As a Hollywood producer I thought I’d seen everything. Until I met Luke. My company passed on his movie pitch—a convoluted story about how monsters are real—but Luke and I have instant chemistry. I don’t expect this sweet, charming guy to be dominant and demanding in bed, but he is, and it’s the best night of my life. The next morning…LUKE – I’m exhausted. That’s my only excuse for falling asleep and forgetting to stay human. The moment I saw Keira all I could think was “mine,” and though I messed up the dinner date, once I put my (human) hands on her I knew just what to do. Even better, Keira wasn’t afraid when I got possessive and rough with her delectable body. After a night of passion I fall asleep, and turn back into a monster. Keira’s terrified…but not for long. She’s smarter and braver than anyone I’ve ever met. She and her friends agree to help us, but not everyone is ready to find out that monsters are real.
LINKS TO RECENT NEW RELEASES POSTS from Veronica:
“New” is generally plus or minus a week or two. I try to catch up on ones I missed in recent months. And I may mention ‘special items’.
I do NOT cover every single new release in SFR/FantasyR/PNR. I never have. That would be an impossible task for any human! I assemble my list by hand every week based on various informal inputs, and I do curate the list to some extent…
Some authors aren’t in KU but still don’t list books with Apple or other platforms. This report is very time consuming to prepare so I’ve always had to limit myself and cannot go and look up every book on all the platforms. If an author gives me their other buy links, I include them here but generally I develop the post on my own, not from author-supplied information. I curate and prepare this post individually every week to help connect readers/books/authors and I have to be very careful not to give it so much time as an activity that I don’t write my own novels! Thanks for the feedback and happy reading!
I check and verify all the buy links at the time I create the post but after that I’m not responsible.
