Ghostland is not a simple attempt to debunk or support ghost tales. Rather, it is a thoughtful look at what ghost stories mean to us and what they can tell us about our collective and national psyche. Dickey takes us to fascinating places (including a haunted Toys R’ Us), creating a spooky, unsettling, and often uneasy travelogue that goes beyond sensational ghost stories to take a deep look at memory and history. Ghostland is an insightful and remarkable regardless of your stance on ghostly apparitions.

Central Station by Lavie Tidhar is a mosaic of interconnected stories, all describing an incredibly immersive future of many cultures, beliefs, and minds. It’s beautifully-written, multifaceted in its style in characters, and filled with echoes of classic sci-fi (but without its shortcomings). Central Station is a virtual reality of a novel, with world-building so vivid and organic, it will make you feel as if this future is already here. This book is Gibson-, Bradbury-, Delany-level good, and must be on everyone’s sci-fi reading list.

Unseen World is a book that will pull you in quietly and almost imperceptibly, as you follow the lives of homeschooled prodigy Ada and her enigmatic genius father David. It is smart and empathetic story of how people ‘falter, hurt one another’, of how larger history affects people’s lives. If you like your fiction with a nerdy slant, Moore provides much food for thought with her exploration of technology and its connection with us.
