New releases & recommendations

Monkey kings, werewolves, space pizza, cloud hunters...this email has it all. With summer around the corner (it is, really!), we've been stocking our shelves with all kinds of fantastic reads, and this week's new releases do not disappoint. Take a look and see for yourselves...

P.S. You might have noticed that our website looks different. We've made some changes and unveiled our shiny new site yesterday, check it out! It still has that new website smell.

We're excited for these:

Blacktongue Thief

Monkey King

Before there was The Lord of the Rings, there was China's Monkey King, one of the all-time great fantasy novels--which Neil Gaiman has said "is in the DNA of 1.5 billion people"--now published in a thrilling new one-volume translation with an illustrated foreword by Gene Luen Yang. Both Gretchen & Dana are eager to dive into this Chinese classic (plus it's obviously Dana's pick for cover of the week!).

Whisper on the Night Wind

Spellbinding adventure from a modern-day explorer and wilderness folklore expert that just may have you looking over your shoulder on your next hike into the woods. Critics have called it "like something out of Lovecraft" (Book City). 

Explore the unknown »
Vodolazkin explores fame, music, heritage, belonging, and memory, calling into question: Whose story is it - the subject's or the writer's? Are art and love really no match for death? This novel "digs deep into the role of the Ukrainian and Russian languages play in people's lives" and cultures (--Marian Schwartz).
Dana's currently reading this one and had to add it to our shelves.
