A bunch of these are also on my TBR list! But there's a few others that are really exciting me:

- An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon, October 10th. I read an ARC and IT'S SO GOOD! It's science fiction novel set on a generation ship (would work for your space opera challenge) with a black, autistic, intersex woman as the protagonist. It's about race, gender, classism, oppression, mental health, disability and more, and it's super queer. Like so queer. Please look it up!

- The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy, August 15th. A novella I've been hearing good things about, plus I've liked some of the author's short stories. It's another that's supposed to be queer.

- The Ruin of Angels by Max Gladstone, September 5th. The newest Craft Sequence book!

- Odd & True by Cat Winters, September 12th. Sisters fighting monsters! Plus, there's supposed to be disability rep.

- An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard, September 26th. I really loved her debut novel Roses and Rot, so I'm excited for this new stand alone fantasy book.

- The Black Tides of Heaven by JY Yang, September 26th. They're another author who's short fiction I've enjoyed, and in September, they're releasing two novellas that are queer, East Asian epic fantasy.

- The Murders of Molly Southborne by Tade Thompson, October 3rd. It's a novella about a woman who clones herself whenever she bleeds -- and her clones immediately try to kill her. It's by the author of Rosewater, a truly great sci-fi story set in Nigeria.

- Where the Stars Rise: Asian Science Fiction and Fantasy, October 8th. This anthology has a bunch of authors whose careers I'm following, and I'm excited to be introduced to new authors.

Best, Sarah (@coolcurrybooks on twitter).

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
