Seanan McGuire - Minden szív kaput nyit
Eleanor West otthona csellengő gyerekek számára. Házalók, látogatók, vizsgálók kíméljenek! A gyerekek hajlamosak eltünedezni, ha adja magát a lehetőség. Átlépnek a szekrény hátulján, becsusszannak egy tükörbe, beesnek a nyúl üregébe, vagy egy vén kútba, hogy aztán egy merőben más helyen bukkanjanak elő. De a mágikus vidékek már semmi hasznát nem látják azoknak a gyerekeknek, akikből kifacsarták a csodát. Nancy is utazott egyszer, aztán visszaküldték. Viszont mindaz, amit átélt a túloldalon... az ilyesmi megváltoztatja az embert. A West kisasszony gondjaira bízott gyerekek nagyon is meg tudják érteni. Ugyanis mindnyájan keresik a visszautat saját fantasztikus világukba. Nancy érkezése azonban komoly változást hoz az Otthonba. Valamiféle sötétség ólálkodik a sarkok mögött, és amikor elszabadul a pokol, Nancy és újdonsült iskolatársai lesznek azok, akiknek a rejtély végére kell járnia. Kerül, amibe kerül. „Seanan McGuire már jó ideje a legokosabb írók egyike, ez a kisregény pedig egyértelműen megmutatja, hogy a szíve ugyanolyan hatalmas, mint az agya. Tudjuk, hogy ez a történet nem igaz, de igazságból van szőve.” – Charlaine Harris, a True Blood New York Times-bestseller szerzője „Seanan McGuire Minden szív kaput nyit című kisregénye az egyik legkülönlegesebb történet, amit valaha olvastam!” – V. E. Schwab, az Egy sötétebb mágia New York Times-bestseller szerzője „Seanan McGuire ebben a veszteségről, vágyakozásról és sérült gyermekekről szóló történetben ismét megmutatja, milyen bensőségesen ismeri az emberi szívet.” – Paul Cornell „Annyira agyeldobósan jó, hogy már fáj!” – io9 „A Minden szív kaput nyittal McGuire megteremtette a saját portal fantasy mini-remekművét: egy olyan könyv gyöngyszemet, ami megérdemli a helyet Lewis Carroll és C. S. Lewis klasszikusai mellett, tíz körömmel vájja ki magának.” – NPR

Christopher X. Sullivan - The Lover
An asexual man falls in love with a male model... and is introduced to the fine art of getting down. Chris and Mark are officially a couple... though Chris isn't out to his parents. Mark, on the other hand, is trying to mend his broken relationships with his father and grandfather. Their new romance is a source of stability for Mark and chaos for Chris. Together they navigate the many pitfalls of their newly sexual intimacy. Meanwhile, Chris can't keep his family out of the loop forever because his mother is an especially gifted amateur sleuth. Also, it doesn't help that Mark wants to show off their romance like a first grader who brought a puppy to show-and-tell. [The Lover is Book Four in a ten book series. You can read this as the beginning of a four book "Lovers and Second Chances" story arc. You should probably read the first three books to understand the fullness of the characters, but this isn't strictly necessary. Book One, Book Four and Book Eight all serve as 'jumping in' points for the series. It's Just Us Here: The Lover is a 120,000 word journey of two men making a life together, staking out personal boundaries and gently adding sexual exploration to their intense emotional relationship.]
Christopher X. Sullivan - The Partner
An asexual man falls in love with a male model... and they make it work. Chris and Mark try to separate. It doesn't go smoothly. Why was it so easy to grow close, yet now so difficult to pull apart? Maybe they can pretend one last time... can they pretend to be boyfriends for a week? Can that solve their problems? [The Partner is Book Three in a ten book series. You can read this as a standalone and understand the plot, but you'll be missing a lot of character development. This is a 90,000 word journey to a well-deserved HEA between two men who hold nothing back.]
Claudie Arseneault - Baker Thief
Adèle has only one goal: catch the purple-haired thief who broke into her home and stole her exocore, thus proving herself to her new police team.

These new red gems are heralded as the energy of the future, but she knows the truth: they are made of witches’ souls. When her twin—a powerful witch and prime exocore material—disappears, Claire redoubles in her efforts to investigate. She keeps running into Adèle, however, and whether or not she can save her sister might depend on their conflicted, unstable, but deepening relationship. --------------- BAKER THIEF is the first in a fantasy series meant to reframe romance tropes within non-romantic relationship and centering aromantic characters. Those who love enemies-to-lovers and superheroes should enjoy the story!
Christopher X. Sullivan - The Stud

Chris is in the closet with his family, but Mark doesn't add pressure and remains a solid support. Meanwhile, Mark is struggling to reconnect with his parents and older sisters and Chris is the catalyst that enables the vain male model to return home. All good things must come to an end, and if you've read this far in the series, you should know that the last few chapters of this book contain the long-foreshadowed Big Fight. This self-portrait was written as a romance... but not every story gets a happy ending. [The Stud is Book Five in a ten book series. You can read this as the mid-point of a four book arc. You should probably read the friends-to-lovers story (contained in the first three books) to understand the fullness of the characters, but this isn't strictly necessary. Book One, Book Four and Book Eight all serve as 'jumping in' points for the series. It's Just Us Here: The Stud is a 118,000 word journey of two men connecting in a deep, spiritual way as they navigate a sexual relationship while juggling careers, friends and family.]

Nicole Kornher-Stace - Firebreak
One young woman faces down an all-powerful corporation in this all-too-near future science fiction debut that reads like a refreshing take on Ready Player One, with a heavy dose of Black Mirror. Ready Player One meets Cyberpunk 2077 in this eerily familiar future. “Twenty minutes to power curfew, and my kill counter’s stalled at eight hundred eighty-seven while I’ve been standing here like an idiot. My health bar is flashing ominously, but I’m down to four heal patches, and I have to be smart.” New Liberty City, 2134. Two corporations have replaced the US, splitting the country’s remaining forty-five states (five have been submerged under the ocean) between them: Stellaxis Innovations and Greenleaf. There are nine supercities within the continental US, and New Liberty City is the only amalgamated city split between the two megacorps, and thus at a perpetual state of civil war as the feeds broadcast the atrocities committed by each side.

When a chance encounter with one of the game’s rare super-soldiers leads to a side job for Mal—looking to link an actual missing girl to one of the SecOps characters. Mal’s sudden burst in online fame rivals her deepening fear of what she is uncovering about BestLife’s developer, and puts her in the kind of danger she’s only experienced through her avatar.

Cass Lennox - Blank Spaces
Absence is as crucial as presence. The decision to stop dating has made Vaughn Hargrave’s life infinitely simpler: he has friends, an excellent wardrobe, and a job in the industry he loves. That’s all he really needs, especially since sex isn’t his forte anyway and no one else seems interested in a purely romantic connection. But when a piece is stolen from his art gallery and insurance investigator Jonah Sondern shows up, Vaughn finds himself struggling with that decision. Jonah wants his men like his coffee: hot, intense, and daily. But Vaughn seems to be the one gay guy in Toronto who doesn’t do hookups, which is all Jonah can offer. No way can Jonah give Vaughn what he really wants, not when Jonah barely understands what love is. When another painting goes missing, tension ramps up both on and off the clock. Vaughn and Jonah find themselves grappling not just with stolen art, but with their own differences. Because a guy who wants nothing but romance and a guy who wants nothing but sex will never work—right? Not unless they find a way to fill in the spaces between them.

Tyler Davis has spent the last year recovering from an emotionally abusive relationship. So he doesn’t need to be pushed into a rushed routine for a dumb competition. Ticking major representation boxes for being trans and biracial isn’t why he went into dance. But Evie turns out to be a dream student.

Plans change, and people change with them. Learning a few steps is one thing; learning to trust again is another entirely.

Julie Sondra Decker - The Invisible Orientation
What if you weren't sexually attracted to anyone? A growing number of people are identifying as asexual. They aren’t sexually attracted to anyone, and they consider it a sexual orientation—like gay, straight, or bisexual. Asexuality is the invisible orientation. Most people believe that “everyone” wants sex, that “everyone” understands what it means to be attracted to other people, and that “everyone” wants to date and mate. But that’s where asexual people are left out—they don’t find other people sexually attractive, and if and when they say so, they are very rarely treated as though that’s okay. When an asexual person comes out, alarming reactions regularly follow; loved ones fear that an asexual person is sick, or psychologically warped, or suffering from abuse. Critics confront asexual people with accusations of following a fad, hiding homosexuality, or making excuses for romantic failures. And all of this contributes to a discouraging master narrative: there is no such thing as “asexual.” Being an asexual person is a lie or an illness, and it needs to be fixed. In The Invisible Orientation, Julie Sondra Decker outlines what asexuality is, counters misconceptions, provides resources, and puts asexual people’s experiences in context as they move through a very sexualized world. It includes information for asexual people to help understand their orientation and what it means for their relationships, as well as tips and facts for those who want to understand their asexual friends and loved ones.
