Charlie Jane Anders - Minden ​madár az égen
Több ​sci-fi díjat nyert írónk Charlie Jane Anders regénye az életről, a szerelemről, a világvégéről - és a jövőnk kezdetéről szól. Patricia és Laurence gyerekkori barátok, akik nem gondolták volna, hogy valaha is újra találkoznak, miután a középiskolában rejtélyes körülmények között váltak el útjaik. Patricia varázserői és Laurence kétmásodperces időgépe kicsit sem mondható a fiatalság általános életéhez tartozónak A cselekmény a nem túl távoli jövőben játszódik. Az egymástól távol töltött idő alatt mindketten felnőttek és San Francisco divat fellegvárában élnek, miközben a bolygó lassan szétesik körülöttük és nem is sejtik, hogy mindketten azon dolgoznak, hogy saját képességeiket felhasználva ezt megakadályozzák. Laurence egy mérnökzseni, aki szélsőséges csapatával azon dolgozik, hogy technológiájukkal beavatkozzanak a világ változó éghajlatába és ezzel meggátolják a katasztrofális ökológiai összeomlást. Patricia az Eltisley Maze misztikus iskola diplomása, amely a világ tehetséges varázslóinak titkos akadémiája, és egy kis csoportnyi mágussal azon fáradozik, hogy titokban begyógyítsa a világ egyre növekvő sebeit. A két főhősnek fogalma sincs arról, hogy valami rajtuk túlmutató kezdődött évekkel ezelőtt, aminek szánt szándéka, hogy a köztük lévő megmagyarázhatatlan kötelék jegyében erőik egyesítésével együtt megmentsék meg a világot, vagy egy újabb sötét korszakba taszítsák azt.

Charlie Jane Anders - All ​the Birds in the Sky
Childhood ​friends Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead didn't expect to see each other again, after parting ways under mysterious circumstances during high school. After all, the development of magical powers and the invention of a two-second time machine could hardly fail to alarm one's peers and families. But now they're both adults, living in the hipster mecca San Francisco, and the planet is falling apart around them. Laurence is an engineering genius who's working with a group that aims to avert catastrophic breakdown through technological intervention into the changing global climate. Patricia is a graduate of Eltisley Maze, the hidden academy for the world's magically gifted, and works with a small band of other magicians to secretly repair the world's every-growing ailments. Little do they realize that something bigger than either of them, something begun years ago in their youth, is determined to bring them together--to either save the world, or plunge it into a new dark ages. A deeply magical, darkly funny examination of life, love, and the apocalypse.

Charlie Jane Anders - The ​City in the Middle of the Night
"If ​you control our sleep, then you can own our dreams... And from there, it's easy to control our entire lives." Set on a planet that has fully definitive, never-changing zones of day and night, with ensuing extreme climates of endless, frigid darkness and blinding, relentless light, humankind has somehow continued apace -- though the perils outside the built cities are rife with danger as much as the streets below. But in a world where time means only what the ruling government proclaims, and the levels of light available are artificially imposed to great consequence, lost souls and disappeared bodies are shadow-bound and savage, and as common as grains of sand. And one such pariah, sacrificed to the night, but borne up by time and a mysterious bond with an enigmatic beast, will rise to take on the entire planet--before it can crumble beneath the weight of human existence.
