Yoon Ha Lee - Raven Stratagem
Captain Kel Cheris is possessed by a long-dead traitor general. Together they must face the rivalries of the hexarchate and a potentially devastating invasion. When the hexarchate's gifted young captain Kel Cheris summoned the ghost of the long-dead General Shuos Jedao to help her put down a rebellion, she didn't reckon on his breaking free of centuries of imprisonment – and possessing her. Even worse, the enemy Hafn are invading, and Jedao takes over General Kel Khiruev's fleet, which was tasked with stopping them. Only one of Khiruev's subordinates, Lieutenant Colonel Kel Brezan, seems to be able to resist the influence of the brilliant but psychotic Jedao. Jedao claims to be interested in defending the hexarchate, but can Khiruev or Brezan trust him? For that matter, will the hexarchate's masters wipe out the entire fleet to destroy the rogue general?
Yoon Ha Lee - Revenant Gun
When Shuos Jedao wakes up for the first time, several things go wrong. His few memories tell him that he's a seventeen-year-old cadet--but his body belongs to a man decades older. Hexarch Nirai Kujen orders Jedao to reconquer the fractured hexarchate on his behalf even though Jedao has no memory of ever being a soldier, let alone a general. Surely a knack for video games doesn't qualify you to take charge of an army? Soon Jedao learns the situation is even worse. The Kel soldiers under his command may be compelled to obey him, but they hate him thanks to a massacre he can't remember committing. Kujen's friendliness can't hide the fact that he's a tyrant. And what's worse, Jedao and Kujen are being hunted by an enemy who knows more about Jedao and his crimes than he does himself...

Yoon Ha Lee - Dragon Pearl
Rick Riordan Presents Yoon Ha Lee's space opera about thirteen-year-old Min, who comes from a long line of fox spirits. But you'd never know it by looking at her. To keep the family safe, Min's mother insists that none of them use any fox-magic, such as Charm or shape-shifting. They must appear human at all times. Min feels hemmed in by the household rules and resents the endless chores, the cousins who crowd her, and the aunties who judge her. She would like nothing more than to escape Jinju, her neglected, dust-ridden, and impoverished planet. She's counting the days until she can follow her older brother, Jun, into the Space Forces and see more of the Thousand Worlds. When word arrives that Jun is suspected of leaving his post to go in search of the Dragon Pearl, Min knows that something is wrong. Jun would never desert his battle cruiser, even for a mystical object rumored to have tremendous power. She decides to run away to find him and clear his name. Min's quest will have her meeting gamblers, pirates, and vengeful ghosts. It will involve deception, lies, and sabotage. She will be forced to use more fox-magic than ever before, and to rely on all of her cleverness and bravery. The outcome may not be what she had hoped, but it has the potential to exceed her wildest dreams. This sci-fi adventure with the underpinnings of Korean mythology will transport you to a world far beyond your imagination.
Yoon Ha Lee - Tiger Honor
Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents Yoon Ha Lee's companion to the best-selling and award-winning DRAGON PEARL, another space opera inspired by Korean mythology, this time told from the point of view of a nonbinary tiger spirit. Sebin, a young tiger spirit from the Juhwang Clan, wants nothing more than to join the Thousand World Space Forces and, like their Uncle Hwan, captain a battle cruiser someday. But when Sebin's acceptance letter finally arrives, it's accompanied by the shocking news that Hwan has been declared a traitor. Apparently the captain abandoned his duty to steal a magical artifact, the Dragon Pearl, and his whereabouts are still unknown. Sebin hopes to help clear their hero's name and restore honor to the clan. Nothing goes according to plan, however. As soon as Sebin arrives for orientation, they are met by a special investigator named Yi and his assistant, a girl named Min. Yi informs Sebin that they must immediately report to the ship Haetae and await further instructions. Sebin finds this highly unusual, but soon all protocol is forgotten when there's an explosion on the ship, the crew is knocked out, and the communication system goes down. It's up to Sebin, three other cadets, and Yi and Min to determine who is sabotaging the battle cruiser. When Sebin is suddenly accused of collaborating with the enemy, the cadet realizes that Min is the most dangerous foe of all... Yoon Ha Lee brilliantly turns the tables on DRAGON PEARL in another unputdownable sci-fi adventure about what honor really means.

Yoon Ha Lee - Vezércsel
Egy képtelen háború megnyeréséhez hasonlóan képtelen eszközök kellenek. Mondjuk, egy ősi fegyver és egy áruló tábornok. Kel Cheris, a hexarchátus kapitánya az eretnekek ellen vívott csatában nem jóváhagyott módszert alkalmaz, ezért kegyvesztettséggel büntetik. A Parancsnokságtól azonban kap még egy lehetőséget, hogy kiköszörülje a becsületén esett csorbát: vissza kell foglalnia az ellenség által megszállt csillagerődöt. Ám az akció tétje nem csupán az ő karrierje, hiszen ha elbukik, a hexarchátus egész uralma meginoghat. Cheris minden reménysége a halott stratéga, Shuos Jedao – aki mégsem annyira halott, hogy ne segíthetne. Jedao egyrészről sosem vesztett életében egyetlen csatát sem, és az erődöt is jól ismeri. Másrészről azonban élete végén megőrült, és két teljes hadsereget mészárolt le – köztük a sajátját. A kapitánynak döntenie kell, megéri-e a stratégiai előny a vele járó veszélyeket. Mert Jedaóban talán még kevésbé bízhat, mint az életére törő ellenségeiben. A koreai családból származó író az amerikai SF új nemzedékéhez tartozik, aki a neves szerkesztő, Gardner Dozois szavai szerint „segített a zsánert a 21. században újrateremteni”. A Vezércsel a Locus magazintól elnyerte a legjobb első regény díját, de jelölték a rangos Hugo-, Nebula- és Arthur C. Clarke-díjakra is. „Lebilincselően érdekes katonai űropera. Kihagyhatatlan bemutatkozó regény.” – Stephen Baxter, az Antijég írója „Csodálatos és kegyetlen történet, amely bővelkedik spontán ötletekben.” – Alastair Reynolds Brit SF-díjas író

Yoon Ha Lee - Conservation of Shadows
There is no such thing as conservation of shadows. When light destroys shadows, darkness does not gain in density elsewhere. When shadows steal over earth and across the sky, darkness is not diluted... In this debut collection of short fiction from one of science fiction and fantasy’s most notable new writers, Yoon Ha Lee often integrates tropes of science fiction with elements of myth to create tales that are both wonderfully fresh and deeply ancient. No matter what the theme, her wide variety of stories are strikingly original and always indelible.
