The annual LOCUS Recommended Reading List is out. As always, there’s a ton of great stuff on there. The list typically makes us feel under-read and frankly more than a little lazy.

Glabrio knelt at the shoreline, washing his bearded face in the wine-dark sea, when he heard the enemy skyship give one final groan. Two hundred yards away the metallic red hulk was still smoking, half-submerged in the Mediterranean like an unsightly island, one wing jutting to the heavens, the forked tail like a wishbone. Then …

“A Reason to Fear Life, a Reason to Crave Death” by Andrew Kaye

I. A bitter wind whipped around Ortega’s body, dusting him with a flurry of ash. He cursed. The words were lost, drowned in the whirr of stabilizers and the whine of steam turbines. Ortega drew his coat in tighter, pulled his scarf up over his face. Another, stronger gust caused the freighter to lurch, and …
