“The debut of an electric literary talent. Brilliantly quirky, often moving, always gorgeously told….Bravo for this fabulous American fiction!” —Chang-Rae Lee, New York Times bestselling author of Native Speaker “A wonderful story collection that’s as wide and rich and complex as the geography it spans.” — Ben Fountain, PEN/Hemingway award-winning author of Brief Encounters with Che Guevera “Tenorio is a deep and original writer, and Monstress is simply a beautiful book.” —Jessica Hagedorn, author of Dogeaters A luminous collection of heartbreaking, vivid, startling, and gloriously unique stories set amongst the Filipino-American communities of California and the Philippines, Monstress heralds the arrival of a breathtaking new talent on the literary scene: Lysley Tenorio. Already the worthy recipient of a Pushcart Prize, a Whiting Writer’s Award, and a Stegner Fellowship, Tenorio brilliantly explores the need to find connections, the melancholy of isolation, and the sometimes suffocating ties of family in tales that range from a California army base to a steamy moviehouse in Manilla, to the dangerous false glitter of Hollywood.

The critically acclaimed, sell-out hit HEATHEN, from writer-illustrator, Natasha Alterici, continues in Volume 2. Aydis the banished viking sets sail on the open sea to reach Heimdall, the magical entrance to the land of the gods. She'll need the help of a crew of worldly pirate women and man-eating mermaids to survive the dangerous journey. Back on land, the cursed Valkyrie Brynhild and the goddess of love Freyja are chipping away at Odin's power, testing the god-king's patience and tempting his wrath. Collects issues 5 through 8. REVIEWS: IGN -- "Heathen returns from its break and it remains one of the best comics on the stands... I just want to spend more time in this world, and really, isn't that the reaction you should have to art?" ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY -- Alterici's innovative saga - about a queer Viking woman who is exiled for her sexuality and reacts by declaring war on Odin himself - initially came out in digital form only. Now, interested readers can catch up on the story's beginning in one place with its first trade collection. THE A/V CLUB -- The series operates on two levels: It's a sweeping Nordic fantasy, but it's also a personal story about coming out and coming of age in a culture that doesn't accept who you truly are. The intersection of those two narrative planes is what makes Heathen so engrossing, and the grander elements of the plot have more emotional impact because they are tied to Aydis' queer awakening. COMIC BASTARDS -- Hot take alert: Natasha Alterici is the real deal. BITCHMEDIA -- Alterici is that rarest of comic writers whose sense of story and pacing is equal to her tremendous artistic skill.

“Readers of early Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, and the best thrillers out there should try Liu now.” —Publishers Weekly “Anyone who loves my work should love [Lui’s].” —Christina Feehan Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu’s magnificent Dirk and Steele novels are the gold standard of paranormal romance fiction. Stepping briefly away from her unique detective agency of shapeshifters, psychics, and extraordinary beings, Lui enters the dangerous shadows of Crimson City with A Taste of Crimson. Set in a dark and twisted version of Los Angeles—a “City of Angels” from which the angels have long since fled—A Taste of Crimson has a beautiful creature of the night teaming up with an enemy, a slayer, to get to the root of an impending catastrophe that threatens to shatter a tentative peace between humans, vampires and werewolves. A breathtaking blend of sensuous romance with superior urban fantasy in the bestselling vein of Jeaniene Frost and Nalini Singh, A Taste of Crimson is a satisfying feast for every paranormal fan. Perhaps Booklist put it best: “If you have yet to add Liu to your must-read list, you’re doing yourself a disservice.”

A work of intimacy, beauty, and powerful self-expression, Part Asian, 100% Hapa is the book Fulbeck says he wishes he had growing up. An introduction to the rest of the world and an affirmation for Hapas themselveswho now number in the millions—it offers a new perspective on a rapidly growing population.
