A Best Book of the Month: Science Fiction & Fantasy


Buzz for Invasive Species

Invasive Cover

“Joseph Wallace re-births an ancient terror with creepy, pulse-pounding plausibility. His tale is just a few mutations away from coming true.”

—David Brin, Hugo- and Nebula Award-winning author of Existence

“If Wells’s Martians scared you, or the Body Snatchers, or the Alien films, you might want to read this one under the bed. Brilliant.”

—Jack McDevitt, Nebula Award-winning author of Echo, Cauldron, and Seeker

“Joseph Wallace’s Invasive Species cost me a perfectly good night’s sleep. This thief of a story, like its majizi, overwhelms and parasitizes quickly in its complete zombification of the host’s Self. This swift summoning hurtles the reader into the long dreaming days, the last terrifying madness confronted at your own mortal peril and the inevitability of death. What more could an infected host ask of a story? I hope Joe Wallace carries a screenplay of Invasive Species in his hip pocket; he’s going to need it.”

—Bill Ransom, author of Jaguar, ViraVax and Burn; coauthor (with Frank Herbert) of The Jesus Incident, The Lazarus Effect and The Ascension Factor

“Wallace’s unsettling, mind-bending apocalyptic novel chillingly dives into what happens when the balance of the world is disrupted and an invasive species grabs the reins. Terrifying and, yes, poetic, this is a novel that gets under your skin with an ‘it could happen here’ kind of chilling grace.”

—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and Is This Tomorrow

“A vivid detour into hell. It seems that Mr. Wallace would like us hiding under tables and calling for our mamas. Scary-good.”

—Luis Alberto Urrea, bestselling author of Queen of America and Into the Beautiful North

Buzz for Diamond Ruby

“Lively and entertaining…includes all sorts of colorful characters and fascinating social history. At its heart, Diamond Ruby is the story of an unassuming, courageous young woman who uses the national pastime to become a pioneering heroine in a man's world.”

—Howard Mosher, The Washington Post

“There are echoes of Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, but this story holds its own, allowing Diamond Ruby her place as a literary gem.”

—Library Journal (starred review)

“Ruby is a wonderful, memorable character, and Wallace’s prose is a perfect match for her.”

—Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of After I’m Gone an Life Sentences
