Holiday Gift Guide: Wild Cards 5!

Hello readers!

This is the last Wild Card post for the year! We’re still going strong on the Holiday Gift Guide, and you can still get all the Gift Guide books and the Wild Cards at 15% off until December 25th!

This last set is Allison’s and Megan’s picks, for the memoir, fantasy, and (of course) Star Wars fans on your lists!


In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado

9781644450031

Easily my top non-fiction read of the last five years. A unique blend of cathartic memoir and deep-dive essay on little-known areas of queer history and culture. Absolutely chilling and mesmerizing.

Witcher Boxset 

9780316438971

The Witcher series is dark Gothic fantasy at its finest, as well as the cultural product I’m most proud of as a Pole. Unlike all those Dragon Age and Halo books, these actually spawned the video game and not the other way around! Treacherous and powerful ladies, dank creatures, political intrigue! Give this to your cousin who has become increasingly listless since Game of Thrones ended.

Resistance Reborn by Rebecca Roanhorse

9780593128428

This book is being billed as required reading for anyone wanting to bridge the gap between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, and that is not wrong! It’s a celebration of everything that has come before, featuring old friends and new, a retrospective of hints and callbacks—but it’s also looking forward to the future, teasing at what is to come in the galaxy far away after the Skywalker Saga ends. Rebecca Roanhorse is a master of the tone and character of the franchise, making this book a joy to read for even the most casual of fans. Read this before the last movie comes out. You will not regret it.

This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

9781534431003

Time War is a 200-page prose poem, an epistolary masterpiece, a masterclass in allusion, a bending of the genre to create something that is intrinsically SFF and yet absolutely, gorgeously unique. It’s a time travel romance, yes, but it’s also a perfect cross-section of literature, poetry, science-fiction, and romance that gets under your skin and makes you think. This goes way beyond beautiful; it’s one of those books that reminds me that writing is also an art form.

–Megan
