Insane Clown President by Matt Taibbi

Subtitled "Dispatches from the 2016 Circus". November’s election results were shocking to most Americans - liberal or conservative. Each day we’re learning more and more about what President Trump and his administration have in store for us. But if you’re still processing what exactly went on the past year and a half during the election cycle, Matt Taibbi’s missives from the campaign trail will delight and inform.

Shelter by Jung Yun

Violence comes in many forms. Some we live with and replicate, and sometimes it is completely random. Is it ingrained within our culture? Do some cultures harbor it more than others? Kyung Cho grew up in Marlboro, MA after moving with his parents from Korea when he was a young boy. He married a non-Korean woman, whose father and brother are both police officers. They have a young son and are floundering financially. One day, while trying to figure out how to get out from the house they own but cannot afford, Kyung’s mom stumbles into the yard, completely naked.

Version Control by Dexter Palmer

How are our lives influenced by science and technology? What would happen if someone figured out how to create the ability to travel back to a fixed point in time - so that cause no longer preceded effect! Does the violation of the physical laws of conservation of mass and energy ever disturb you when you read about time travel? Wait, I’m making this sound like a very geeky book, and it’s not. Not at all. This is the story of a woman married to a man who is devoted to his work on a causality violation device (which he really does not like being called a time machine).

Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca

Grace Humiston was a New York lawyer and detective who became the first woman U.S.
