Summary: Dan Ackerman received the 2018-2019 Rainbow Award for Gay Contemporary General Fiction. Two titles shared the honor: The Things that Come and That Doesn’t Belong Here. Dan is a dominant, innovative, unique voice in LGBTQ fiction. Angels shouldn't pal around with demons, especially not ones they've been sent to assassinate. They shouldn't work with them or cook them dinner, or strike a deal with the Devil for them either. Sunshine probably isn't a very good angel. The demon in question is Felix Specter. He's forgiven Sunshine for stabbing him all those years ago. He's got a lot on his plate: a curse, his mental health, and a questionable love life. Finding out Sunshine owes the Devil a few favors doesn't help. Neither did that kiss, not that Felix will talk about it anyway. On top of everything else, Sunshine and Specter have a case to solve. They handle issues that human detectives can't, like monsters in the sewer, mages doing illegal charms, and runaway witches. But they've always dealt with anything the city has to offer. Would could be different this time?

Summary: ‘Old actors never die’ shouldn’t be literally true. Carrington Loveless III, skim-blood vampire and senior officer of Philly’s paranormal police department, has long suspected that someone’s targeting his squad. The increasingly bizarre and dangerous entities invading their city can’t be a coincidence. So when a walking corpse spouting Oscar Wilde attacks one of his officers, Carrington’s determined to uncover the evil mind behind it all. As a rare books librarian, Erasmus Graham thought he understood some of the stranger things in life. Sharing a life with Carrington has shown him he didn’t know the half of it. They’ve survived attack books and deadly dust bunnies together and got through mostly unscathed. Now his world and his vampire’s appear ready to collide again. Books are missing from the Rare Book collection—old tomes of magic containing dangerous summonings and necromancy. He’s certain whoever has been stalking the Seventy-Seventh is composing their end game. It’s going to take a consolidated effort from paranormal police, librarians and some not-quite-authorized civilians to head off the impending catastrophe.

Summary: THERE ARE REASONS WE FEAR THE NIGHT. HE’S NOT ONE OF THEM. Bill Ryder was a dateless dork, but then he met a girl to die for – so he did. Too bad his death is about to make his life a hell of a lot more interesting. Now he’s a vampire, surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier, and much cooler than he is. They’re giving him just ninety days to prove he has what it takes to be an apex predator of the night, assuming he doesn’t give them a reason to dust his ass sooner. Bill isn’t exactly average, though. A vamp like him hasn’t been seen in centuries. He’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, unexpected allies, and an attitude that makes him too obnoxious to quit. Good thing, too, because he’ll need all the help he can get if he wants to keep from dying – again. Join him in this hilarious tale of bloodthirsty monsters, gory mayhem, and an unlikely hero who, fangs or not, is still at the bottom of the food chain.

Summary: Queer Handmaid's Tale meets hyper-capitalist dystopia. Nonbinary, queer main character BREEDER is set in a distant but bleakly familiar future, where each person exists to repay Units to the violent Corporation. But girls and women can only be Breeders in this world, and can only repay the Corporation through reproduction. Is the price of survival worth the cost of submission? Will Meadows is a seemingly average fifteen-year-old Westie, who lives and works in Zone F, the run-down outermost ring of the Corporation. In the future state of the Corp, a person’s value comes down to productivity: the right actions win units, the wrong ones lose them. If Will is unlucky and goes into unit debt, there’s only one place to go: the Rator. But for Zone F Breeders, things are much worse—they’re born into debt and can only accrue units through reproduction. Every day in Zone F is a struggle, especially for Will who is fighting against time for access to an illegal medical drug, Crystal 8. Under the cover of night, Will travels to the Gray Zone, where life is less regulated and drugs—and people—are exchanged for gold. There, Will meets Rob, a corrupt member of the Corporation running a Breeder smuggling operation. Will also meets Alex, another teen whom he quickly recognizes as a Breeder in disguise. Suddenly, Will has an illicit job and money, access to Crystal, and a real friend. As the pair grows closer, Alex shares her secret: she is part of the Response, an uprising to overthrow the Corporation. Caught up in the new friendship, Will and Alex become careless as the two covertly travel into Zone B for a day of adventure. Nothing goes as planned and Will’s greatest fear is realized. Will his true identity be revealed?

Summary: I didn't think things could get worse… …but people started dying, and it was my fault. At first, I thought someone was playing a cruel trick on me, but that didn't explain the bizarre truth that defied scientific explanation: I had unwillingly become part of something ominous and evil. I'm not the kind of guy who cries often, and I'm certainly not a killer. I wouldn't even wish death upon my worst enemy, if I had one. But after losing two of my closest friends, I questioned my morals and beliefs: could I kill to survive? I didn't have time to mourn because I needed to discover where I fit in the supernatural world of Vampires, Lycan, and Spellcasters. If the crazy old priest and the Fae were right, then my place is second only to Lucifer Morningstar himself. Children of the Sun is the third book of The Snakeheart Series (Season 1), a supernatural novella series about Dante Coranguis and the ancient prophecy of the End Times.
