Publishers Weekly Top 10 Best of the Year In her new collection, Story Prize finalist Maureen F. McHugh delves into the dark heart of contemporary life and life five minutes from now and how easy it is to mix up one with the other. Her stories are post-bird flu, in the middle of medical trials, wondering if our computers are smarter than us, wondering when our jobs are going to be outsourced overseas, wondering if we are who we say we are, and not sure what we'd do to survive the coming zombie plague. Praise for Maureen F. McHugh: "Gorgeously crafted stories."—Nancy Pearl, NPR "Hauntingly beautiful."—Booklist "Unpredictable and poetic work."—The Plain Dealer Maureen F. McHugh has lived in New York; Shijiazhuang, China; Ohio; Austin, Texas; and now lives in Los Angeles, California. She is the author of a Story Prize finalist collection, Mothers & Other Monsters, and four novels, including Tiptree Award-winner China Mountain Zhang and New York Times editor's choice Nekropolis. McHugh has also worked on alternate reality games for Halo 2, The Watchmen, and Nine Inch Nails, among others.

In a dark future world, a teenager fights to save herself and her neighbors from a government that wants to destroy them all . . . Humankind’s careless treatment of the planet has finally resulted in the death of nearly every living creature on Earth. The people who remain have been herded together into identical living “sectors” surrounded by impenetrable steel, and they’re forbidden to leave. Life is grim, but it goes on . . . until the new order decides to start the world over again. Sixteen-year-old Sia knows she has only fifteen days left to live. She’s seen what has happened in other sectors. First the government removes the elite few whom it has chosen to inhabit their new society. Then a cyborg army is sent in to annihilate the rest of the population. And Sia’s sector is next. Her father has virtually vanished. Her mother goes through these last days living in a haze of cheerless acceptance. Her best friend waits foolishly for a miracle. But Sia is determined to experience some of the small things she’s missed in her short life before the giant clock in the square ticks down to zero. Then Mace appears, a proud, dangerous boy with secrets that could change the world. And suddenly, there’s a dim light in the darkness, beckoning to Sia with the forbidden promise of rebellion . . . and hope. Fans of Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, and Pittacus Lore will enjoy this “chilling and all too plausible” story of a young woman persevering in the face of danger, and a terrifying future landscape that makes the worlds of Divergent and The Maze Runner seem like Disneyland (Emma Pass, author of ACID).

WHAT IF our 24-hour day grew longer, first in minutes, then in hours until day becomes night and night becomes day? 'It is never what you worry over that comes to pass in the end. The real catastrophies are always different - unimagined, unprepared for, unknown…' What if our 24-hour day grew longer, first in minutes, then in hours, until day becomes night and night becomes day? What effect would this slowing have on the world? On the birds in the sky, the whales in the sea, the astronauts in space, and on an eleven-year-old girl, grappling with emotional changes in her own life..? One morning, Julia and her parents wake up in their suburban home in California to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth is noticeably slowing. The enormity of this is almost beyond comprehension. And yet, even if the world is, in fact, coming to an end, as some assert, day-to-day life must go on. Julia, facing the loneliness and despair of an awkward adolescence, witnesses the impact of this phenomenon on the world, on the community, on her family and on herself. * '"Miracles' indeed. Karen Thompson Walker's debut novel is a stunner from the first page - an end-of-the-world, coming-of-age tale of quiet majesty. I loved this novel and can't wait to see what this remarkable writer will do next' Justin Cronin, author of The Passage

The world has gone to hell and it isn't coming back. It happened in a year: starvation, gangs of kids with guns, and every adult in the world dead from the Sickness. Houses are now mausoleums. Civilization lies in the hands of children who've never had to feed themselves or survive a winter without gas or electricity. Most will die. Others - a bare few - will tread a different path. Fourteen-year-old Jack Ferris is a survivor - because his parents raised him that way. Leveraging qualities rare for his age, he must lead his desperate companions to a secret refuge. Too late, he learns that safety is a mirage, and that the high price of hope is paid in blood. "An emotional and action filled post-apocalyptic story with unforgettable characters.
