WALDEN POND BOOKS
WANTS YOU TO KNOW ABOUT:

ANCILLARY JUSTICE
wins the 2014
Hugo Award
"The mind-blowing space opera you've been needing. This is a novel that will thrill you like the page-turner it is, but stick with you for a long time afterward." i09.
"By turns thrilling, moving and awe-inspiring." The Guardian (U.K.).
"Assured, gripping and stylish. A space opera that skillfully handles both choruses and arias, Ancillary Justice is an absorbing thousand-year history, a poignant personal journey, and a welcome addition to the genre." NPR.

THE LUMINARIES
wins the 2013
Man Booker Prize
"Sometimes - rarely - a novel arrives that is so good all you can do is shake your head in wonder. Brilliant in design, masterful in execution, and intensely pleasurable to inhabit, The Luminaries is a masterpiece, the work of a writer of apparently limitless range and talent."

2013/2014 AWARD-WINNING BOOKS:
The Pulitzer, The National Book Award, The Man-Booker Prize, The Hugo, The Edgar, etc...
