A House of Shattered Wings
by Aliette de Bodard
Paris has survived the Great Houses War Ė just. Its streets are lined with haunted ruins, Notre-Dame is a burnt-out shell, and the Seine runs black with ashes and rubble. Yet life continues among the wreckage. The citizens continue to live, love, fight and survive in their war-torn city, and The Great Houses still vie for dominion over the once grand capital. House Silverspires, previously the leader of those power games, lies in disarray. Its magic is ailing; its founder, Morningstar, has been missing for decades; and now something from the shadows stalks its people inside their very own walls. Within the House, three very different people must come together: a naive but powerful Fallen, a alchemist with a self-destructive addiction, and a resentful young man wielding spells from the Far East. They may be Silverspiresí salvation. They may be the architects of its last, irreversible fallÖ

On a Red Station, Drifting
by Aliette de Bodard
For generations Prosper Station has thrived under the guidance of its Honoured Ancestress: born of a human womb, the stationís artificial intelligence has offered guidance and protection to its human relatives. But war has come to the Dai Viet Empire. Prosperís brightest minds have been called away to defend the Emperor; and a flood of disorientated refugees strain the stationís resources. As deprivations cause the stationís ordinary life to unravel, uncovering old grudges and tearing apart the decimated family, Station Mistress Quyen and the Honoured Ancestress struggle to keep their relatives united and safe. What Quyen does not know is that the Honoured Ancestress herself is faltering, her mind eaten away by a disease that seems to have no cure; and that the future of the station itself might hang in the balanceÖ
