Best science fiction and fantasy books out this month

Comic-book artist Prentis Rollins uses art and words to tell a vivid cautionary tale about technology gone awry. Walton Honderich, a former physicist, is visiting New York City in the year 2052 with his wife and young daughter when he is nearly unraveled by the sight of a floating drone on the snowy streets of the city. In a hotel room one morning, he begins to tell his daughter about his complicity in a prison program that assigned a drone to released criminals. It rendered the convicts invisible and unable to communicate with the outside world, but free to move about in it. After 20 years, Honderich can see what he and a friend have wrought ‘ and is terrified. Told almost entirely in flashback and through conversations, the book is a haunting work of science fiction.

Here’s 12 fantastic science fiction and fantasy novels that you should check out this July

Robots are a regular staple in science fiction, from Isaac Asimov’s book I, Robot to the latest episode of Westworld. So while I was at an event in Boston, I picked up Generation Robot: A Century of Science Fiction, Fact, and Speculation by Terri Favro. It’s an interesting and funny book about the intersection of science fiction and reality, and Favro blends memoir, tech reporting, and even a bit of science fiction to look at where robots have come from, and where they could be going in the coming decades. It’s a quick, light read, and it’s a good chaser to Paul Scharre’s fantastic Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War
