 In case "the first book in a trilogy set in fantasy Africa, by the Man Booker winning Marlon James" wasn't enough to hook you, this is also a novel that has shadowy roof walkers, lightning vampires, unreliable narrators, thoughtful exploration of gay sexuality, excellent cursing and one very smart buffalo. A mix of sword and sorcery and harrowing character drama, it's absolutely worth the investment of time and serious emotional anxiety it'll take to see it through.

At long last, the work of provocateur comics artist Shintaro Kago has been translated into English! Dementia 21 is a collection of stories featuring Yukie Sakai, a young and energetic caregiver who dedicates her life to helping the elderly. Even when the elderly begin to self-replicate...or develop psychic powers...or take over the minds of others through dentures. A brutally funny and irreverent take on how our society treats the old, and ourselves.
