Published: Aladdin Paperbacks - December 1st, 2006

Inspired by her grandmother’s stories of growing up in Wisconsin in the mid-nineteenth century, the book’s heroine is a spunky girl who prefers having adventures with her brothers to learning how to become a “lady.”  Readers who share a kinship with Little Women’s Jo March or thrilled to the exploits of Laura Ingalls Wilder will also enjoy reading about how Caddie gets into and out of scrapes.

Published: Tor Books - April 11th, 2017

Not your typical pre-apocalyptic coming-of-age adventure romance set against an all-out war of science versus magic.  In any event, it totally deserves all the blurbs on the back cover.

Join four travelers -- an artist, a spy, a merchant and a pirate -- as they leave a Venice (that is not our Venice) to travel toward a Constantinople (that is not our Constantinople) in an epic confrontation between East and West. Kay imagines a fantastical history in a world almost, but not quite, like ours.

Three words:  Lesbian.  Mad.  Scientists.
If that isn't enough to convince you to buy this book immediately, then try out “Meddling Kids” or “Bank Job Blues” or “The Ice Weasels of Terbizond.”  From sly pop culture references to 1930s noir to steampunk, these eighteen stories contain a little of everything, with a Sapphic twist.

A wild, intoxicating retelling of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" fairy tale, set in Manhattan during the Roaring Twenties.  Be prepared to stay up all night not dancing, but rather reading this novel about sisterhood, speak-easies, and not-so-high society.

Published: Candlewick Press (MA) - September 13th, 2016

I have waited two years to read this book, ever since I heard the author read the introductory chapter at Readercon.  Sherman does not disappoint in this novel about a secluded Maine village, an evil (?) wizard, his runaway apprentice, a motorcycle werewolf gang, and (best of all) an enchanted bookstore.
