Space Unicorn Blues by TJ Berry The Ark by Patrick S Tomlinson Free Chocolate by Amber Royer Hunger Makes the Wolf by Alex Wells The Wrong Stars by Tim Pratt
The Story: Fresh out of prison, a half-unicorn and his former captor form a misfit crew to race across the galaxy to prevent the genocide of magical creatures, in this unique science fiction debut. All humanity has left is one giant spaceship. Why do some of its inhabitants want to destroy it? A ex-sport star cop is assigned a missing persons case that threatens everyone. In the far future, chocolate is Earth’s sole unique product – and it’s one that everyone else in the galaxy would kill to get their hands, paws, and tentacles on. Change is coming to the corporate-owned Tanegawa's World when a mercenary biker gang makes contact with a strange, witchy magic in the desert. A ragtag crew of humans and posthumans discover alien technology that could change the fate of humanity or awaken an ancient evil and destroy all life in the galaxy.

Editorial Reviews


“Pure wish fulfilment. That is... assuming you wish to be a down-on-his-luck, half-unicorn space rogue, struggling to reclaim his starship and find his lost horn against an army of human oppressors who hold all the cards.”
G S Denning, author of the Warlock Holmes series

“It was a fun read with an entirely unique concept on a mashup of scifi and fantasy. The spin on the Bala being the key to the expansion of humankind - which then allowed humankind to subjugate the Bala - is the kind of sweet irony that mankind has displayed thousands of times over its history. It was a reminder that not all stories about unicorns have to have them spewing rainbows out of their asses, because sentience, no matter the form, always seems to bring about its own flavor of brutality. I never knew fairies and unicorns could be so dark. The book throws aside so many tropes and just does whatever the fuck it wants, inventing an entirely new world with new rules, and I am always in support of that.”
Joe Zieja, author of the Epic Failure trilogy

“Shut your brain off and go along for the wild ride... Berry deftly creates a diverse and representative universe full of all kinds of magical creatures and humans, a strange, wacky world.”
LA Times 

“Raucous space opera... Berry portrays the emotions powering bigotry with frightening accuracy in a novel that combines the best elements of mythological fantasy and space opera into a thrilling quest with deep shadows.”
– Publishers Weekly

“An energetic book that starts at high velocity and never lets up. Reading it is one of those “just one more chapter” experiences.”

“This delightfully weird science fantasy is a perfect escape read.”
– Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

“Flawless... another must-read from Angry Robot.”
– The Fantasy Inn

“This story was wonderfully well written, and it was paced really well. There was always something going on that made it hard to put down, and so I ended up reading it much faster than I anticipated. Well into the wee hours of the night, and well past the end of my lunch break at work.”
– Superstar Drifter

“Pick up a copy of Space Unicorn Blues for the strangest read all summer, but be warned that it’s pretty immersive. Everything about Space Unicorn Blues feels incredibly well-built and solid. It’s a delight for space opera junkies.”
– The Game of Nerds

“This book, THIS book, THIS BOOK. What do you get when you cross Star Trek with Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, a splash of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and any three of your favorite fantasy series? You get Space Unicorn Blues. Humorous and fun with a splash of commentary on human nature. You will LOVE these characters and hate these characters. I cheered and sobbed (literally) while reading about the aftermath of a war between humans and magical creatures (in space!)”
– Ouroboros Freelance

Space Unicorn Blues was an exciting adventure that tugged at my heart as often as it tickled my funny bone!”
– The Genre Minx
