The Time Museum by Matthew Loux
(First Second 21 February 2017 / $14.99) - Product Description: The internship program at the Time Museum is a little unusual. For one thing, kids as young as twelve get to apply for these prestigious summer jobs. And as for the applicant pool...well, these kids come from all over history.
When Delia finds herself working at the Time Museum, the last thing she expects is to be sent on time-traveling adventures with an unlikely gang of kids from across the eons. From a cave-boy to a girl from the distant future, Delia's team represents nearly all of human history! They're going to need all their skills for the challenge they've got in store...defending the Time Museum itself! (see review)
Drive by Dave Kellett
(Small Fish Studios 23 February 2017 / $50.00 / $25.00) - Book Description: DRIVE is my favorite kind of sci-fi: Hilarious characters in a serious story. A mashup of Hitchhiker's Guide and Dune, if you will.
It's placed in a Second Spanish Empire — a galactic empire — which finds itself staring down a war with an alien race called "The Continuum of Makers". Humanity has built its empire using technology stolen from the Makers, and these creatures want it back with an almost religious fervor. In the brewing war, it's clear that humanity will lose — and lose badly — unless they can find some advantage in battle. That hope arrives in the form of a tiny, mysterious creature who can drive a starship like no one's ever seen. Now all humanity needs to do...is find 10,000 more pilots just like him. But no one knows where he's from.
