From space opera to near future speculation, science fiction brings us futures beautiful and frightening. Take a look at our top picks for the best new science fiction books to read in June 2021 …

Star Eater by Kirsten Hall

Star Eater by Kerstin Hall

Type: Novel
Publisher: Tordotcom
Release date: June 22

Den of Geek says: Perhaps Octavia Butler started it, and Kameron Hurley and Rivers Solomon powered the next wave. It’s that side of science fiction that deals with reproduction and bodies and body horror, a goopy, weird exploration of humanity and power. At best, Star Eater will fit right into that conversation.

Publisher’s summary: Elfreda Raughn will avoid pregnancy if it kills her, and one way or another, it will kill her. Though she’s able to stomach her gruesome day-to-day duties, the reality of preserving the Sisterhood of Aytrium’s magical bloodline horrifies her. She wants out, whatever the cost.

So when a shadowy faction approaches Elfreda with an offer of escape, she leaps at the opportunity. As their spy, she gains access to the highest reaches of the Sisterhood, and enters a glittering world of opulent parties, subtle deceptions, and unexpected bloodshed.
