New releases

“Questionable Practices” by Eileen Gunn (Small Beer Press, $16) The noted Seattle science-fiction writer produces a compilation of stories — and a poem — that were originally published in magazines and on websites (two appear in this volume for the first time). Gunn has received the Nebula and Sense of Gender awards.

“Death Among the Ruins” by Pamela Christie (Kensington, $15) The second book in Christie’s historical mystery series offers new perspective on the excesses of the Regency era. The heroine, courtesan Arabella Beaumont, practices self-reliance during a period when women were expected to defer to men. Christie lives in Seattle, where she teaches English.

“Gone-Away-Mary” by Patricia Weenolsen (Rubythroat Press, $19.95) In another historical novel and the fourth of a series, Mary — a shaman, prophetess and seer — experiences a vision of Mary Magdalene and goes into the future to carry out missions. Weenolsen lives in Seattle.

“Pieces of Me” by Amber Kizer (Delacorte, $16.99) For ages 13-16: A dead narrator is nothing new in young-adult fiction. What’s unique about this novel is the original premise: deceased high schooler tells the stories of the four teens who receive her organ donations. Their lives soon intersect. The author lives in Langley.
