This is a review of the Strange Worlds case. I love this box and I've gained a greater appreciate for science fiction and fantasy since I started receiving it. I was a fan of the genre before, but I've gotten some really great books from BookCase.Club and love it even more now!

First up is The Fall by R. J. Pineiro. I'll pick up any book about space, no matter how far-fetched the plot is. Here is the synopsis from Amazon for this title:
Jack Taylor has always been an adrenaline junkie. As a federal contractor, he does dangerous jobs for the government that fall out of the realm of the SEALS and the Marines. And this next job is right up his alley. Jack has been assigned to test an orbital jump and if it works, the United States government will have a new strategy against enemy countries.

Jack wakes up in an alternate universe. One where he died during a mission five years earlier and where Angela is still madly in love with him. But in this world, his boss, Pete, has turned to the dark side, is working against him, and the government is now on his tail. Jack must return to his own world but the only way for him to do that is to perform another orbital jump. This time is more difficult though―no one wants to see him go.

The case also featured The Iron Wyrm Affair by Lilith Saintcrow. From the cover I guessed it was a steampunk story, and here's what Amazon has to say:
Emma Bannon, forensic sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn't help much that they barely tolerate each other, or that Bannon's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen.

In an alternate London where illogical magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head, Bannon and Clare now face hostility, treason, cannon fire, black sorcery, and the problem of reliably finding hansom cabs.

Bottom Line: This was a great selection from BookCase.Club! Both books definitely feature some fantastical plots and I'm excited to dig in to them.
