Astro-Nuts by Logan J. Hunder is the sort of story that may work a bit better on the screen (as a movie, television show, or anime) than on the page. Something about it simply didn’t work. I wasn’t quite as hooked as I thought I would be after the initial first chapter.

Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s novel Before the Coffee Gets Cold is a slight first volume in an ongoing series expertly translated from the Japanese by Geoffrey Trousselot. The entire story takes place within a certain coffee shop, the type of tiny, cozy place only known to locals. This shop is one filled with secrets, though. A ghost occupies a certain chair, drinking her coffee just as diligently in death as she did in life. People claim that on the rare occasion she leaves her seat, the new chair’s new occupant is able to go back in time and have one more conversation with a loved one.
