With the heat of summer stubbornly dissipating, fall is sticking its head out around the corner just ahead. With this change of season that harkens to more wintry climes comes a bevy of options for those of us who crave entertainment of the fantastical or speculative variety. The autumn literary landscape is teeming with all manner of fantasy and sci-fi – not to mention a ton of cinematic and television offerings – and figuring out what merits your attention can be a tad daunting. Have no fear, loyal denizens of these Unbound Worlds: We’ve got you covered. It’s a busy stretch to the end of 2016 – and here’s a great selection of books, television, and movies that has us excited as all get out.


Magic Binds

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews
On Sale: September 20

A kick-ass female protagonist, a modern-day Atlanta ravaged by magic, romance and adventure – what’s not to love about Ilona Andrews’s Kate Daniels urban fantasy series? Expect more of the same with a twist, as always, when Magic Binds hits the shelves and an apocalyptic prophecy turns Kate’s world upside down.

A Night Without Stars

A Night Without Stars: A Novel of the Commonwealth by Peter F. Hamilton
On Sale: September 27

Sure to be filled with the dense plotting, high concept speculative science, and thrilling suspense that has become Hamilton’s trademark, A Night Without Stars promises a stunning conclusion to the war between the humans of Bienvenido and the Fallers.

Morning Star

Morning Star: Book III of the Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown
On Sale: September 27

Following the stunning conclusion of Golden Son, Darrow’s path of vengeance is set. In the final book in Pierce Brown’s Red Rising Trilogy, expect the author’s kinetic prose, trademark set-pieces, and brutal betrayals to play centerpiece.

Fever Code

The Fever Code (Maze Runner: Book Five) by James Dashner
On Sale: September 27

After four books of intrigue, misdirects, and shocking twists, James Dashner is finally pulling back the curtain on WICKED and how Thomas created the Maze. The answers are finally here – the truth behind Group B, the significance of the Gladers, and the side on which Thomas really resides.

Crooked Kingdom

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
On Sale: September 27

In Six of Crows, master thief Kaz Brekker and company managed to pull off a nearly impossible heist, but some time to rest? It’s not in the cards. War is breaking out in the streets of Ketterdam and Kaz and his tenuous band of allies are at its center. Leigh Bardugo is far from finished with the world she created in the Grisha Trilogy.

Luke Cage

“Luke Cage” on Netflix
Premieres: September 30

Marvel has been knocking it out of the park with their Netflix series so far and we expect no less when “Luke Cage” makes its premiere. Although fans have already seen Cage as a pivotal part of “Jessica Jones,” this solo series will explore Cage’s origin and move out of Hell’s Kitchen to the streets of Harlem. If this trailer is any indication, we’re in for something outstanding.

Miss Peregrine

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” in theaters

Premiered: September 30

Based on the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs, this much-anticipated adaptation is finally making its way to the screen. Between the haunting photographs peppered throughout the novel and Riggs’s cinematic prose, it was no surprise when Fox snapped up the rights. Here’s hoping the long-awaited film will mark a return to form for director Tim Burton; the source material will certainly set him up nicely for success.
