Harper Voyager’s 2019 Titles

Greetings Voyagers, welcome to the new decade! As we start the new year, I thought it would a great time to look back at the books Harper Voyager has published in 2019. From a novella set in outer space written by Hugo Award-winning author, Becky Chambers to a novel set in New York City where Manhattan is split in half and your chance of survival depends on which side you reside on. In total, Harper Voyager has published 31 books in 2019—talk about book-mania! But here at Voyager, we want to take you to places you’ve never been; start new adventures; and experience the words that bring characters to life.

We, the Harper Voyager team, want to wish you an incredible year filled with plenty of books and stories to tell. I hoped you enjoyed diving into these novels as much as we enjoyed working on them! We are so grateful to have the talented team that we do, to be surrounded by magical stories, and have authors who take their art seriously, are full of passion, and willing to take risks. We hope you join us on our next journey, hold on tight for 2020 😊
