Marina Lostetter will sign and discuss Noumenon (Voyager; $15.99).
The open skies and dense forests of the Pacific Northwest are ideal for growing speculative fiction authors--or, at least, Marina J. Lostetter would like to think so. Originally from Oregon, she now resides in Arkansas with her husband, Alex. When not writing or drawing she can often be found reading spec-fic, or playing it (she enjoys a good zombie-themed board game now and again). And she does it all while globetrotting.
"Futurist as provocateur The world is sheer batshit genius . . . a truly hallucinatorily envisioned environment."--William Gibson, New York Times bestselling and award-winning author
"I can't wait to read what happens next."--James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author
"Patrick Hemstreet's debut, THE GOD WAVE, is a bombshell of a thriller full of everything I love: complicated characters, dynamic plotting, all set against a backdrop of a fantastic scientific premise. Here is a novel that demands to be read in one sitting, while leaving a lasting impact afterward.
With nods to Arthur C. Clarke's Rama series and the real science of Neal Stephenson's Seveneves, a touch of Hugh Howey's Wool, and echoes of Octavia Butler's voice, a powerful tale of space travel, adventure, discovery, and humanity that unfolds through a series of generational vignettes.
