CA – Rise of the King Signing

ras-rok

R.A. Salvatore appears at Mysterious Galaxy on Wednesday October 15, 2014 at 5:00 pm to sign Rise of the King!

In the second book of the Companions Codex, the latest series in the New York Times best-selling saga of dark elf Drizzt Do’Urden, R.A. Salvatore picks up with the fan-favorite storyline of dwarf king Bruenor Battlehammer and his bloody feud with the orc kingdom of Many Arrows.

About the Author
R.A. Salvatore was born in Massachusetts in 1959. His love affair with fantasy, and with literature in general, began during his freshman year of college when he was given a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings as a Christmas gift. He promptly changed his major from computer science to journalism. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications in 1981, then returned for the degree he always cherished, the Bachelor of Arts in English. He began writing seriously in 1982, penning the manuscript that would become Echoes of the Fourth Magic.

His first published novel was The Crystal Shard from TSR in 1988 and he is still best known as the creator of the dark elf Drizzt, one of fantasy’s most beloved characters. His novel The Silent Blade won the Origins Award, and Bob was the recipient of the prestigious Chandler Reward of Merit for his work in the field of young adult Literature. In the fall of 1997, his letters, manuscripts, and other professional papers were donated to the R.A. Salvatore Library at his alma mater, Fitchburg State College in Fitchburg, Massachusetts.

CA – Agent Scully Signs

Gillian_Anderson_ga-avof

Gillian Anderson appears at Mysterious Galaxy on Tuesday October 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm to sign A Vision of Fire!

This is a numbered event – numbers for the signing line are free with the purchase of A Vision of Fire from Mysterious Galaxy, available October 7th, starting at 10 AM!

If you are planning to attend the event, please do not place your order through the web site as all such orders are processed after the event. Instead, please contact the store and purchase the book on or after the on-sale date.

The first novel from iconic X-Files star Gillian Anderson and New York Times bestselling author Jeff Rovin: a science fiction thriller of epic proportions.

Renowned child psychologist Caitlin O’Hara is a single mom trying to juggle her job, her son, and a lackluster dating life. Her world is suddenly upturned when Maanik, the daughter of India’s ambassador to the United Nations, starts speaking in tongues and having violent visions. Caitlin is sure that her fits have something to do with the recent assassination attempt on her father—a shooting that has escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan to dangerous levels—but when teenagers around the world start having similar outbursts, Caitlin begins to think that there’s a more sinister force at work.

In Haiti, a student claws at her throat, drowning on dry land. In Iran, a boy suddenly and inexplicably sets himself on fire. Animals, too, are acting irrationally, from rats in New York City to birds in South America to ordinary house pets. With Asia on the cusp of nuclear war, Caitlin must race across the globe to uncover the mystical links among these seemingly unrelated incidents in order to save her patient—and perhaps the world.

OR – Wolf in White Van Signing

wwv

John Darnielle will be joined in conversation by Eisner Award–winning comic book writer Matt Fraction at Powell’s Books on Wednesday October 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm.

As the creator of a text-based role-playing game, Sean Phillips, isolated by a disfiguring injury since the age of 17, guides players from around the world through his intricately imagined terrain. An audacious and gripping debut novel from John Darnielle — front man for The Mountain Goats — Wolf in White Van (Farrar Straus Giroux) is a marvel of storytelling brio and genuine literary delicacy.
