In Timothy Zahn‘s Judgment at Proteus (Tor), the Quadrail that connects the 12 civilizations of our galaxy has been the locus of a battle for dominance fought mostly unnoticed by humankind. But Frank Compton of Earth, who has fought on the front lines, discovers that the Shonkla’raa, an ancient enemy thought to be long dead, is rising again. If Compton can’t stop them, the Shonkla’raa will decimate all who oppose them, destroying the Quadrail and billions of lives.

OR – Alif the Unseen Signing

Author G. Willow Wilson signs at Powell’s Books on Monday, July 9th at 7:30PM.

In an unnamed Middle Eastern security state, Alif, a young Arab-Indian hacker, protects watched groups from surveillance and tries to stay out of trouble. As the book opens, Alif’s computer has been breached by the Hand, the state’s electronic security force, and the woman Alif loves has jilted him for a prince. When it turns out that the prince is the Hand, and the state security forces come after Alif, he must go underground, all while trying to fight back against a piece of code the Hand is using to create the most sophisticated state surveillance ever developed. Reminiscent of the novels of Neal Stephenson, Philip Pullman, and Neil Gaiman, Alif the Unseen (Grove) is a sophisticated blend of philosophy, technology, and spirituality disguised as an irresistible page-turner.

OR – Ready Player One Signing

Author Ernest Cline signs at Powell’s Books on Tuesday, June 19th at 7:00PM.

At once wildly original and stuffed with ’80s nostalgia, Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One (Broadway), now in paperback, is an ambitious and spectacularly genre-busting debut novel that’s part quest, part love story, and part virtual space opera, set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

OR – Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt Signing

Joe Sacco and Chris Hedges sign at Powell’s on Monday, June 25th at 7:30PM.

In Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt (Nation Books), Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges and American Book Award-winning cartoonist Joe Sacco present a searing portrait of an American underclass in crisis. Reporting from the coal fields of West Virginia, from Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, from undocumented farm worker colonies in California, and from Camden, New Jersey, the poorest city in the nation, Hedges and Sacco warn of a bleak near future — where cities and states fall easily into bankruptcy, neofeudalism reigns, and the nation’s working and middle classes are decimated. A shocking report from the frontlines of poverty in America, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt is a clarion call for reform.
