Join creator Alison Wilgus at Books with Pictures on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 from 6 PM – 8 PM for her very first Portland event: a launch party for her solo graphic novel debut: Chronin Volume 1: The Knife at Your Back, the first half of a queer historical SF duology from Tor Books. Come join us for drinks, snacks, good company, and celebrating a book that was a decade in the making!
Chronin follows Mirai Yoshida, a student of a prestigious college program which uses time travel to study the past. She spends her freshman preparing to visit Japan in 1864, but everything changes once she actually goes back in time. Mirai and her classmates are ambushed by rebel samurai; her friends are killed, her time travel machine is lost, and Mirai ends up marooned. In order to survive, she disguises herself as a wandering samurai and is hired by Hatsu, a tea waitress, as bodyguard for her travels. Mirai has to find her way back to the future soon, or else she may be the first casualty on the bloody front lines of a conflict that is destined to shape a nation.
