#PubDay (3/19/19)

A kick-butt female vigilante, a speculative SF novella collection, and a debut love letter to Chicago and its people join us to celebrate #pubday!

SAVE ME FROM DANGEROUS MEN by S. A. Lelchuk

Two starred reviews!

“This intelligent, action-packed thriller will resonate with readers as it touches on such themes as domestic violence, the widening gap between rich and poor, and the intrusive potential of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence. A credible plot and solid prose are pluses, but the book’s real appeal stems from its powerful, distinctive protagonist.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Nikki’s fight scenes are satisfying, clever, and exciting…. Bookworms will love the references to classic novels, and Lelchuk winks at Nikki’s similarities to a certain well-known literary vigilante; a bookshop regular even calls her Lisbeth. A timely and totally badass debut.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

RADICALIZED by Cory Doctorow

Two starred reviews!

“Doctorow’s combination of cutting edge speculation and deep interest in the social and political possibilities of the future makes this collection a must-read for fans of Kim Stanley Robinson or of any sf in which the future is always part of an engaged and passionate dialogue with the present.”–Booklist, starred review

“The near futures Doctorow (WALKAWAY) portrays in these stories are chilling in their possibility and will draw in any sf reader who imagines what might happen if our current situations remain unchanged. Highly recommended.”–Library Journal, starred review

MAKE ME A CITY by Jonathan Carr

A Library Journal Winter/Spring 2019 Best Debut!

“Carr’s intricately woven debut evokes the history of nineteenth-century Chicago while showcasing important but little-known historical figures and fictional people from different walks of life who contribute to its development…. Ambition, injustice, and opportunity all play roles as Chicago expands outward and upward. Over time, the disparate stories, which span the entire century, intersect in delightfully unexpected ways.”–Booklist
