SF STL Events

Introducting SF STL, a new science fiction and fantasy author event series presented by Left Bank Books and Archon!

 

Tuesday, May 8, 7pm
St. Louis Public Library - Schlafly Branch

Left Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with comic book writer Charles Soule, who will sign and discuss his debut novel, The Oracle Year, with local author Van Allen Plexico!

Knowledge is power. So when an unassuming Manhattan bassist named Will Dando awakens from a dream one morning with 108 predictions about the future in his head, he rapidly finds himself the most powerful man in the world.  With only a handful of people he can trust—including a beautiful journalist—it’s all Will can do to simply survive, elude exposure, and protect those he loves long enough to use his knowledge to save the world. Delivering fast-paced adventure on a global scale as well as sharp-witted satire on our concepts of power and faith, Marvel writer Charles Soule’s audacious debut novel takes readers on a rollicking ride where it’s impossible to predict what will happen next.

“Wildly entertaining . . . the relentless pacing, richly developed characters, and brilliant ending make this apocalyptic speculative thriller an undeniable page-turner.”
—Publishers Weekly

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of The Oracle Year from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

 

Thursday, May 10, 7pm
St. Louis Public Library - Schlafly Branch

Left Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL and Tor #FearlessWomen event with authors Tessa Graton, Sue Burke, and K. Arsenault Rivera, who will sign and discuss their new books The Queens of Innis Lear, Semiosis, and The Tiger's Daughter!

Inspired by Shakespeare's King Lear, dynasties battle for the crown in Tessa Gratton's debut epic adult fantasy, a story of deposed kings and betrayed queens for fans of Red Rising and Queen of the Tearling. The Queens of Innis Lear brings to life a world that hums with ancient magic, and characters as ruthless as the tides.

Sue Burke's Semiosis is a sweeping SF epic of first contact that spans generations of humans struggling to survive on an alien world. Colonists from Earth wanted the perfect home, but they’ll have to survive on the one they found. They don’t realize another life form watches . . . and waits.

K. Arsenault Rivera's lush new epic historical fantasy series evokes the ambition and widespread appeal of Patrick Rothfuss and the vivid storytelling of Naomi Novik. The Tiger's Daughter is the story of an infamous Qorin warrior, Barsalayaa Shefali, a spoiled divine warrior empress, O-Shizuka, and a power that can reach through time and space to save a land from a truly insidious evil.

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of one of the featured titles will be required to enter the signing line.
