SF STL Events

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

Monday, June 10, 7pm
Mad Art Gallery, 2727 S. 12th St.

Neal Stephenson, Fall; or Dodge in HellLeft Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with bestselling author Neal Stephenson, who will sign and discuss his new novel, Fall; or Dodge in Hell!

One autumn day, while multibillionaire Richard “Dodge” Forthrast undergoes a routine medical procedure, something goes irrevocably wrong. Dodge is pronounced brain dead and put on life support, leaving his stunned family and close friends with difficult decisions. In the coming years, technology allows Dodge’s brain to be turned back on, an achievement that is nothing less than the disruption of death itself. An eternal afterlife—the Bitworld—is created, in which humans continue to exist as digital souls. But this brave new immortal world is not the Utopia it might first seem. Paradise Lost by way of Phillip K. Dick, Fall, or Dodge in Hell is an exhilarating speculative literary saga for the modern age.

“Sometimes when you’re reading Neal Stephenson, he doesn’t just seem like one of the best novelists writing in English right now; he seems like the only one.”
—Lev Grossman

James S. A. Cory, Tiamat's WrathLeft Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with the bestselling writing duo behind James S. A. Corey, who will sign and discuss the eight book in The Expanse series, Tiamat's Wrath!

Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper. In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime.

"Corey deftly weaves multiple points of view to create a dense and colorful tapestry of political intrigue, personal relationships, and sophisticated technology that bursts with action but also delivers an introspective view of the characters as they age and reflect on their purpose and the value of their lives." —Booklist (starred review)

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Tiamat's Wrath from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
