Next Summer's Reading List

While everyone else is busy buying sweaters and squirreling away acorns for the long winter, we at Tachyon are prepping up for summer 2011. Because if we don't, what would you read? You're welcome.

Here's a peek at what's coming up:

Promises to Keep, by Charles de Lint
May 2011
Jilly's best friend Donna from the bad old days takes Jilly into a beautiful mysterious city. It is a place full of wonderful opportunities and delights that at first seems perfect. But the journey was a one-way trip, and Jilly still has unfinished business in Newford. Available for the first time in trade paperback.

The Uncertain Places, by Lisa Goldstein
June 2011
A long-awaited new novel from American Book Award winner Lisa Goldstein. Will Taylor has fallen for the enigmatic Livvy Feierabend, but Livvy's family is behaving strangely. The Feierabend women seem to believe that luck is their handmaiden, based on a contract made with a powerful otherworldly force. Now Will must unravel the riddle of their bargain to save Livvy from an unfortunate destiny.

Future Media, edited by Rick Wilber
July 2011
This cutting-edge exploration of the mass-media age uniquely combines complex nonfiction and prescient fiction from the best and brightest visionaries of the future. Future Media not only entertains while it informs, it also challenges its readers, from teachers to students to science-fiction fans, to consider the implications for society of a mass media that is at once personal, public, pervasive, and powerful.
