Carter Scholz, GYPSY (PM Press, Trade Paperback, $13.00) Saturday, November 14th at 6:00pm. With guest Kim Stanley Robinson! - We're delighted to welcome the very talented Carter Scholz, one of the finest of the "writer's writers"! His new collection GYPSY, from PM Press, features the following wonders: "In the novella Gypsy, a small band of renegade scientists crowd-sources Earth's first starship in a desperate attempt to escape global catastrophe. Heartbreak and hope collide in this moving and visionary tale. "The Nine Billion Names of God" uses a classic SF text to deconstruct literary deconstruction itself, with hilarious results. In the wickedly droll "Bad Pennies," a spy tasked with trashing a foreign economy testifies before a complacent Congress. "The United States of Impunity" is an ironic salute to America's criminal overclass. Also featured is our Outspoken Interview, in which a postmodern Renaissance Man charts the synergies and dissonances of a career that embraces both literary and musical composition, reveals the hidden link between winemaking and deep space astronomy, and tells you how to steal his car." Carter will be joined by series contributor (and Hugo-, Nubula-. and World Fantasy Award-winning author) Kim Stanley Robinson.
Small Business Saturday with guest bookseller Richard Kadrey - Saturday, November 28th from 1:00 - 3:00 pm - Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and locally-owned, like Borderlands! This year we welcome author Richard Kadrey, who will be helping to make recommendations and signing books.
Mira Grant, CHIMERA (Orbit, Hardcover, $27.00) Saturday, December 5th at 3:00pm - We're happy to close the year with terrifying parasites & a visit from Mira Grant! From the book description: "The final book in Mira Grant's terrifying Parasitology trilogy. The outbreak has spread, tearing apart the foundations of society, as implanted tapeworms have turned their human hosts into a seemingly mindless mob. Sal and her family are trapped between bad and worse, and must find a way to compromise between the two sides of their nature before the battle becomes large enough to destroy humanity, and everything that humanity has built. . . . including the chimera. The broken doors are closing. Can Sal make it home?"
Sisters in Crime / Mystery Writers of America Northern California Holiday Party, Saturday, December 12th from 2:00 - 4:00 pm - Join us and more than two dozen fabulous local mystery writers for a fun holiday party! There will be light refreshments and the chance to mingle with, and get books signed by, fantastic authors! Don't miss this chance to meet so many authors all at the same time, and enjoy a rousing kick-off to the party season.
