Michael Marshall Smith, HANNAH GREEN AND HER UNFEASIBLY MUNDANE EXISTENCE (HarperVoyager, Trade Paperback, $15.99) Saturday, November 10th at 3:00 pm - We couldn't be more excited to welcome Michael Marshall Smith!  We read and loved HANNAH GREEN in an advance copy, and we can't wait to host Mr. Smith so he can introduce you to HANNAH.  From the publisher: "There are a million stories in the world.  Most are perfectly ordinary. This one? isn't.  Hannah Green actually thinks her story is more mundane than most.  But she's about to discover that the shadows in her life have been hiding a world where nothing is as it seems: that there's an ancient and secret machine that converts evil deeds into energy, that some mushrooms can talk -- and that her grandfather has been friends with the Devil for over a hundred and fifty years, and now they need her help."  This is an unusual and brilliant novel, and there's even a guest appearance by the Giant Dipper coaster at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk!
