Announcing two new Meetups for The Boston Sci-Fi/Fantasy Meetup Group!

#1:

What: Charles Stross Signing @ Pandemonium Books

When: Tuesday, July 13,[masked]:30 PM

Where:
Pandemonium Books & Games
4 Pleasant Street
Cambridge, MA 02139
[masked]

National bestselling author Charles Stross brings back Bob Howard-a British super spy with a long-term girlfriend, no fashion sense, and an aversion to martinis.

Bob Howard is taking a much needed break from the field to catch up on his filing in The Laundry's archives when a top secret dossier known as The Fuller Memorandum vanishes-along with his boss, who the agency's executives believe stole the file.

Determined to discover exactly what the memorandum contained, Bob runs afoul of Russian agents, ancient demons, and the apostles of a hideous faith, who have plans to raise a very unpleasant undead entity known as the Eater of Souls.

Charles Stross's website is at http://www.antipope.org/charlie/.

What: Naomi Novik Signing @ Pandemonium Books

Naomi Novik is coming to Pandemonium Books!

Her Temeraire series is set during an alternate history version of the Napoleonic Wars, in which dragons not only exist but are used as a staple of aerial warfare in Asia and Europe. The dragons of the story are portrayed as sentient and intelligent, capable of logical thought and human speech. The series centres primarily on events involving Temeraire (the titular dragon) and his handler, Will Laurence.

In the latest installation, Laurence and Temeraire (exiled to Australia) must navigate treacherous political waters to protect three dragon eggs.

Her website is http://www.temeraire.org/.

*****
I'm a big fan of Stross and Novik, so this is going to be a great week for me! Each signing starts at 7, so we'll meet up at Pandemonium Books at 6:30. Afterwards, we might try to grab a bite to eat in Central Square.
