SF STL Events

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


Thursday, July 26, 7pm
Left Bank Books

Bryan Camp, City of Lost FortunesLeft Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with author Bryan Camp, who will sign and discuss his debut novel, The City of Lost Fortunes!

The fate of New Orleans rests in the hands of a wayward grifter in this novel of gods, games, and monsters. The post–Katrina New Orleans of The City of Lost Fortunes is a place haunted by its history and by the hurricane’s destruction, a place that is hoping to survive the rebuilding of its present long enough to ensure that it has a future. Street magician Jude Dubuisson is likewise burdened by his past and by the consequences of the storm, because he has a secret: the magical ability to find lost things, a gift passed down to him by the father he has never known—a father who just happens to be more than human.
 

"A phantasmagoric murder mystery that wails, chants, laments, and changes shape as audaciously as the mythical beings populating its narrative....boisterously ingenious debut novel." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of The City of Lost Fortunes from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Left Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with bestselling Welcome to Night Vale author Joseph Fink, who will sign and discuss his new novel, Alice Isn't Dead!

Keisha Taylor lived a quiet life with her wife, Alice, until the day that Alice disappeared. After months of searching, presuming she was dead, Keisha held a funeral, mourned, and gradually tried to get on with her life. But that was before Keisha started to see her wife, again and again, in the background of news reports from all over America. Alice isn’t dead, and she is showing up at every major tragedy and accident in the country. Following a line of clues, Keisha takes a job with a trucking company, Bay and Creek Transportation, and begins searching for Alice. She eventually stumbles on an otherworldly conflict being waged in the quiet corners of our nation’s highway system—uncovering a conspiracy that goes way beyond one missing woman.

“This is a splendid, weird, moving novel…It manages beautifully that trick of embracing the surreal in order to underscore and emphasize the real - not as allegory, but as affirmation of emotional truths that don’t conform to the neat and tidy boxes in which we’re encouraged to house them.” —NPR.org (Welcome to Night Vale)

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Alice Isn't Dead from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. Pre-order your copy here!
