Ferrett Steinmetz is embarking on a bit of tour to promote his new novel, Fix, the third in his ‘Mancer trilogy. Described by the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog as “what might result if you put Breaking Bad and Reddit in a blender and hit ‘frappe’” this is a series that needs to be consumed.
Here’s the synopsis:
“America’s long sent its best SMASH agents overseas to deal with the European crisis. As of today, they decided dismantling your operation was more important than containing the Bastogne Broach. Now you’re dealing with the real professionals.”
Paul Tsabo: Bureaucromancer. Political activist. Loving father. His efforts to decriminalize magic have made him the government’s #1 enemy – and his fugitive existence has robbed his daughter of a normal life.
Aliyah Tsabo-Dawson: Videogamemancer. Gifted unearthly powers by a terrorist’s magic. Raised by a family of magicians, she’s the world’s loneliest teenager – because her powers might kill anyone she befriends.
The Unimancers: Brain-burned zombies. Former ‘mancers, tortured into becoming agents of the government’s anti-‘mancer squad. An unstoppable hive-mind.
When Paul accidentally opens up the first unsealed dimensional broach on American soil, the Unimancers lead his family in a cat-and-mouse pursuit all the way to the demon-haunted ruins of Europe – where Aliyah is slowly corrupted by the siren call of the Unimancers…
Ferrett will be appearing at Pandemonium Bookstore this Sunday, Sept 4 at 2:00PM EST. He will be signing copies of Fix (and Flex and The Flux too, we’ll wager) and for fans of Magic: the Gathering, he’ll be talking about that, too.
To register your interest there’s a handy little Facebook event page right here.
Here’s your handy map to help you find the store, if needed:
Keep your eyes out for more Ferrett signings, as he’ll be taking a trip across the country in late September. Seattle and similar, he’s coming for y’all.
