NEW MEXICO SCI-FI AUTHORS CELEBRATE NEW RELEASES SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, AT PAGE ONE BOOKS
New Mexico authors Reese Hogan and J. Barton Mitchell, who have both produced military-oriented science fiction set on other worlds, join forces 4:00 pm Saturday, September 14, to talk about and sign "Shrouded Loyalties" and "The Razor," respectively.
Hogan's first novel under a traditional publisher is described as such: "A soldier returns home with a dangerous secret from an alternate realm, unaware that she is surrounded by spies and collaborators, in this intense military science fiction novel. Naval officer Mila Blackwood is determined to keep her country’s most powerful secret – shrouding, the ability to traverse their planet in seconds through an alternate realm – out of enemy hands. But spies are everywhere: her submarine has been infiltrated by a Dhavnak agent, and her teenage brother has been seduced by an enemy soldier. When Blackwood’s submarine is attacked by a monster, she and fellow sailor, Holland, are marked with special abilities, whose manifestations could end the war – but in whose favor? Forced to submit to military scientists in her paranoid and war-torn home, Blackwood soon learns that the only people she can trust might also be the enemy."
Mitchell's "The Razor" is teased as such: "(It's) a riveting science fiction thriller about a man struggling to survive the chaos on a prison planet. Brilliant engineer Marcus Flynn has been sentenced to 11-H37 alongside the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals. A hard labor prison planet better known as the Razor, where life expectancy is short and all roads are dead ends. At least until the Lost Prophet goes active… In a few hours, prison guards and staff are evacuated, the prisoners are left to die, and dark mysteries begin to surface. Only Flynn has the skills and knowledge to unravel them, but he will have to rely on the most unlikely of allies--killers, assassins, pirates and smugglers. If they can survive each other they just might survive the Razor…and claim it for their own."
Hogan loves nothing more than creating broken relationships in broken worlds. With a Bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in journalism, Hogan has spent the last 20 years honing her craft by taking classes, listening to podcasts, and attending writing workshops and critique groups. She is passionate about music, especially alternative and punk rock, and adamantly believes that art can reach out in a way no other form of communication can. She lives with her family in the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho area.
Mitchell is a creator and writer of speculative fiction, and the author of the science fiction YA novel series "Conquered Earth" (published by St. Martin’s Press). He has sold screenplays to Warner Bros. and 21st Century Fox, and created the comic book series "Poe" for Boom Studios. His novel "Valley of Fires," was awarded best science fiction novel of 2014 by the RT Book Review., He lives somewhere in the Santa Fe area.
