SANTA FE AUTHOR CELEBRATES 3RD BOOK IN SCI-FI SERIES 3:00 PM SUNDAY, MARCH 22, AT PAGE ONE BOOKS
Science fiction/alternate history author S.M. Stirling of Santa Fe will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, March 22, to celebrate the release of the third book in his alternate World War series, "Shadows of Annihilation."
Stirling's latest effort is described as such: "The third novel in a World War I alternate history series where America's greatest weapon against Germany is Black Chamber secret agent Luz O'Malley and technical genius Ciara Whelan. Only they can protect America's best hope of winning the war. The Great War is at a stalemate, and the only thing stopping Germany from striking America is the threat of the United States using their own Annihilation Gas against them. But America's supply is quickly decaying and the Central Powers know it. A plant is under construction in the remote highlands of Mexico so that America can make their own supply. President Teddy Roosevelt assigns crack agent Luz O'Malley and her technical genius Ciara Whelan to watch over the plant operating under cover identities. But German agent Horst von Duckler has escaped from the POW camp in El Paso, and he's heading in the same direction--bent on revenge against Luz, and sabotage that will deprive America of its deterrent and kill tens of thousands."
Stirling is a French-born Canadian-American "New York Times" bestselling science fiction and fantasy author. A former lawyer and an amateur historian, he is probably best known for his "Draka" series of alternate history novels, and his later time travel/alternate history Nantucket series and Emberverse ("Change") series. The first book in his "Alternate World War" series, "Black Chamber," was released July 2018, and the second book, "Theater of Spies," was released last May. He lives in Santa Fe with his wife.
Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Stirling event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
