Robert J Sawyer ‘Red Planet Blues’ Book Tour

Robert J Sawyer will be coming to the store on Thursday March 28th at 7pm to do a reading and signing of his new book ‘Red Planet Blues’:

My name is Alex Lomax. I’m a P.I. working the mean streets of New Klondike, the domed Martian city that sprang to life in the wake of the booming fossil market. Roughly forty years ago, Simon Weingarten and Denny O’Reilly discovered evidence of ancient life on Mars, and these fossils quickly became valuable sought-after antiquities for collectors on Earth. Then the wannabe treasure hunters swarmed here, suffering from fossil fever, to take part in “the Great Martian Fossil Rush,” hoping to strike it rich.
So I ply my trade among the failed prospectors, corrupt cops, and “transfers” — folks wealthy enough to upload their consciousness into near-immortal android bodies — trying to make an honest buck in a dishonest world. But now the motherlode of all cold cases has just landed in my lap: the decades-old murders of Weingarten and O’Reilly — and God only knows what I may dig up…

“A terrific noir crime novel that is full of the wonders of Sawyer’s sci-fi world. In Red Planet Blues Sawyer has imagined, and written, his best book yet.” —Eric Wright
