Bakka-Phoenix Books -- Canada's Oldest Science Fic

We love to celebrate a new book – and this month we have approximately seven! With an action-packed fall coming up, here's what we'll be sending into the world in the next three weeks:

We're launching two – count 'em, two – pop culture companions on Saturday, September 26 at 3:00 pm: Graeme Burke and Robert Smith? delve into the world of Doctor Who with The Doctors Are In, and Nikki Stafford takes on the case of BBC's Sherlock in Investigating Sherlock. Drop by for snacks, signing, and a discussion by the authors about what makes your favourite BBC shows tick.

On Wednesday, September 30 we'll be closing at 5:00 pm for our traditional inventory night. Our favourite books are the ones we don't have to count, so please feel free to relieve us of a few ahead of the big night.

On Saturday, October 3, it is our absolute pleasure to launch Kate Blair's debut science fiction novel, Transferral, at 3:00 pm. Set in a modern-day London where scientists can transfer diseases from the sick to a willing – or unwilling – host, it's a thrilling look at what “deserve” means through the eyes of a sixteen-year-old protagonist who's asked to risk everything.

But don't throw it in after that, because the very next day, Sunday, October 4, we'll host two of Ontario's award-winningest YA authors as E.K. Johnston launches her poetic Arabian Nights-inspired fantasy, A Thousand Nights, alongside special guest Erin Bow, author of the chilling and brilliant science fiction novel The Scorpion Rules. Come by at 2:00 pm for some great discussion on worldbuilding, writing young adult genre fiction, and books full of goats.

On Saturday, October 10, Bakka Books alumnus and friend Tanya Huff will be here to launch a brand-new military SF series with An Ancient Peace. Set in her Confederation universe, the novel throws protagonist Torin Kerr into a race to find whoever's searching for ancient, planet-destroying weapons before they can kick off a devastating war. Festivities start at 3:00 pm; come by for reading, signing, and Tanya`s signature (hilarious) conversation.

Finally, Bakka-Phoenix staffer and author Leah Bobet (she's the tall one!) is launching her epic YA fantasy, An Inheritance of Ashes: a stark, literary fantasy which explores one family's attempt to keep their farm together in the aftermath of a war against a strange, dark god – a war that's far from over. The party's at D-Beatstro cafe and event space at 1292 Bloor Street West (Bloor and Lansdowne), and will go down on Thursday, October 15 at 7:00 pm. Join us there for music, delicious baked goods, reading, signing, raffle prizes, original art, and some special guests. Headcount matters, so RSVP at the Facebook event before the day of.


Phew. That`s a lot of books.

Hope to see you there!
