Local author and friend of Mysterious Galaxy, Greg van Eekhout is the author of the middle-grade novels Kid vs. Squid and Boy at the End of the World and the mythological fantasy novel Norse Code, as well as about two-dozen short stories. His latest is California Bones, the first in a contemporary fantasy trilogy in which Daniel has ingested kraken spine that affords him magic layered deep within his bones. He and his equally gifted friends are on a quest to retrieve Daniel’s dead father’s sword, an object of untold power. Stop by and help us celebrate this much anticipated book launch with Greg. There will be pizza!

Osteomancy: Consume something or someone’s bones (and sometimes flesh) and gain their power (yum). For Daniel Blackland of the City of Los Angeles in the Kingdom of Southern California, this is a way of life, and of death.  Daniel has been living off the grid ever since he witnessed his father’s murder (and subsequent consumption) by the oh-so evil Heirarch (yum). Now his godfather has presented him with an offer he can’t refuse. He must breach the unbreachable and retrieve, among other things, an unfinished sword: his father’s legacy … a sword made of Daniel himself. 

California Bones is for people who like Jim Butcher, Richard Kadrey, and maybe a little Scott Lynch and James Ellroy on the literary side, and then a bit of Ocean’s Eleven and a dash of Silence of the Lambs (yum) for the cinematic side. You’ll love this gem. I feel it in my bones.
