Connie Willis has a new book, and she will be discussing and signing Blackout at MG on Wednesday, February 3, at 7:00 PM. In her first new novel in seven years, Connie delves into time travel, war, and the actions of individuals that shape history. It’s a working chaos as usual, and time-traveling historians are leaving the Oxford of 2060 for a variety of significant times and events, when suddenly, assignments are canceled. It appears that the reliable mechanisms of time travel may be suffering difficulties, and that the belief that historians cannot alter the past may be wrong. Companion novel All Clear will follow in Fall 2010.
This is a numbered event. Numbers for the signing line are available with purchase of Blackout from Mysterious Galaxy, on sale beginning Tuesday, February 2. Other restrictions may apply, and are subject to change. Contact staff for details.
If you are planning to attend the event, please do not place on-line orders as all such orders are processed for shipment or held for customers after the event.
For nearly a decade, Willis has dazzled readers with her short fiction. Her first novel, Lincoln's Dreams, received unanimous high praise and won the John W. Campbell Award. Now she pens a sensational work about human struggle and redemption set in the time of the Black Plague.
