Holiday Party 2018

Holiday Party 2018

Come help celebrate a Holiday Tradition with Mysterious Galaxy’s Seasonal Party! Readers and lovers of anything literary can look forward to enjoying refreshments and delicious foods while mingling with authors whose works run the diverse gamut of genre (and gift giving opportunity) needs. Staff will be readily available to make recommendations from our plethora of both books and creative gift items. We even have an in-store Staff Picks section, as well as many other books that have been read and reviewed by Mysterious Galaxy’s own.

More than a dozen authors covering a wide range of genres will be highlighted during the Seasonal Party.

If you’re looking for stories with a diverse cast of characters, Chaya Bhuvaneswar’s short-story collection, White Dancing Elephants, spotlights resolute women of color who face issues like sexual harassment and violence.

Readers of YA fiction can look forward to stories like Livia Blackburne’s historical fantasy, Umbertouched, and Maria Alexander’s second novel in the Bloodline of Yule series, Snowbound.

Everyone needs a little humor in their lives. Richard Lederer’s The Joy of Names explores the history of how many well-known names, surnames, and nicknames came to be, all while having a laugh. Dante Fabiero’s series of comics, Slothilda: Living the Sloth Life, tells the story of an adorable sloth and her all-too-real struggles through everyday life.

For fans of a good mystery, check out Nancy Cole Silverman’s cozy amateur sleuth novel, Reason to Doubt, Sybil Johnson’s Designed for Haunting, or Ellen Byron’s Mardi Gras Murder. If you’re in the mood for some classic crime stories, Leslie Klinger presents five of the best novels for the time period in his anthology, Classic American Crime Fiction of the 1920s. In the mood for a psychological thriller? Martin Jay Weiss’ The Second Son is filled with plenty of twists and turns wrapped up in a technothriller-bow, while Robert Rotstein offers insights into the nature of jurors and jury trials with We, the Jury

Many speculative fiction titles will also be represented, including Sergey and Marina Dyachenko’s dark fantasy, Vita Nostra; H.R. Conklin’s second book in the Celtic Magic series, The Witch’s Knot; and Marie Andreas’ book three in her space opera Asarlaí Wars series, Defiant Ruin. Just in time for the holidays, Sam Hooker pairs a swear-prone witch and a retired warrior named Santa to defeat libertines in The Winter Riddle.

This event is free and seating is first come, first serve. To get a book signed during one of our events, a copy of the event book must be purchased through Mysterious Galaxy. Event purchases through Mysterious Galaxy not only keeps our bookstore doors open, but also makes author signings possible.
