This Week on The Book Smugglers:
Tomorrow we kick off the week with Thea’s review of YA dystopian novel Every In Between by Erzebet YellowBoy (Thea’s first review of a Masque book).
Then on Tuesday, we go for the cover reveal hat trick as we unveil the cover for the third and final book in the pre-apocalyptic Last Policeman trilogy by Ben H. Winters, World of Trouble.
On Wednesday, we make our monthly contribution to the Hodderscape Review Project with a joint essay on The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein. (Hold on to your hats folks – it’s time that we Smugglers become real science fiction fans.) Oh, and we also open up voting for the Old School Wednesday Poll for April!
On Thursday, Ana reviews one of the most buzzed about literary SFF/magical realism novels of late, Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi.
And on Friday, we close out the week with our official March on Mars Q&A with Sophia McDougall to talk about her upcoming YA science fiction novel Mars Evacuees. Over at Kirkus, Ana reviews fantasy novel Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard.
Phew! It’s another busy week! Until tomorrow, we remain…
