Description The tie-in to the upcoming blockbuster prequel to John Carpenter's THE THING - the never before told story of the original doomed Norwegian expedition. When a group of scientific researchers, isolated in Antarctica, stumble across an alien spaceship buried in the ice it seems like an incredible opportunity. The alien pilot can just be seen - a shadowy figure frozen just a short depth into the ice. It looks as though he survived the crash only to be flash-frozen on the Antarctic plateau. The team fight the frozen conditions to free the ship from the ice - with disastrous consequences - and rescue the alien. As they transport the corpse, one of their greatest finds, out on the ice back to their camp, several scientists begin to experience extraordinary, vivid and unsettling dreams. They're dismissed as the product of stress and the harsh conditions ...but the nightmare is only beginning.
Sunshine Patriots - Staff Choice by Tiemen I had the pleasure of meeting Bill earlier this year and I am so glad he gave me a copy of his Sunshine Patriots. I like military science-fiction but the last few years I’m having more and problems with the whole gung-ho aspect of it. Sunshine Patriots is the anti-Heinlein. Scathing, acerbic and just plain (very darkly) funny it is the story of a group of jarheads just trying to survive. Campbell makes a few poignant critiques about capitalism and commercialism but – even more – he writes science-fiction that deals honestly with questions about race and racism. Too often scifi just assumes race will be a thing of the past in the future. Campbell puts the lie to that notion and he does it in a no-punches-held-back way.
The Bookshop Book - Customer Choice by Lauren Hoeve This is a special book, and an important book. I was just getting out of a reading slump when I read this, and it pulled me out immediately. It made me appreciate physical bookstores even more than I already did. Love you, ABC.
