Staff Recommendation: Ender’s Game

Staff Recommendation - Ender's Game

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

This enduringly popular 1985 science fiction novel is considered an influential must-read classic in the genre. It’s suitable for young readers as well as adults. It was adapted into a movie in 2013.

If you enjoy(ed) this book, the second novel in this series, Speaker for the Dead, is also well-loved (though Ender’s Game works just fine as a stand-alone story).

Vintage Paperback: The Four Day Weekend

 

“What happens to a man when a woman is the boss – even in the 21st Century?”

From our vintage sci fi/fantasy section is this 1966 gem by George Henry Smith, The Four Day Weekend.

The Four Day Weekend - Vintage Paperback

From the back of the book:

THE REVOLT OF THE MACHINES
It was impossible, of course, because the machines had been ruling everything for 100 years, so what could they revolt against?
They decided people had outlived their usefulness to them, and that genocide of 4 billion people on Planet Earth was the best policy.
And into this incredible situation Charles Henry Hyde was thrust, with a shrew of a wife named Agnes who nagged like it was 1966…

Our price is $5.00.

New Arrival – ROBOTS

 

Robots: Machines in Man’s Image (1985) by Isaac Asimov and Karen A. Frenkel has arrived.

If you’re into this kind of thing…this is SUCH a cool book! It’s a pleasure to page through it as it’s packed full of illustrations and photos. It covers everything robots: the origins of robots, robots in pop culture and science fiction, industrial robots, actual research and tech, and speculation on the future of robots. It was published in 1985, so part of the fun of this book is looking at these ideas through the lens of that time.

It comes covered in a clear protective book jacket – our price is $8.00.
