Coming in our next Sci-fi & Fantasy Themed Book Subscription Box!
**Potential Spoiler Alert!**
Read on if you would like book hints to know more about what is coming in our next sci-fi & fantasy themed book subscription box. Part of the fun of our subscription is that subscribers do not know exactly what will be contained in their sapphire blue box until it lands on their doorstep and they unpack and unwrap the contents.
Yet on the other hand, I get so excited about the great books we are going to include and many of you would like an idea of what is coming up so I’m going to give you some idea about all 3 fab books that will be in our August 2019 book subscription box.
In no particular order:
The first book I want to tell you about is an original and beautiful fantasy book in hardback an signed by the author. The world building is intricate and in-depth and the plot commands your attention and won’t let go until the last page. You first meet the main character when she is in her 80s and the depiction of the challenges of old age will stay with me for a long time. Most of the book is set in another world, a dark world of monsters and travelling to this world takes years from a human body but none of their memories. This complex tale is told from two different points of view and the two characters stories are woven together by the end of the book.
The next book is also in hardback and is a visionary sci-fi novel set in a version of our near future where Earth is being threatened by destruction by an expanding Sun. A super-computer is called on to try and find a solution. This super computer is an artificial consciousness (not to be confused with a artificial intelligence) designed by scientists to help people with their problems and her program is still in it’s early stages. She has a human like appearance and is able to learn through experience. This artificial consciousness is the narrator of the book which explores what it is to be human.
The third book completing the set of 3 books, gives us an alternate history of the space race where a meteorite strikes the east coast of the United States wiping out Washington D.C. This brings a greater urgency and focus on space travel and colonising outer space. The novel gives a fascinating insight into the space industry but the heart of the book is the story of the first female astronaut to travel to the moon.
Can you work out what any of these books are?
