Steve Martini signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Friday, May 29 at 7:30pm
Guest host Laura Akers, Attorney-at-Law, will help MGSD welcome best-selling author Steve Martini for The Enemy Inside – his 13th Paul Madraini legal thriller. In a recent article, Publishers Weekly remarked on Steve’s background: “Martini brings a diverse professional background to his books, having served as an administrative law judge and supervising hearing officer, as a legislative representative for the State Bar of California, and as special counsel to the California Victims of Violent Crimes Program.” Compressing time so a lengthy trial fits within the pages of a novel can be difficult, Martini says, but “one way to float the story is with humor. Funny things happen in courtrooms. The novelist who can exploit them in realistic fashion in fiction and do it with flair often has a winning formula. Being accurate about the legal system is important, but when good fiction dictates that this may not be possible, a good laugh may cover your sleight of hand when you are forced to take some liberty.”

This is a numbered event – numbers for the signing line are free with the purchase of The Enemy Inside from Mysterious Galaxy, available May 12th, starting at 10 AM!

If you are planning to attend the event, please do not place your order through the web site as all such orders are processed after the event. Instead, please come by or call the store and purchase the book on or after the on-sale date.

Matt Coyle Signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, May 30 at 2pm
Mysterious Galaxy was thrilled to be part of the Bouchercon 2014 book room last fall when San Diego’s own Matt Coyle won the Anthony Award for Best First Novel for Yesterday’s Echo. La Jolla PI Rich Cahill is drawn to investigate an eight-year-old case for a young male convict serving time at San Quentin. Publishers Weekly cautions, “Most PIs are hypercompetent and tough, but Cahill is fallible and painfully vulnerable—he keeps on trying to do the right thing. Readers should be prepared for a morally ambiguous ending to this sobering crime novel.”

Listen to Matt talk about his new work at Authors on the Air.

Peter Clines grew up in the Stephen King fallout zone of Maine and–inspired by comic books, Star Wars, and Saturday morning cartoons–started writing at the age of eight with his first epic novel, Lizard Men from the Center of the Earth,” per his website bio. The Southern CA author has published several pieces of short fiction and countless articles on the film and television industries. The Publishers Weekly review of The Fold notes: “Clines (the Ex-heroes series) adds to the comfort-read shelves with this fun, character-driven techno-thriller. Clines lays the groundwork nicely as the tale evolves from a scientific mystery into a thriller with elements of horror and adventure.”

Leah Thomas signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, June 6 at 2pm
Come help us celebrate the launch of Leah Thomas’s quirky debut YA novel, Because You’ll Never Meet Me. This Indies Introduces pick tells the story of two teenage boys, Ollie and Moritz, who are isolated from society for different reasons: Ollie is allergic to electricity and Moritz is sightless with a weak heart. They can never meet since Ollie would have seizures due to Moritz’s pacemaker. The story unfolds through their letters to one another, and it’s Thomas’s science fiction spin on such things as bullying and first love that makes this story so engaging. Thomas is a Clarion graduate who wrote short stories for various speculative fiction magazines.
