Carrie Patel Signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, March 7 at 2pm
Debut cross-genre author Carrie Patel hones her writing skills in her job as a narrative designer for video games at Obsidian Entertainment. Publishers Weekly’s review of The Buried Life notes: “With Regency-era sensibilities and Agatha Christie’s flair for the subtle conundrum, Patel’s debut novel introduces readers to a subterranean city of the future, centuries after what is dubbed “The Catastrophe,” and beautifully manages the delicate balance between entertainment and social commentary… The subtly fantastical story is resplendent with surprisingly deep villains, political corruption, and a gripping whodunit feel.”

Olen Steinhauer - "All the Old Knives"
Warwick's, Tuesday, March 10 at 7:30pm
Warwick's is hosting New York Times bestselling author Olen Steinhauer on Tuesday, March 10th at 7:30pm to present his exciting new book, All the Old Knives. Olen Steinhauer is the author of an Eastern European thriller series including The Bridge of Sighs, 36 Yalta Boulevard, Liberation Movements, and Victory Square. His work has been twice nominated for the Edgar and shortlisted for the Ellis Peters Historical Dagger and the Anthony, the Barry, and the Macavity awards. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. Six years ago in Vienna, terrorists took over a hundred hostages, and the rescue attempt went terribly wrong. The CIA's Vienna station was witness to this tragedy, gathering intel from its sources during those tense hours, assimilating facts from the ground and from an agent on the inside. So when it all went wrong, the question had to be asked: Had their agent been compromised, and how? Two of the CIA's case officers in Vienna, Henry Pelham and Celia Harrison, were lovers at the time, and on the night of the hostage crisis Celia decided she'd had enough. She left the agency, married and had children, and is now living an ordinary life in the idyllic town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Henry is still a case officer in Vienna, and has traveled to California to see her one more time, to relive the past, maybe, or to put it behind him once and for all.

But neither of them can forget that long-ago question: Had their agent been compromised? If so, how? Each also wonders what role tonight's dinner companion might have played in the way the tragedy unfolded six years ago.

All the Old Knives is New York Times bestseller Olen Steinhauer's most intimate, most cerebral, and most shocking novel to date.

Girls Gone SciFi in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Friday, March 20 at 7:30pm
Jessica Brody Jessica Khoury Debra Driza Melissa Landers Claudia Gray

SciFi YA extravaganza in San Diego! Blast off for adventure with young adult authors Jesssica Brody (Unchanged), Claudia Gray (A Thousand Pieces of You), Jessica Khoury (Kalahari), Melissa Landers (Invaded), and Debra Driza (MILA 2.0: Renegade). Unchanged completes the thrilling SF trilogy started in Jessica’s Unremembered; fans are encouraged to check out the ebook short, “Unleashed,” as wel, for more insights into the mysterious Diotech Compound. Bestseller Claudia’s A Thousand Pieces of You is blurbed as “Orphan Black meets Cloud Atlas in the first book of this epic dimension–bending trilogy about a girl who must chase her father’s killer through multiple dimensions.” The Corpus Files that Jessica began with Origin in the depths of the Amazon rainforest and continued with Vitro in the South Pacific islands now takes readers to the wilds of Botswana with Kalahari. Linda’s review of Melissa’s Alienated reads, “Appealing to science fiction and YA readers, a plot with a forbidden love theme involving intergalactic exchange students allows Landers to discuss important issues such as teen romance, peer pressure, trust and acceptance of those a little bit different from ourselves.” The story continues in Invaded. The 2015 version of San Diego author Debra will captain the ride!

Lee Silber signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, March 21 at 4pm
Local author Lee Silber’s website reflects the many hats he wears: author, trainer, designer, consultant. Not only is he a successful keynote speaker who consistently delivers innovative presentations, but Lee is also the author of 21 books, including his second novel, The Homeless Hero. Lee did extensive research for the novel: "Well, I now know what it would be like to be homeless . . . and it was awful. I spent a few days and nights on the streets of San Diego to research my new novel and I had no idea how hard life could be. I learned so much from good people (and bad) about what it takes to live in your car or under a cardboard box and much of what I discovered made its way into my book. Researching it was trying (but worth it), and writing it was a labor of love."
