In the beginning, there was Rocket Boy and the Geek Girls.
But…well, things happen, and before you know it, a new generation has come along, sassing its elders and wanting the keys to the hyperdrive…
SPAWN OF ROCKET BOY AND THE GEEK GIRLS features rare reprints, hard-to-find favorites, and newer tales of lost comrades, alien first contacts, and unexpected confrontations with evolving science by Book View Cafe authors Brenda W. Clough, Vonda N. McIntyre, Chaz Brenchley, Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, Phyllis Irene Radford, and Steven Popkes, among many others. There is something for every sci-fi reader in this collection, from Alma Alexander’s lyrical and heartbreaking “Like Starlight,” to Jennifer Stevenson’s clever “Who Killed Science Fiction,” to the gritty dieselpunk of Jay Lake and Shannon Page’s madcap “Rolling Steel: A Pre-Apocalyptic Love Story.”
Climb aboard and embrace our pulp-dream past and our cutting-edge future!
