Book Notes

When my mother-in-law declared herself an ardent fan of “Game of Thrones” last week, I knew the science-fiction/fantasy genre had truly reached a tipping point. Once relegated to Trekkie conferences and comic book stores, imaginary lands and futuristic technologies have appeared to invade mainstream pop culture in a big way. We’ve been doing our best to keep up with the trends at the library, and I’ve highlighted recent acquisition sure to appeal to Frodo and Spock fans alike. The Age of Miracles / Karen Thompson Walker Looking to dip your toe in the sci-fi waters? This beautifully wrought bildungsroman...
