Jane Lindskold Returns to Page One!

Local author Jane Lindskold will be here
on Saturday, July 11th at 4:00pm
discussing her newest work, Artemis Invaded.


In Artemis Invaded, Jane Lindskold returns to the world of Artemis, a pleasure planet that was lost for millennia, a place that holds secrets that could give mankind back unimaginable powers.

Stranded archaeologist Griffin is determined to make his way back to his home world with news of the Artemis discovery. He and his gene-modified native companion, the huntress Adara, and her psyche-linked puma Sand Shadow, set out to find another repository of the ancient technology in the hope that somehow Griffin will be able to contact his orbiting ship.

In the midst of this, Adara wrestles with her complex feelings for Griffin-and with the consequences of her and Sand Shadow's new bond with the planet Artemis. Focused on his own goals, Griffin is unaware that his arrival on Artemis has created unexpected consequences for those he is coming to hold dear. Unwittingly, he has left a trail-and Artemis is about to be invaded.


Lindskold is the award-winning, bestselling author of more than twenty novels, including the incredibly popular Firekeeper series (Through Wolf's Eyes, Wolf's Blood), as well as more than sixty shorter works. Several of her novels have been chosen by VOYA for their Best SF, Fantasy and Horror list. Lindskold's work has been repeatedly praised for its sensitive depiction of worlds and cultures different from our own--especially those that aren't in the least human. She currently resides in Albuquerque.

This event is free & open to the public.

Jason Salas Brings Perk at Work to Page 1 Books

Jason Salas presents his latest work, Coffee Break Stories at Page 1 Books on Sunday, July 26th at 3pm

Perk at Work is a comic strip about a cafe worker, Perk, and his interactions with his boss, his cook, and his regular customers. The cafe is located on the ground floor of a downtown multi-story office building. Mr. Argyle owns the building and the cafe. Workers from the varied businesses in and around the building patronize the cafe when they need to grab a bite to eat, take a coffee break, or simply just want to step away from the desk and hang out. So when you’re getting a little burnt out and the corners of your mouth need a lift, visit Perk at Work. He’ll get the job done!


This event is free and open to the public.

Littlefield and Burns Bring "Wildflowers" to Page One

We'll welcome authors Larry J. Littlefield and Pearl M. Burns on
Thursday, July 30th at 6:30pm to discuss their new book:
Wildflowers of the Northern and Central Mountains of New Mexico: Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Sandia, and Manzano.


This unique reference work describes over 350 wildflowers and flowering shrubs that grow in New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Sandia, and Manzano Mountains, as well as neighboring ranges. With more than a thousand color photographs accompanied by visual descriptions, the easy-to-use guide organizes plants first by flower color, then alphabetically by family common name, then by scientific name. The authors also include information on traditional uses of the plants by indigenous peoples. Wildflower enthusiasts and hikers will welcome this useful book.


Larry J. Littlefield is a professor emeritus of plant pathology at Oklahoma State University. He has been a volunteer with the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center and the trails maintenance crew for the U.S. Forest Service since retiring in Albuquerque in 2005.


Pearl M. Burns is a member of the Friends of the Sandia Mountains and a leader of countless wildflower hikes for the U.S. Forest Service, Albuquerque Open Space program, and other organizations.

This event is free and open to the public.

New Mexico Author William Galbreth

New Mexico Author William Galbreth
share The Mark of the Mob: The Scar of the Irish
on Sunday, August 2nd at 3:00pm.


After nearly forty years of silence, Dr. Bill Galbreth, finally tells his personal story of his coincidental repeated involvement with the Boston mafia and the torture they inflicted upon him in the mid-1970's. Dr. Galbreth lays out, in striking clarity, the underbelly and human nature of the American mob.

More than thirty years ago, Bill Galbreth, then, a soon-to-be graduate of Tufts Dental School, extern at the local prison, and the first - and, at that time, the only - certified forensic dentist in the US, was abducted, tortured, and hired by the 1970's Boston mob in their attempt to falsify evidence on major murders which would bring down a criminal network.

A definitive volume of the human nature to be prone to fear, this book gives a first person account of the fearsome and fearfully enacted violence that permeated mob subculture; an underground world that, running on fear, remains mired in intrigue, complicated relationships, controversy, and the collective consciousness.


This event is free and open to the public.

Victor Milán and Melinda Snodgrass at Page One on August 8th

Local authors Victor Milan and Melinda Snodgrass
will be coming to Page One on
Saturday, August 8th at 4:00pm!


Victor Milán will be discussing the first book in his new series: The Dinosaur Lords.

A world made by the Eight Creators on which to play out their games of passion and power, Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often brutal place. Men and women live on Paradise as do dogs, cats, ferrets, goats, and horses. But dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden-and of war.

Thus we are plunged into Victor Milán's splendidly weird world of The Dinosaur Lords, a place that for all purposes mirrors 14th century Europe with its dynastic rivalries, religious wars, and byzantine politics…except the weapons of choice are dinosaurs. Where vast armies of dinosaur-mounted knights engage in battle. During the course of one of these epic battles, the enigmatic mercenary Dinosaur Lord Karyl Bogomirsky is defeated through betrayal and left for dead. He wakes, naked, wounded, partially amnesiac--and hunted. And embarks upon a journey that will shake his world.

"It's like a cross between Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones." --George R. R. Martin


Victor Woodward Milán is writer known for libertarian science fiction and an interest in cybernetics. In 1986 he won the Prometheus Award for Cybernetic Samurai. He has also written several shared universe works for the Forgotten Realms, Star Trek, and Wild Cards Universes. He has also written books under the pseudonyms Richard Austin (The Guardians series), Robert Baron (Stormrider series), and S. L. Hunter (Steele series with Simon Hawke, who used the pen name J. D. Masters).

 

Melinda Snodgrass will be discussing the third book in her Edge series: The Edge of Dawn.

The final battle approaches for a band of modern paladins, fighting for the light of science and reason, and against an ancient supernatural army poised to destroy the world

What do you do when the Earth is under assault from monstrous creatures by alternate dimensions and you’re the only person who can wield the weapon that can destroy them? That’s the situation facing Richard Oort, hero of the Edge novels.

'lf H.P. Lovecraft and H. L. Mencken had ever collaborated, they might have come up with something like The Edge of Reason. This one will delight thinkers - and outrage true believers - of all stripes.' '[A] gritty narrative of a war between light and dark... Balanc[es] a harsh critique of organized religion with touches of humor and a good-hearted priest who grounds his faith in the Golden Rule...' -Publishers Weekly

Melinda Snodgrass was born in Los Angeles, but her family moved to New Mexico when she was five months old making her almost a native. She studied opera at the Conservatory of Vienna in Austria, graduated from UNM with a degree in history, and went on to Law School. She practiced for three years, and discovered that while she loved the law she hated lawyers, so she began writing. Snodgrass was a story editor and executive script consultant on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and her acclaimed episode, "The Measure of a Man," was nominated for the Writer's Guild Award for outstanding writing in a drama series. With George R. R. Martin, she co-created the popular Wild Cards series of shared-world novels and anthologies. She still resides in New Mexico.

This event is free and open to the public.
