Explore Infinity and Beyond: September is SCI-TEMBER!

Switch on your lightsaber, power-up your electron microscope, and prime those thrusters--it's SCI-tember! We're celebrating science AND science fiction throughout the month of September. That means lots of fresh books and comics celebrating the wonders of nature and imagination from all corners of the universe!

This morning we stocked several new additions including books by sci-fi greats, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, and Margaret Atwood. Not to mention, the first "sequel" Star Wars book by Timothy Zahn that featured characters and events following the storyline in Return of the Jedi. We've even got the only sci-fi novel ever written by astronomer Carl Sagan! (Hint: it was later made it into a movie.) We also snagged a copy of Daniel H. Wilson's Robopocalypse, about an android takeover--which is in developement to become a film directed by Steven Spielberg!
When you stop by this month, you'll also see some great comic books and graphic novels, including some non-fiction science comics (I bet you didn't know those existed!). We'll also have some great selections on the natural world for kids--just in time for back to school!

Look for more selections from science fiction greats this week and throughout the month!
