Memory and Metaphor - Event with author Andrea Monticue

Florey's Books welcomes local author Andrea Monticue as she discusses her new book, "Memory and Metaphor".

***Saturday, March 16th, 2pm-4pm***

About the book:

Civilization fell. It rose. At some point, people built starships.

A millennium after the Earth was abandoned to climate change and resource depletion, Sharon Manders wakes up in a body that used to belong to somebody else, and some say she was a terrorist. She has no idea how she could be digging for Pleistocene bones in Africa one day, and crewing on a starship the next. That was just before she met the wolfman, the elf, and the sex robot.

Struggling with distressingly unreliable memories, the expectations of her host body’s family and crewmates, future shock, and accusations of treason, Sharon goes on the lam to come face to face with terrorists, giant bugs, drug cartels, AIs, and lawyers.

All things considered, she’d rather be back in 21st Century California.

About the author:

Andrea is an aircraft technician living on the West Coast. When she's not doing science fiction, she enjoys scuba, archery, bicycling, science, and languages.
