Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  

This week I’m very excited to have a triple whammy in that (1) this is a book I’m looking forward to; (2) It’s a cover reveal plus information about the new Angry Robot logo; and (3) this fits in perfectly with Sci-Fi Month.  Bigbadaboom!  Multipass is me.

For more information about sci-fi month check out this link.  I’ve been a little tardy with my reading this month so I’m very excited to be able to provide information about a forthcoming sci-fi book before the event comes to a conclusion.  If you’ve not taken part yet there’s still time 😀

So, to the description for a little bit of information about the book:

Even in a technologically-advanced, Kennedy-Didn’t-Die alternate-history, Brooklyn Lamontagne is going nowhere fast. The year is 1975, thirty years after Robert Oppenheimer invented the Oppenheimer Nuclear Engine, twenty-five years after the first human walked on the moon, and eighteen years after Jet Carson and the Eagle Seven sacrificed their lives to stop the alien invaders.

Brooklyn just wants to keep his mother’s rent paid, earn a little scratch of his own, steer clear of the cops, and maybe get laid sometime in the near future. Simple pleasures, right? But a killer with a baseball bat and a mysterious box of 8-track tapes is about to make his life real complicated…

So, this title is due for release in May 2022.   I won’t keep you waiting any longer, (imagine a drum roll about now), here is the cover:

    I’m not one for sci-fi at all, but Mercury Rising will work for me for sure! I love the way you handled your post! Made me chuckle.
