Magic City Books is thrilled to welcome bestselling author Robin Sloan for a free event to celebrate the release of his new novel Moonbound on Tuesday June 18 at 7:00 pm. This event will take place at the McKeon Center for Creativity on the downtown campus of Tulsa Community College, 910 S. Boston Avenue.

Moonbound is set in the same universe as Robin Sloan’s best selling and beloved novel Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore expanding the “Penumbraverse” to new reaches of time and space in a rollicking far-future adventure.

Moonbound will be published by MCD on June 11. Copies will be available for sale in the store and at the event on June 18 as well as other books by Robin Sloan. You can pre-order a copy at: https://magiccitybooks.square.site/product/moonbound/2097.

About Moonbound

In Moonbound, Robin Sloan has written a novel with the full scope and ambitious imagination of the very books that lit the engines of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore: an epic quest as only Sloan could conceive it, mixing science fiction, fantasy, good old-fashioned literary storytelling, and unrivaled enthusiasm for what’s next.

It is eleven thousand years from now . . . A lot has happened, and yet a lot is still very familiar. Ariel is a boy in a small town under a wizard’s rule. Like many adventurers before him, Ariel is called to explore a world full of unimaginable glories and challenges: unknown enemies, a mission to save the world, a girl. Here, as they say, be dragons. But none of this happens before Ariel comes across an artifact from an earlier civilization, a sentient, record-keeping artificial intelligence that carries with it the perspective of the whole of human history–and becomes both Ariel’s greatest ally and the narrator of our story.

Moonbound is an adventure into the richest depths of Story itself. It is a deeply satisfying epic of ancient scale, blasted through the imaginative prism one of our most forward-thinking writers. And this is only the beginning.

Robin Sloan grew up in Michigan and now splits his time between San Francisco and the internet. He is the author of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore and Sourdough.
