Amazingly witty and splendidly off-kilter, Jack Pendarvis, one of the first authors to ever appear at Wordsmiths, returns with his first full-length novel, Awesome. Equal parts young adult story of fancy and hope and very, very adult story of the lengths we go to for love, Awesome is, well, freakin awesome. A giant strides this land. A giant who builds robots, sweats mescaline, and kisses like a dream. From the rocky coast of New England to the golden hay fields of Stockton, California, he searches for America's greatest treasures. You might recognize him by the twinkle in his eye or the lustrous derby hat perched on top of his boulder-sized head. But for a dude who has it all, he sure seems sad a lot of the time -- what's up with that? And what exactly does he plan to do with all of those wonderful treasures, besides cart them around the country in his enormous red wagon? Is there someone, a beautiful lady named Glorious Jones, perhaps, who has asked him to gather the bounty of America in order to prove his love for her? You wont know unless you show up August 15, at 7:30 PM, to discover the treasures in Jack Pendarvis fantastic new work of fiction.
