Have you read Quantum Night? You have 2 WEEKS.

Whether you're a fan of Robert J. Sawyer's work, have heard of him but don't know much about him, or you're just now learning his name, here's a great excuse to read one of his books before he arrives in Kansas City to be this year's ConQuesT Author Guest of Honor.

Quantum Night, a Locus #1 bestseller, is this month's selection for the Kansas City SF & F Literati. This local book club group will meet to discuss it Monday evening, May 22, at 7 p.m., on the second floor of the Oak Park Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Overland Park, KS.

What's it about? Here's the overview from location host Barnes & Noble's website:

"The Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Red Planet Blues, FlashForward, and the novels of the WWW Trilogy explores the thin line between good and evil that every human being is capable of crossing…

"Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined in court about his breakthrough, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life almost twenty years ago—a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

"Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend from his lost period and now a quantum physicist who has made a stunning discovery about the nature of human consciousness. As a rising tide of violence and hate sweeps across the globe, the psychologist and the physicist combine forces in a race against time to see if they can do the impossible—change human nature—before the entire world descends into darkness."

Note that everyone is welcome to attend the meeting, whether they've read the book or not.
