MAC'S BACKS SCI-FI BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES A MEMORY CALLED EMPIRE

Thursday, November 18, 2021 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Mac's Backs Sci-Fi Book Club discusses A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine.

Ambassador Mahit Dzmare arrives in the center of the multi-system Teixcalaanli Empire only to discover that her predecessor, the previous ambassador from their small but fiercely independent mining Station, has died. But no one will admit that his death wasn't an accident--or that Mahit might be next to die, during a time of political instability in the highest echelons of the imperial court. 

Now, Mahit must discover who is behind the murder, rescue herself, and save her Station from Teixcalaan's unceasing expansion--all while navigating an alien culture that is all too seductive, engaging in intrigues of her own, and hiding a deadly technological secret--one that might spell the end of her Station and her way of life--or rescue it from annihilation.

"A mesmerizing debut . . . it left me utterly dazzled."--The New York Times Book Review

[A] gorgeously crafted diplomatic space opera . . . Readers will eagerly away the planned sequels to this impressive debut.--Publishers Weekly, starred review 

Arkady Martine is the Hugo Award-winning author of A Memory Called Empire. She is a speculative fiction writer and, as Dr. AnnaLinden Weller, a historian of the Byzantine Empire and a city planner. Under both names, she writes about border politics, rhetoric, propaganda, and the edges of the world. Arkady grew up in New York City and, after some time in Turkey, Canada, and Sweden, lives in New Mexico with her wife, the author Vivian Shaw. A Memory Called Empire is her first novel. 

The book will be available at Mac's Backs or through our website at the 20% book club discount.
