Win a Signed Copy of The Stargazer’s Embassy

Last week we told you that Eleanor Lerman’s new book, The Stargazer’s Embassy, is arriving on July 11th, and now we’re back with five signed copies to give away courtesy of the author and her publisher, Mayapple Press.  This unique, exquisitely rendered take on the “abduction” story is Lerman’s second foray into full-length literary science fiction, following the award-winning Radiomen.

Lerman explains her shift from the themes of love, civil disobedience, drugs, and homosexuality in her writing to science fiction: “[It] seemed like the only genre I could work with that would allow me to leave behind what were beginning to feel like mundane concerns of daily life and cross the border into the territory of God and death and the ideas that worry people who are getting older… In my last book, Radiomen, I worked with the idea that both humans and others who inhabit the universe might be equally confused about who or what God is. In Stargazer’s I use a similar framework to explore the concept of how none of us can really conceive of our own death as being final.​”​

Synopsis:
The Stargazer’s Embassy explores the frightening phenomenon of alien abduction from a different point of view. In this story it is the aliens who seem fearful of Julia Glazer, the woman they are desperately trying to contact. Violent and despairing after the murder of the one person she loved, a psychiatrist who was studying abductees, Julia continues to rebuff the aliens until her relationships with others who have met “the things,” as she calls them, including a tattoo artist, a strange man who can take photographs with the power of his mind, and an abductee locked up in a mental hospital, force Julia deeper into direct alien contact and a confrontation about what death means to humans and aliens alike.
