Pre-Order. Release day for Thursday, 1:17 p.m. is just two months away. But if you can't wait that long it is available for pre-order now at Amazon. It will be available everywhere on May 1.
Save the Date for DC. Readings for Thursday, 1:17 p.m. are in the works. More details to follow. But one date is certain for DC-area folks - Saturday, June 25 at 1 p.m. at Politics and Prose. I'll be reading with Tara Laskowski. (I'm always looking for places to read - drop me a line if you have any leads.)
Blurbs. I've been lucky enough to have some amazing authors say some very nice things about the book. Take a look at their blurbs below. And while you're waiting for Thursday to come out, go pick up a book by Amber, Bryn and Richard and spend some quality time with these great writers.
“With the keen understanding of a young teenage mind, the wit to witness it, and the talent to play around with space and time and the laws of physics, Michael Landweber has written a coming-of-never-more-aging tale sure to entertain anyone with a soul and a brain.”
~Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World and Other Stories
“With Thursday, 1:17 p.m., Landweber has taken the trope of Last Man on Earth and turned it into something far more troubling and thought-provoking. Whatever your plans were for being completely alone on the planet, this book will force you to revise them.”
~Bryn Greenwood, author of All the Ugly and Wonderful Things, Last Will, and Lie Lay Lain
“How much mischief can one stressed-out teenage boy get into when everything else on Earth is trapped in a permanent game of freeze tag? Would you write a guidebook? Tip zoo animals? Tip people? Stop a suicide? Landweber’s magical extravaganza pays homage to Groundhog Day, The Graduate, Fight Club, and The Fermata, in an episodic see all, tell all, with an 80’s soundtrack. Duck, the reluctant virginal hero, learns way more than he wants to about friends, family, his crush, and reality, in his search for a way to reboot the world.”
