Paolo Bacigalupi:

The Windup Girl

Bacigalupi’s stunning debut novel The Windup Girl, published by Night Shade Books in September 2009, won the Hugo, Nebula, and John W. Campbell Memorial Awards in 2010. The Windup Girl was also named by Time Magazine as one of the Top 10 Books of 2009.

We love the Raphael Lacoste artwork, it totally captures the sense of time in the book.

Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGen's Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkok's street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history's lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko...

Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human; instead, she is an engineered being, creche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman, but now abandoned to the streets of Bangkok. Regarded as soulless beings by some, devils by others, New People are slaves, soldiers, and toys of the rich in a chilling near future in which calorie companies rule the world, the oil age has passed, and the side effects of bio-engineered plagues run rampant across the globe.

What Happens when calories become currency? What happens when bio-terrorism becomes a tool for corporate profits, when said bio-terrorism's genetic drift forces mankind to the cusp of post-human evolution?

Ship Breaker:

The signed limited edition of Paolo Bacigalupi’s acclaimed second novel, Ship Breaker, printed in two colors throughout, on 80# Finch, with a full-color dust jacket and a pair of full-color interior illustrations by Jon Foster.

On a devastated Gulf Coast, seventeen-year-old Nailer ekes out a bleak existence scavenging copper wire from downed oil tankers. His horizons extend no further than the dangerous community of Bright Sands Beach, where his abusive father is the most brutal threat of all. But when a clipper ship washes ashore with a live—and rich—girl on board, Nailer has a decision to make. Will he profit from his find or gamble on helping her survive? With Ship Breaker, Paolo Bacigalupi offers a disturbing yet ultimately hopeful look into the near future.

Bacigalupi’s acclaimed collection, Pump Six and Other Stories, and his multiple-award-winning debut novel, The Windup Girl, established him as one of science fiction’s boldest new writers. Praised by critics and readers alike, now Ship Breaker has made him one of the young adult field’s brightest stars. The novel was a finalist for the Andre Norton Award and the National Book Award in the Young People’s Literature category, and claimed the Michael L. Printz Award, the American Library Association’s top honor for young adult literature.

This special limited edition includes an extensive new interview with the author.

The Drowned Cities:

The signed limited edition of Paolo Bacigalupi's third novel, The Drowned Cities, printed in two colors throughout, on 80# Finch, with a full-color dust jacket and a pair of full-color interior illustrations by Jon Foster.

In Ship Breaker, award-winning author Paolo Bacigalupi introduced readers to a bleak, dystopian future as convincing and vividly rendered as anything in recent popular fiction. Now, Bacigalupi returns to that world in The Drowned Cities, an independent narrative as memorable and viscerally exciting as its distinguished predecessor.

Two very different characters dominate the novel's war torn landscape. Tool, a figure familiar to Ship Breaker's many admirers, is an "augment," a genetically altered creation--part animal, part human--designed to serve as the perfect killing machine. Mahlia is a "war maggot," a crippled, castoff teenager left behind by the Peacekeepers, who tried--and failed--to impose some sort of order on the fragmented, increasingly violent society known as the Drowned Cities. Mahlia's relationship with her newly acquired "family"--a doctor who teaches her the art of healing and a young boy named Mouse who once saved her life--keeps her connected, however tenuously, to the world of human values. When devastation descends on her village and disrupts those fragile connections, Mahlia finds herself in an unlikely alliance with Tool, who may represent her last, best chance to save a friend--and preserve her own humanity.

The Drowned Cities is a story of love, war, loyalty, and survival. More importantly, it is an unforgettable portrait of a society that has lost its way, in which natural and man-made disasters have combined to leave chaos and destruction in their wake.
