Victor MilĂˇn and Melinda Snodgrass at Page One on August 8th
Local authors Victor Milan and Melinda Snodgrass
will be coming to Page One on
Saturday, August 8th at 4:00pm!
Victor Milán will be discussing the first book in his new series: The Dinosaur Lords.
A world made by the Eight Creators on which to play out their games of passion and power, Paradise is a sprawling, diverse, often brutal place. Men and women live on Paradise as do dogs, cats, ferrets, goats, and horses. But dinosaurs predominate: wildlife, monsters, beasts of burden-and of war.
Thus we are plunged into Victor Milán's splendidly weird world of The Dinosaur Lords, a place that for all purposes mirrors 14th century Europe with its dynastic rivalries, religious wars, and byzantine politics…except the weapons of choice are dinosaurs. Where vast armies of dinosaur-mounted knights engage in battle. During the course of one of these epic battles, the enigmatic mercenary Dinosaur Lord Karyl Bogomirsky is defeated through betrayal and left for dead. He wakes, naked, wounded, partially amnesiac--and hunted. And embarks upon a journey that will shake his world.
"It's like a cross between Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones." --George R. R. Martin
Victor Woodward Milán is writer known for libertarian science fiction and an interest in cybernetics. In 1986 he won the Prometheus Award for Cybernetic Samurai.

Melinda Snodgrass will be discussing the third book in her Edge series: The Edge of Dawn.
The final battle approaches for a band of modern paladins, fighting for the light of science and reason, and against an ancient supernatural army poised to destroy the world
What do you do when the Earth is under assault from monstrous creatures by alternate dimensions and you’re the only person who can wield the weapon that can destroy them? That’s the situation facing Richard Oort, hero of the Edge novels.
'lf H.P. Lovecraft and H. L. Mencken had ever collaborated, they might have come up with something like The Edge of Reason. This one will delight thinkers - and outrage true believers - of all stripes.' '[A] gritty narrative of a war between light and dark... Balanc[es] a harsh critique of organized religion with touches of humor and a good-hearted priest who grounds his faith in the Golden Rule...' -Publishers Weekly
Melinda Snodgrass was born in Los Angeles, but her family moved to New Mexico when she was five months old making her almost a native. She studied opera at the Conservatory of Vienna in Austria, graduated from UNM with a degree in history, and went on to Law School. She practiced for three years, and discovered that while she loved the law she hated lawyers, so she began writing. Snodgrass was a story editor and executive script consultant on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and her acclaimed episode, "The Measure of a Man," was nominated for the Writer's Guild Award for outstanding writing in a drama series. With George R. R. Martin, she co-created the popular Wild Cards series of shared-world novels and anthologies. She still resides in New Mexico.

Kathryn Ferguson and "The Haunting of the Mexican Border"
Author Kathryn Ferguson will be here on Friday,
September 18th at 7:00pm discussing her newest work,
The Haunting of the Mexican Border: A Woman's Journey.
In The Haunting of the Mexican Border, Ferguson shares a woman's view of the violence and generosity of the border. For fifteen years beginning in the 1980s, Kathryn Ferguson made documentary films in Mexico's Sierra Madre. As she traveled south, she encountered people who were traveling north, and she learned that the border at which they converged was deadly. Drawing on her own experiences, this book explores how US immigration policies erode the lives of ordinary citizens on both sides of the border
As a documentary filmmaker, Ferguson made the award winning films "The Unholy Tarahumara" and "Rita of the Sky." Filmed in the Sierra Madre and Chihuahua, Mexico, they were screened in US and international film festivals. For over a decade, she has volunteered with Tucson Samaritans to carry life-saving food, water, and medical supplies to people travelling the trails of southern Arizona. Ferguson lives in Tucson, Arizona.
