We'll welcome authors Larry J. Littlefield and Pearl M. Burns on
Thursday, July 30th at 6:30pm to discuss their new book:
Wildflowers of the Northern and Central Mountains of New Mexico: Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Sandia, and Manzano.


This unique reference work describes over 350 wildflowers and flowering shrubs that grow in New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Sandia, and Manzano Mountains, as well as neighboring ranges.

New Mexico Author William Galbreth

New Mexico Author William Galbreth
share The Mark of the Mob: The Scar of the Irish
on Sunday, August 2nd at 3:00pm.


After nearly forty years of silence, Dr. Bill Galbreth, finally tells his personal story of his coincidental repeated involvement with the Boston mafia and the torture they inflicted upon him in the mid-1970's. Dr. Galbreth lays out, in striking clarity, the underbelly and human nature of the American mob.

More than thirty years ago, Bill Galbreth, then, a soon-to-be graduate of Tufts Dental School, extern at the local prison, and the first - and, at that time, the only - certified forensic dentist in the US, was abducted, tortured, and hired by the 1970's Boston mob in their attempt to falsify evidence on major murders which would bring down a criminal network.

A definitive volume of the human nature to be prone to fear, this book gives a first person account of the fearsome and fearfully enacted violence that permeated mob subculture; an underground world that, running on fear, remains mired in intrigue, complicated relationships, controversy, and the collective consciousness.


This event is free and open to the public.

Victor Milán 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. He has also written several shared universe works for the Forgotten Realms, Star Trek, and Wild Cards Universes. He has also written books under the pseudonyms Richard Austin (The Guardians series), Robert Baron (Stormrider series), and S. L. Hunter (Steele series with Simon Hawke, who used the pen name J. D. Masters).

 

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.

This event is free and open to the public.

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.

 

This event is free & open to the public.
