I also want to thank the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society (founded in 1934, whose members included a young Ray Bradbury), for adding my books to their permanent collection! This is an incredible honour to be part of this historical club’s longtime passion in science fiction and fantasy.
You can read more about LASFS on their wikipedia entry:
Now I know why they asked me if The Dark Victorian series (and the Elle Black Penny Dreads) were YA, they’ve a Book List of YA recommendations at their site (I said ‘no’, my books are not—that I know of :-p). The LASFS library is:
“The LASFS has a large lending library of science fiction, fantasy and genre-related nonfiction books. Housed in the 4SJ building, it consists of more than 20,000 volumes. The library takes quite a lot of work to maintain and more than a few librarians. The librarian is Warren Johnson, assisted by Darnell Coleman and a cadre of able volunteers. Library work parties are held regularly, and members are encouraged to participate in keeping our collection up-to-date and in good order.
One of the things that makes the LASFS unique is that every book and publication in its library and every video in its video collection is available to any member to borrow, even those that are rare and unusual. The LASFS is firmly committed to this type of open access.”
Go and borrow The Dark Victorian: RISEN and BONES, and SUNDARK: An Elle Black Penny Dread, today!
