Book of the Week

The Long Utopia: A Novel, takes place in the years 2045-2059. Human society continues to evolve on Datum Earth, its battered and weary origin planet, as the spread of humanity progresses throughout the many Earths beyond. Lobsang, now an elderly and complex AI, suffers a breakdown, and disguised as a human attempts to live a “normal” life on one of the millions of Long Earth worlds. His old friend, Joshua, now in his fifties, searches for his father and discovers a heretofore unknown family history. And the super-intelligent post-humans known as “the Next” continue to adapt to life among “lesser” humans. But an alarming new challenge looms. An alien planet has somehow become “entangled” with one of the Long Earth worlds and, as Lobsang and Joshua learn, its voracious denizens intend to capture, conquer, and colonize the new universe—the Long Earth—they have inadvertently discovered. From Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s extraordinary Long Earth series, The Long Utopia is available on Amazon.com on June 23rd!

Haunted Rooms brings you the Pendle Hill Witch Ghost Hunt in Clitheroe, in the UK! Pendle Hill is an amazing and purely terrifying location. The Pendle Witch trials started back in 1612 and were known worldwide.  Malevolent and vicious spirits, witches, ghostly apparitions, and women’s voices are just some of the recorded paranormal activity that has been encountered there. Your ghost hunting evening will start at Clitheroe Castle where the local historian will walk you through the tale of the amazing Pendle Hill Witches. After the Castle tour, you’ll head straight to the base for the night for dinner, then onto your next location: the secret location on Pendle Hill where the ghost hunt will begin. You’ll start with a mass vigil, and then be split down into smaller teams to conduct your very own private vigils. Then you’re off to the pub in search of more paranormal activity! The Pendle Hill Witch Ghost Hunt takes place on Saturday, June 20th, in Clitheroe, UK. Check out www.hauntedrooms.co.uk for more information!
