Blackout - Marc Elsberg

Staff Pick
Civilization as we now know it is sustained by an ocean of electrons. Electricity is at the root of nearly everything we do. So what would happen if that ocean evaporated, if that root was severed? This is the crux of Marc Elsberg's Blackout. In it, unknown hackers suddenly take out Europe's power grid, leaving millions in the dark. Authorities race to find the culprits and fix the problem before it’s too late. This is an excellent, fast-paced thriller that will leave you wondering, next time you go to flip a light switch, whether or not it will turn back on.

The Flintstones - Mark Russell

Staff Pick

Flintstones, meet the Flintstones! Creators Steve Pugh and Mark Russell took that wacky cartoon from Hanna-Barbera and updated it in the form of a comic book. What is truly astonishing, what I almost still can’t believe even though I’ve read it, is that it works. Not only does it work—it is hilarious. Here before you is a romp of a satire that will surprise you with its humor and its sharp societal criticisms. Buy it. Read it. Share it with your family and friends. On my honor as a bookseller you’ll have a yabba dabba doo time!
