Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, by Robin Sloan
After losing his position as a web-designer at an upscale San Francisco firm, Clay Jannon finds himself employed at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. Soon, Clay discovers that the store is more curious than either its name or its quirky owner might suggest. Customers are few and actual purchases are even rarer. Instead, people spend vast amounts of time viewing obscure volumes from strange corners of the store. As Clay begins to unravel this mystery, he discovers the bookstore’s secrets extend far beyond its physical walls. Books will be available at the reference desk; for more information, call 801-337-2690.
