New Sci Fi novel shakes the publishing world #scifi


Karen Thompson Walker

After an earthquake an eleven-year-old girl and her family wake in their home in California, to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow.

It may not be not be pure science fiction, but it certainly is a not-too-distorted future vision that is reminiscent of other great sci fi plots.

The novel is written by Karen Thompson Walker and will be published by Simon & Schuster, after they fought of an unprecedented 5-round auction, and paid £500,000 for the deal.

Who said the novel is dead when the idea is good enough to capture such a mass imagination.
