Dexter Palmer’s debut, The Dream of Perpetual Motion, not only has a wonderful cover (and who doesn’t appreciate a good cover – don’t kid yourselves, we all judge books by their covers) but also sounds wildly inventive and entertaining. Harold Winslow, a greeting card writer, is in the midst of penning his memoir while he is imprisoned for life in a zeppelin that flies high above a fantastical city. Part science fiction, part memoir, part romance – a little something for everyone. Publishers Weekly claims “[T]his book will immediately connect with fans of Neal Stephenson and Alfred Bester, and will surely win over readers who’d ordinarily pass on anything remotely sci-fi.” See the full review here.
