speaking & signing
Thus, Spoke the Thunder

We love our local authors here at BookPeople and tonight we're excited to welcome one of the best to share their new work. Nikita Maianka will share her new novel Thus, Spoke the Thunder. Join us for a wonderful night of literary camaraderie & fun!

ABOUT THUS, SPOKE THE THUNDER

It began with Cassio Dust, his body trapped overnight in a Philadelphia morgue. And then it became an epidemic.
A psychological disorder germinates in the Texas desert. They call it Shared Salvation Mania--commonly known as “The Dust”--and it makes the infected believe he or she can save the world. In a Hindu ashram, seven friends are reunited to try and make sense of idolatry and mystical transformations, uncertain if experiences are holy, or just existence, chance, destruction. And while they hide away, the nation falls to revolution between those who believe The Dust creates martyrs and gods, and those who think it breathes villains and demons. For if you fall sick, you will hunger to help others, indiscriminately. Does this form of madness need to be tamped?.

If you cannot attend the event and would like to order a signed copy of the book: order a signed book right over here. We ship all over the world!
