Mr Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore

by Robin Sloan


If you like off-beat novels with unlikely heroes, you’ll love this book.  A secret organisation, I.T. techs, maths, computer 3D modelling, Google and a plot to uncover the truth behind the bound, unbound and the burned.

Out of work web designer Clay takes the job at Mr Penumbra’s 24 hr bookstore and it is immediately obvious that this is no ordinary book shop with very few ‘ordinary’ customers.  It isn’t long before Clay’s curiosity is pricked and so the mystery and his quest to unravel the truth begins.
