New York Times-bestselling Author

speaking & signing
Bad Magic

Normally, we'd have lots to say, but for this event we truly have no idea. Who is this author? This Pseudonymous Bosch? No doubt some purveyor of imagination and a peddler of secretive and wonderful books! Rumor has it that Bosch will be wearing one of the rubber horse masks from our toy section for the entire reading. Or was it the pigeon mask? Such scandal! Such mystery! Welcoming the secret-holders, the spell-whisperers, and the readers of fantastic fictions, we know you don't want to miss out on this event!

About Bad Magic:
Magic is BAD. As in fake. Cheesy. Unreal. At least, that's what Clay, who has seen one magic show too many, thinks.

When words from his journal appear mysteriously on his school wall as graffiti, he never imagines that magic might be to blame. And when the same graffiti lands him at Earth Ranch, a camp for "troubled" kids on a remote volcanic island, magic is the last thing he expects to find there. But at Earth Ranch, there is one strange surprise after another, until Clay no longer knows what to expect. Is he really talking to a llama? Did he really see a ghost? What is the scary secret hidden in the abandoned library? The only thing he knows for sure is that behind the clouds of vog (volcanic smog), nothing is as it seems. Can he solve the riddle of Earth Ranch before trouble erupts?

About Psuedonymous Bosch:
