Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, writer, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her three cats, Millay, Farrokh, and Zevon, in Maine. She is also right behind you. Just kidding! She’s too busy reading. Twitter: @MissLiberty

tin menTin Men by Christopher Golden

If you’re not familiar with Golden, let me tell you, he’s one of the hardest working authors in the business. Novels, comics, anthologies – I don’t know how he does it all! His newest effort is a fast-paced, high-tech, apocalypsy novel about robot soldiers fighting to keep order in a chaotic world. These robots are controlled remotely, and when anarchists disrupt the world’s technology with an electromagnetic pulse, the human operators become trapped in the tin men! It’s hella fantastic and action packed, and makes you think – which is always a bonus.
