TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
– Grab your current read
– Open to a random page
– Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
– Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser for this week: “In the moment months before, listening to the doctor drone on, he had decided to spend his last days in a long space-time jogg. He could fulfil his dream, sliding backward into eras “nested”, as the specialists said, close to his own.” – p. 311 – 312, “Mercies” by Gregory Benford, Engineering Infinity anthology
My teaser is actually from a short story, one of many in this science fiction anthology called Engineering Infinity that just came out earlier this year. It’s the first time I’ve actually read an anthology and it’s pretty cool because you get a glimpse of what’s out there in the science fiction genre at the moment and what sort of ideas and stories and worlds they’ve envisioned. I don’t read a lot of sci-fi despite my love of the genre (as I’ve mentioned in a past TT) so this is just another way of checking out what’s out there. It’s an eclectic mix of stories that are just mind-boggling and fantastic; I wish I was just as creative as they are. If you’re into the genre, it’s worth checking out.
