There is Lost in Space book trailer. Rejoice. Share. Love. Purchase copies. Though not necessarily in that order.

Wherein Lost in Space is all excerpt and I Need at the Sundog Lit.

Quite excerpt. Lots of need. And very thankful to the Justin Daugherty and the whole Sundog Lit crew for making it so. Excerpt? Word.

"I do need to learn how to say, “Are you okay?” more often. I learned this in family therapy. Apparently, when a child of mine and I are in the midst of what is otherwise a minor misunderstanding about what constitutes picking up one’s toys, doing homework, taking a shower, brushing one’s teeth, turning off the television, clearing the table, moving the laundry, talking respectfully, and using “I” phrases, and said child inadvertently trips over a toy or pile of laundry, slips in the bathroom, bumps into a closet door, bangs their head on a doorknob, cuts their finger, toe, elbow, knee, or ear, gets a headache, stomachache, or spontaneously combusts, my tendency is not to respond with, “Are you okay?” but something less empathic, and possibly in a voice not deemed suf­ficiently low, which I am told is not cool, and something I really need to do, which I will, promise."

Wherein Timothy Moore talks Orphans, Bald New World, Annihilation, new dystopias, and the loss of identity. And our brain nearly explodes.

Like totally explodes from the geeked-out, fan boy excitement. So, please do take a look, and if it is your wont, we are excerpt as well.

When it comes down to it, all three books are very different and ask different questions about identity. All are worth reading and analyzing and questioning.

"For myself, I'll never stop questioning.

I believe that we are more than our jobs. We are more than what we like on Facebook, what we read, what food we eat. We are more than our skin. Our race. Our personality. Who we love. Even our biology.

But I can't stop wondering. How much more?"
