Galaxy Quest, eat your heart out
We’ve got to tip our hat to the cheesy SF works that defined the genre early on—and James Morrow’s intriguingly-titled The Madonna and the Starship hearkens back to exactly that. His satirical novel, set in the 1950s, sees aliens invading NBC studios to dispose of the millions of “irrational” viewers of a religious TV series. The only man who can stop them? A pulp writer who sounds like a cross between Kilgore Trout and Bill Nye the Science Guy: He must come up with a script that’s rationally absurd enough to deter the extraterrestrial invaders.
On shelves: June 10
Additionally, Bookish is giving away free copies of selected titles (including The Madonna and the Starship) from their summer previews.
