Meet the acclaimed Michael Blumlein


The amazing Dr. Michael Blumlein, author of THE ROBERTS, with the help of writer and jazz pianist Carter Scholz celebrates the release of his new novel Longer at Bird & Beckett in San Francisco on Sunday, June 23 at 2pm.

Michael Blumlein has had a distinguished 30+ year career in speculative fiction, and presents his novel, Longer, today at Bird & Beckett with a little help from his friend, fellow writer, and jazz pianist Carter Scholz.

Library Journal says, “Blumlein gives us Waiting for Godot, set in space, in succinct and intelligent storytelling.” We like anything that reference Sam Beckett, of course, though it’s not certain how that fits this wonderful novel. Nimble and tender, poignant and thoughtful. At once complex and simple. A touch of the marvelous, floating just out of reach where philosophy and science mingle in the miasma. Ultimately, it’s seems to be about the decisions the heart leads us to make about our lives and the work we do.  And about how we avoid, embrace or ponder the inevitability of death.
