Robin Sloan releases new sci-fi book “Moonbound”

Renowned author Robin Sloan has just released his latest work of science fiction, Moonbound, which he considers to be his best-written and most ambitious book to date.

Evolution of Sloan’s writing career

Earlier in his career, Sloan self-published three short stories in different genres, with one of them gaining significant popularity and eventually becoming the basis for his novel Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. Despite being labeled as a “nominally realist” writer, Sloan’s work often contained elements of technomystical and sci-fi themes.

This trend continued in his subsequent novel Sourdough, which featured a futuristic food fair with a bread monster, hinting at the sci-fi stories wanting to break free from his narratives.

About “Moonbound”

Moonbound is set in a distant future and features characters such as wizards, talking beavers, sentient swords, and dragons. The protagonist, Ariel de la Sauvage, embarks on a unique journey that challenges traditional storytelling conventions, creating a multi-layered and engaging narrative.
