Cover & Synopsis: THE GALAXY GAME by Karen Lord

Here’s the cover art and synopsis of Karen Lord’s upcoming novel The Galaxy Game.

Here’s the synopsis:

With the literary crossover appeal of Ursula K. Le Guin and China Miéville, Karen Lord is re-envisioning sci-fi for the twenty-first century with the story of a young hero exploring the galaxy-and discovering himself.

Karen Lord returns with The Galaxy Game, a new story and a new set of characters that both enriches its predecessor and stands alone. In this new novel, Rafi-the nephew of the heroine of Best-travels the universe with an intergalactic sports team, encountering strange new worlds and alien cultures. Lord’s bold new vision of 21st-century science fiction has appeal to both devoted genre fans and readers of literary fiction.
