SURPRISE YOUR SHELF #006: AJ LOW
Genre: Science fantasy
The Book: This dark adventure is a hell of a ride — one where you follow a heroine with a deep disdain for the rules, formidable skills in a fight, and a very wry sense of humour. When she gets unwillingly sucked into a vortex of political drama and death, she finds herself trapped in the same place with a host of other oddball characters — who get murdered, one by one, till she can figure out what's going on.
Read if you: are the type of person who copes with funerals by making a joke.
The Curators: Adan Jimenez was born in the San Joaquin Valley in California to Mexican immigrant parents. He became an immigrant himself when he moved to Singapore after living in New York for almost a decade. He has worked for comic book stores, book stores, gaming stores and even a hoagie sandwich shop once. He loves comics, LEGOs, books, games (analog and video), science fiction and sandwiches. He currently works in the video game industry.
Born and raised in Singapore, Felicia Low-Jimenez has been a geek for most of her life and has written a lot of fanfiction. She was a bookseller and now works in comics publishing. She spends most of her free time reading, napping, and eating chocolate. If she leaves the house, it’s usually to go to a bookstore.
