Ubik
Ubik

It's the future. We all have special powers, and we're on a spaceship bound for a colony on the moon to find the telepaths who have infiltrated Stanton Mick. When we get there, we find a room with three microphones. Mick makes only one demand: that we podcast for approximately one hour.

The subject? A novel about the future, where many people with special powers are on a spaceship bound for a colony on the moon to root out the telepaths who have infiltrated Stanton Mick. When we get there, we find a room with three microphones. That room will be occupied by Joshua Topolsky, Laura June, and Lev Grossman.

Josh and Laura are familiar to you; you've seen them before. Joshua Topolsky is tall and has a beard. Laura, likewise. Lev is the author of The Magicians (among others!), and also reviews books for Time Magazine. He is a professed lover of Ubik.

We'll be answering your questions about the September Book Club book, Ubik, live at 11:00 am today. Join us!
