Staff Picks: Only You Can Save Mankind

Johnny Maxwell has a new video game. You shoot the aliens, you rack up points. It’s fun. But then one day the aliens try to surrender to him. As it turns out, they don’t want to die. How do you deal with a video game that just doesn’t want to behave properly? And what will Johnny do when other players start turning their games on and attacking?  Find out in "Only You Can Save Mankind" by Terry Pratchett.

Staff Pick: Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians

All his life, Alcatraz has been kicked out of foster homes when time after time he has been unlucky enough to break things. On his thirteenth birthday he receives his inheritance—a bag of sand. Alas, the sand is soon stolen by the evil librarians. Now he must wrap his mind around the reality so long hidden by librarian lies and rescue the sand. But how will he prevail against such a powerful enemy with only the help of those whose greatest gifts are the ability to arrive late, the ability to fall down and the ability to speak in utter gibberish?

Alcatraz versus the evil librarians.
