David Macinnis Gill’s new YA novel Black Hole Sun wins LJ Best Cannibal Award
Congrats to American science fiction author David Macinnis Gill, whose new Young Adult book Black Hole Sun (HarperCollins / Greenwillow, August 2010), a "future-dystopia kick-ass action novel set on Mars,” just received a Best Cannibal Award from Library Journal:
"You read that right. Cannibals made their way into many books for teens and adults this past year. Gill's cannibals -- the Dræu -- are on Mars, led by an evil queen with her own bloody appetites. These beasties plague an outcrop of miners who seek aid from Durango, the chief of a small crew of disgraced Regulators, now working as mercenaries for hire. The snappy wit of Durango and his sexy second-in-command, Vienne, paired with the bloodthirsty joy with which the Dræu go about their work makes for delightful reading-so much so that it can be easy to overlook Gill's masterly world-building."
Invisible Sun, a sequel to Black Hole Sun that continues the adventures of hero Jake "Durango" Stringfellow on Mars, is scheduled to be published in the winter of 2012.
