Sanem Ozdural. LiGa™. Science fact or fiction? Prediction or warning? Reading and discussion at Bluestockings Center, New York @ Bluestockings Bookstore
Jan 11 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Sanem Ozdural, author of LiGa™ will be reading from her debut novel and hosting a discussion at the Bluestockings Bookstore, Fair Trade Café and Activist Center, 172 Allen Street, New York on Friday 11 January 2013 from 19:00 to 21:00.

LiGa™ by Sanem Ozdural. Science fact or fiction? Prediction or warning?

Imagine a world where a select few can manipulate their own cellular degeneration to become effectively immortal. Where membership of this elite was gained through a game. Imagine the impact on society, and on those who lose. Sanem Ozdural has imagined such a world. Her debut novel, LiGa™, tells the story and examines the players’ motivation and the implications. Join her for a reading and a discussion ranging from writing speculative fiction to the ramifications of her imagined world.

There is a place called Pera which lies beyond the Light Veil, on the other side of reality. There are light trees there that eat sunlight and bear fruit which, in turn, lights up and energises (literally) the community of Pera. There are light birds that glitter in the night because they have eaten the seed of the lightberry. The House of Light and Dark, which is the domain of the Sun and her brother, Twilight, welcomes all creatures living in Pera. But in the midst of all the glitter, laughter and the songs, it must be remembered that the lightberry is poisonous to the non-Pera born, and the Land is afraid when the Sun retreats, for it is then that Twilight walks the streets…

With some of the characters that we originally met in LiGa™, Sanem Ozdural’s first novel, the Dark shall do what Light cannot transports us from New York to the colourful and wonderful world of Pera. On the way we meet the pirate Patron and her ship the Flying Fish, the only one that can sail through the Light Veil; Orion (Imm.), the Hunter, respected by some and feared by others; and Shadow, the formidable soul of Pera.

the Dark shall do what Light cannot will be available in popular eBook formats from all good eBook retailers.
