Product Description

A Philip K. Dick Award Finalist. A San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book of the Year.

The year is 1967 and something new is sweeping across America: good vibes, bad vibes, psychedelic music, lab-designed drugs, anti-war protests, racial tension, free love, bikers, dropouts, flower children.

An age of innocence, a time of danger. The Summer of Love.

San Francisco is the Summer of Love: a convergence where American youth seek a New Explanation, musicians who will go on to world fame hold free concerts in the park, and violence lurks just around the corner.

Lost in these strange and wondrous days, teenager Susan Bell, alias Starbright, has run away to San Francisco to find her troubled best friend. Her path will cross with Chiron Cat’s Eye in Draco, a strange and beautiful young man who has journeyed farther than she could ever imagine.

With the help of Ruby A. Maverick, a feisty half-black, half-white hip merchant, Susan and Chi discover a love that spans five centuries. But Chi has traveled across the centuries on a vital mission—nothing less than saving the Universe. He, Starbright, and Ruby must unite to save all of spacetime from demonic entities who crave their annihilation.

A harrowing coming of age. A friendship ending in tragedy. A terrifying far future. A love spanning five centuries. And a gritty portrait of a unique time in American history--the Summer of Love.

From the author of The Gilded Age, A Time Travel (A New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book), The Garden of Abracadabra ("Fun and enjoyable urban fantasy."), Celestial Girl (A Lily Modjeska Mystery), Arachne (A Locus Hardcover Bestseller), One Day in the Life of Alexa (Five stars), and Strange Ladies: 7 Stories ("A must-read collection." The San Francisco Review of Books).

“Remarkable. . . .a whole array of beautifully portrayed characters along the spectrum from outright heroism to villainy. . . .not what you expected of a book with flowers in its hair. . . the intellect on display within these psychedelically packaged pages is clear-sighted, witty, and wise.”
—Locus Magazine

“A fine novel packed with vivid detail, colorful characters, and genuine insight.”
—The Washington Post Book World

“Captures the moment perfectly and offers a tantalizing glimpse of its wonderful and terrible consequences.”
—The San Francisco Chronicle

“Brilliantly crafted. . . .An engrossing tale spun round a very clever concept.”
—Katharine Kerr, author of Days of Air and Darkness

“Just imagine The Terminator in love beads, set in the Haight-Ashbury ‘hood of 1967.”
—Entertainment Weekly

“Mason has an astonishing gift. Her characters almost walk off the page. And the story is as significant as anyone could wish. This book will surely be on the prize ballots.”
—Analog

“A priority purchase.”
—Library Journal
