Stephenie Meyer and Peter Paik See Eye to Eye

One is the story of a woman whose body has been invaded by an alien species. The other is an analysis of speculative writing, and how these otherworldly stories often reflect our own societal ills.

Stacie swears that they were placed next to each other accidentally. Stephenie Meyer's The Host has just come out in paperback. So has Peter Y. Paik's From Utopia to Apocalypse. I actually brought in his new book as he is a professor at UWM (and a customer too, hurray.) His book was originally meant for the Read Local case. But it really needs to have at least a little time with Meyer, doesn't it?
