Phoebe Wagner, A Shot of Gin – Reading & Signing

October 14, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

Join us for a reading & signing of author Phoebe Wagner’s newest book, A Shot of Gin.

In A Shot of Gin, Juniper “Gin” Cain is pretty sure she’s mostly human. Working security for the vampire-owned All Saints Casino, Gin’s got an edge on the other employees: vampires can’t drink her blood, making her perfect for the job. But when a radiated zombie staggers into the casino’s club, she’s forced to expose the inhuman traits she’s kept hidden. Now, the powerful Vegas vampires want a piece of her. Her fanged boss Colton-a cowboy turned during the Nevada silver rush-helps her escape into the high desert, but the Vegas vampires and radiated zombies pursue relentlessly, eventually closing in.

Phoebe Wagner is an author, editor, and academic writing at the intersection of speculative fiction and climate change. Their debut novel A Shot of Gin is forthcoming from Parliament House Press (2023) and set in Reno, Nevada. Publishers Weekly called their novella When We Hold Each Other Up a “fresh take on climate fiction.” Wagner is the editor of three solarpunk anthologies, including Sunvault: Stories of Solarpunk & Eco-Speculation. Wagner holds a PhD in literature from the University of Nevada, Reno, and is an Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at Lycoming College in Pennsylvania. Follow them at phoebe-wagner.com.
