A gleeful and exhilarating tale of global conspiracy, complex code-breaking, high-tech data visualization, young love, rollicking adventure, and the secret to eternal life—mostly set in a hole-in-the-wall San Francisco bookstore The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone—and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything, instead "checking out" impossibly obscure volumes from strange corners of the store, all according to some elaborate, long-standing arrangement with the gnomic Mr. Penumbra. The store must be a front for something larger, Clay concludes, and soon he's embarked on a complex analysis of the customers' behavior and roped his friends into helping to figure out just what's going on. But once they bring their findings to Mr. Penumbra, it turns out the secrets extend far outside the walls of the bookstore. With irresistible brio and dazzling intelligence, Robin Sloan has crafted a literary adventure story for the twenty-first century, evoking both the fairy-tale charm of Haruki Murakami and the enthusiastic novel-of-ideas wizardry of Neal Stephenson or a young Umberto Eco, but with a unique and feisty sensibility that's rare to the world of literary fiction. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore is exactly what it sounds like: an establishment you have to enter and will never want to leave, a modern-day cabinet of wonders ready to give a jolt of energy to every curious reader, no matter the time of day.

"This is the first collection of stories from a widely acclaimed novelist writing in the realm of the literary fantastical.

Have you ever wondered why things are so bad in Los Angeles? Why is everything so irritating? Why are the lines so long? Why is everyone so selfish and immature? If you spend your time asking questions like these then you should meet the person responsible. Barlaam Smith is the devil assigned to Southern California. He has been so successful that he has worked himself out of a job. The people in his area are now so bad that he doesn't have to do a thing and his statistics are still incredible. In fact, many Angelinos could do his job better than he could on his best (or worst) day. Through his work in media and other modern means the city does his work automatically. So, he's bored and has begun to question himself. He's been pretending to be a human for ages, so the longer he stays on Earth the more human he becomes while all around him we humans become less so. What can he do?
