Today is the day! Ladyhoppers is officially published in the world (although it may take our friendly local bookstores a day or two to catch up!). Wondering what Ladyhoppers is about? Here's what you need to know:
Sometimes to save the world, you've got to punch a few dragons…
When the planet is being eaten by interdimensional parasites who literally tear holes in reality, what do you do? If you're Charlie Chase, you dive headfirst into an interdimensional adventure. Charlie knows her calling is a weighty one, but she trusts her mentor’s orders: Travel to another dimension, fix the tear, and get home to do it all over again.
But when she gets stuck on an alternate Earth, she has to turn to the most unexpected of allies: a younger, more eccentric, more infamous version of the brilliant mind that sent her on her mission. This version of Vera Baum is as much socialite as scientist, who seems to embrace the notion that curiosity killed the cat, in the way that means she's determined to use up all nine of her lives blasting through a kaleidoscope of genre-bending realities. Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better, especially when they’re pursued by reality-eating parasites and a biomechanical hound hellbent on killing Vera.
Ladyhoppers is a genre-hopping, multiverse-spanning, madcap buddy comedy packed full of flaming zeppelins, coffee shop romances, car chases, dragon punching scientists, and more pirates than you can shake a multi-limbed death machine at. Grab your spacesuit, drink an espresso, and hold on tight—it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
With a starred review from Publishers Weekly and a feature at John Scalzi's Big Idea, it's clear that Ladyhoppers has already hit the ground running. So zip into your space suit (or your Velo—it has pockets!) and get ready to jump into a rip in reality. Adventure is waiting for you.
-Alana Joli Abbott, Outland's Editor in Chief, is ridiculously excited for the release of Ladyhoppers. She's not a multiverse traveler herself, but she likes to pretend she could be, as long as she packed enough coffee to tide her over.
