“Why do we read? To taste new worlds. Worlds of magic and wonder, of fear and suspense, and of the secret chambers of the human heart. Whether it wanders the far reaches of the galaxy or hides in our neighbor’s basement, this creature called fiction ensnares our minds and teaches us truths real life never could.
Brave the land where the dead walk. Summon creatures of fire and water, the very elements of this world. Travel the far reaches of the country, rescuing humanity from the monsters they don’t even believe exist. Then come home to your pet dragon, glowering at you from the sofa.
Ready to read? Twenty new worlds await.”
