One of the best things about being a member of the Sundance staff is the conversations we get to have with our amazing, diverse customers every day. We love hearing about the books and music that you're excited about, and getting to offer some recommendations of our own too.

Be sure to check back regularly to find out about the books and music that our staff can't wait to share with you. You can also visit the archive for more of our staff picks.

This week, check out selections from Philip, Christine and Nilo:

 

 

 

Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner Future Noir Revised & Updated Edition: The Making of Blade Runner

"If you can't get enough of Blade Runner this is the book for you. 
Sammon has been with the Blade Runner project from before its
 inception with virtually unlimited access to everyone involved, 
including Philip K. Dick, through and beyond its completion.
 I thoroughly enjoyed all 592 pages and then went back and
 watched the variant film versions with a whole new set of eyes.
 And I just reread the original novel.  As you are probably aware,
 the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, is in theaters now."

 

A man in monk's garb surrounded by stone ruins  A Canticle for Leibowitz

  "I'm so struck by the setting of this novel, which takes place in the post-apocalyptic Great Basin.
The book explores who controls knowledge and features some really wonderful prose."

 

 

 

 

 area x trilogy The Area X Trilogy

"It's great to see an American landscape in science fiction. With elements of suspense, speculative fiction
and sci-fi, this trilogy offers an exciting blend of genre and setting."
