Overview

Lisa Mason's classic time travel to 1967. A Philip K. Dick Award finalist. A San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book of the Year.

The year is 1967 and something new is sweeping across America: good vibes, bad vibes, psychedelic music, psychedelic drugs, anti-war protests, racial tension, free love, bikers, dropouts, flower children. An age of innocence, a time of danger. The Summer of Love.

San Francisco is the Summer of Love, where runaway flower children flock to join the hip elite and squares cruise the streets to view the human zoo.

Lost in these strange and wondrous days, teenager Susan Bell, alias Starbright, has run away to San Francisco to find her troubled best friend. Her path will cross with Chiron Cat’s Eye in Draco, a strange and beautiful young man who has journeyed farther than she could ever imagine.

With the help of Ruby A. Maverick, a feisty half-black, half-white hip merchant, Susan and Chi discover a love that spans five centuries. But can they save the world from demons threatening to destroy all space and time?

A harrowing coming of age. A friendship ending in tragedy. A love spanning five centuries. And a gritty portrait of a unique era in American history affecting us to this day.

From the author of The Gilded Age, A Time Travel (a New York Times Notable Book), The Garden of Abracadabra, Volume 1 of the Abracadabra Series, Celestial Girl (A Lily Modjeska Mystery), and Strange Ladies: 7 Stories.

The San Francisco Chronicle - Michael Berry
“Captures the moment perfectly and offers a tantalizing glimpse of its wonderful and terrible consequences.”
Locus - Faren Miller
"Remarkable. . .Summer of Love offers a whole array of beautifully portrayed characters, along the spectrum between outright heroism and villainy. . .the intellect on display within these psychedelically packaged pages is clear-sighted, witty, and wise."
