U.S. fans of Jasper Fforde, author of the Thursday Next and the Nursery Crimes series, can now obtain his new book, Shades of Grey. The new book features a character named Eddie Russett and is set in a future where not everyone can see the entire spectrum of color. However, the more colors someone can see, the higher his or her social station. According to its Amazon description, the book is "part social satire, part romance, part revolutionary thriller." Sounds interesting.
Fforde's Thursday Next books, which are set in England but in a parallel universe, are quite fun. If you haven't yet checked out that series of books, I recommended you do so.
