Duck and Covers: This Just In

Jo Walton is one of those writers who commands some readers to read everything she writes on blind faith. I’m not necessarily one of those people, but I recognize her appeal. Her newest project, due out in early 2014 is titled The Just City. It’s the story of time-traveling Pallas Athene and a social experiment. The result is a school with thousands of a children, teaching mortals to surpass the gods in understanding. Throw in a peeved Apollo and a pesky rhetorical wunderkind like Sokrates, and things get exciting (seemingly?).

The cover for The Just City was recently released, along with its sequel The Philosopher Kings.
