Charles Yu

Listed alongside geek buzz like the unveiling of Thor, Avengers, and Green Lantern, Charles Yu's How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe was named one if io9's biggest winners of Comic Con 2010. And then I saw Yu's changed cover art over at Caustic Cover Critic.

How to Live... comes out September 7, 2010 and the description says that his debut novel is "a razor-sharp, ridiculously funny, and utterly touching story of a son searching for his father...through quantum space–time."

From his Random House author page: "Charles Yu received the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 Award for his story collection Third Class Superhero, and he has also received the Sherwood Anderson Fiction Award. His work has been published in the Harvard Review, The Gettysburg Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, Mississippi Review, and Mid-American Review, among other journals. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Michelle, and their two children."

He had me at "quantum." I'll look forward to reading both of Yu's books.

I'm not a huge sci-fi reader, so, would this be like Joy Luck Club but with a dude and his dad...and...lasers?

If so, awesome. If not, I better get writing.
