We will be discussing the novella This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone, this time with spoilers!

This program will take place at the Pride Center of New Jersey, 85 Raritan Ave #100, Highland Park.

Book description:

Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandment finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading.

Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, becomes something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future.

Except the discovery of their bond would mean the death of each of them. There’s still a war going on, after all. And someone has to win. That’s how war works, right?
