Happiness and Other Diseases - A Reading by Sumiko Saulson

Vallejo Bookstore presents Bay Area author Sumiko Saulson reading and signing copies of her latest book Happiness and Other Diseases on Sunday, December 28, 2014 at 2:00 p.m.  This event is free to the public.

Ms. Saulson describes Happiness and Other Diseases as “a dark fantasy set in contemporary times but rooted in Greco-Roman mythology.  These are not the gods who sit upon high in Olympus; these are darker creatures that reside in the Demos Oneiroi, the world of dreams.  It is conveniently located in Hades, at the point where dead souls arrive.  It is, strictly speaking, neither horror nor romance, it has elements of both running concurrently through it.  As such, it can also be considered a dark romance.”
