A Philip K. Dick Award Finalist

A San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book

“A fine novel packed with vivid detail, colorful characters, and genuine insight.” Washington Post Book World

The year is 1967 and something new is sweeping across America: good vibes, bad vibes, psychedelic music, psychedelic drugs, anti-war protests, racial tension, free love, bikers, dropouts, flower children. An age of innocence, a time of danger. The Summer of Love.

San Francisco is the Summer of Love, where runaway flower children flock to join the hip elite and squares cruise the streets to view the human zoo.

Lost in these strange and wondrous days, teenager Susan Bell, alias Starbright, has run away from the straight suburbs of Cleveland to find her troubled best friend. Her path will cross with Chiron Cat’s Eye in Draco, a strange and beautiful young man who has journeyed farther than she could ever imagine.

With the help of Ruby A. Maverick, a feisty half-black, half-white hip merchant, Susan and Chi discover a love that spans five centuries. But can they save the world from demons threatening to destroy all space and time?

“Captures the moment perfectly and offers a tantalizing glimpse of its wonderful and terrible consequences.” San Francisco Chronicle

A harrowing coming of age. A friendship ending in tragedy. A terrifying far future. A love spanning five centuries. And a gritty portrait of a unique time in American history.

“Remarkable. . . .the intellect on display within these psychedelically packaged pages is clear-sighted, witty, and wise.” Locus Magazine

“Mason has an astonishing gift. Her chief characters almost walk off the page. And the story is as significant as anyone could wish. This book will surely be on the prize ballots.” Analog

“A priority purchase.” Library Journal

 Summer of Love Cover Final

Twenty five-star Amazon reader reviews
New Five-Star Amazon Review: “Just checked to see if this book was on Kindle. It has been many years since I’ve read it but I remember it as one of my very favorite books. Time to go back and re-read it!!!”

“This book was so true to life that I felt like I was there. I recommend it to anyone.”
“More than a great science-fiction, a great novel as well.”

“My favourite SF book of all time: beautiful, cynical, and completely involving” From Goodreads

5 stars Calling All Fans
“Summer of Love is an important American literary contribution that may very well have a strong and viable fan base. Where are you? Join us!
This novel is loads of fun to read. The majority of the characters are hippies from the 1960s who meet a stranger from the future who’s looking to save his world. This fellow, Chiron, needs to find a troubled adolescent teen named Susan (a.k.a. Starbright) for a very compelling reason. The book has a great deal to offer: swift action, lovable characters, spiritual insight, and well-chosen primary documents such as essays, poems, and news articles which round out the reader’s understanding of the worldview of the novel.
Some books talk about the sixties. This novel IS the sixties, thanks to the spirit and scholarship of its author. And, as one reader aptly put it, ‘the sci-fi stuff is just plain off the hook.’ Get a copy. Most people who have read it seem to respect it and enjoy it every bit as much as I do.”

5 stars I think it’s a great book. The level of character development is much higher than what we have come to expect in Scifi-Fantasy.

What I can add is that Lisa Mason has done a meticulous job of researching what the sixties were REALLY like, not the candy coated version of them which one normally sees in the media. That one could go to the Fillmore and see Quicksilver Messenger Service, Big Brother and the Holding Company, the Jefferson Airplane, legendary groups almost any night. The idea that this quality of music would last forever. The naive optimism about the future mixed with the omnipresent paranoia about the Man or the System. The wide open experimentation with living styles. The idea that anyone who dressed like you was your brother/sister. The dark side of “free love”. That someone with bell-bottomed pants and bare feet would hitchhike across the country to San Francisco with little or no money because a friend was there (somewhere) and a record said in the “Summer of Love”, all you needed was a “Flower in Your Hair”. The individual acts of giving and charity mixed with the fundamentally parasitic nature of the “Love” generation.

Ms Mason’s love of San Francisco shines through her story so one can taste and feel “Haight Ashbury” locale of the 60’s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Born in the wrong decade…shed a lot of light on my ideas This book is a wonderful book. I’ve read it approximately 5 times….My mom always used to tell me I was born in the wrong decade, and I believe that is true. This book was so true to life that I felt like I was there. I recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than a great science-fiction, a great novel as well This is a wonderful book for anyone who’s ever dreamed of time travel. It also shows you a first-hand view of the Summer of Love. Mason does an excellent job of describing her characters and how they feel, even when under the influence. Her view of the future seems realistic enough (although we’ll never know) and the way she twists the plot around Chiron, Starbright, Ruby, and the other characters is quite clever. All in all this is a book that I will read many times.

The year is 1895 and immigrants the world over are flocking to California on the transcontinental railroad and on transoceanic steamships. The Zoetrope demonstrates the persistence of vision, patent medicines addict children to morphine, and women are rallying for the vote. In San Francisco, saloons are the booming business, followed by brothels, and the Barbary Coast is a dangerous sink of iniquity. Atop Telegraph Hill bloody jousting tournaments are held and in Chinatown the tongs deal in opium, murder-for-hire, and slave girls.

Zhu Wong, a prisoner in twenty-fifth century China, is given a choice–stand trial for murder or go on a risky time-travel project to the San Francisco of 1895 to rescue a slave girl and take her to safety.

Charmed by the city’s opulent glamour, Zhu will discover the city’s darkest secrets. A fervent population control activist in a world of twelve billion people, she will become an indentured servant to Jessie Malone, the city’s most notorious madam. Fiercely disciplined, she will fall desperately in love with Daniel J. Watkins, the troubled, self-destructive heir to a fading fortune.

And when the careful plans of the Gilded Age Project begin unraveling, Zhu will discover that her choices not only affect the future but mean the difference between her own life or death.

Lewis Shiner, the author of Frontera in the Philip K Dick Award Storybundle, posted this review on Facebook after the bundle launched.

“I haven’t kept up with SF for some years, so I didn’t know about Lisa Mason’s SUMMER OF LOVE until she approached me about the PKD Award Storybundle (http://storybundle.com/pkdaward). I was immediately intrigued because I am currently working on a huge mainstream novel about the sixties that includes a long section set in San Francisco in August of 1967, which I had researched in print, on the Internet, and on the ground with the help of music historian Richie Unterberger.

The book completely knocked me out. I recognized everything, from the geography of Golden Gate Park to the stores in the Haight to the historical figures like Digger honcho Emmett Grogan (thinly disguised as “Leo Gorgon”) and biker Chocolate George (as himself). The Dead and the Airplane and Janis are all here–there’s even a historically accurate cameo by George Harrison. The fictional characters ring true, and they cover the spectrum from the childlike to the predatory. You can smell the pot smoke and patchouli and Loveburgers.

What elevates the book to greatness, though, is its heart and its moral center. Mason somehow captures the playfulness and guilelessness of the era without once turning away from the squalor and violence and hypocrisy. She has no sympathy for the narcissism of the Diggers, the sexism of the gurus, the foggy incompetence of the constantly stoned–and nothing BUT sympathy for the believers, the innocents, the ordinary folks trying to get by from day to day.

It is a tribute to Mason’s courage that, after showing us rape, addiction, rip-offs, and murder, she remains unshaken in her idealism. In this wonderful novel, the sixties are not a clown show or a costume party, not a joke or political cartoon. They are, as I believe them to be in my own heart, the key to the survival of the human race.

SUMMER OF LOVE is just one of 11 novels in the Philip K. Dick Award story bundle.”

So there you have it, my friends. The Philip K Dick Award Storybundle includes Aestival Tide by Elizabeth Hand (PKD Finalist), Life by Gwyneth Jones (PKD Winner), The Cipher by Kathe Koja (PKD Finalist), Points of Departure by Pat Murphy (PKD Winner), Dark Seeker by K.

Here’s the 1994 review of Summer of Love by Faren Miller in Locus, the Magazine of the Science Fiction Field:

“[In] Lisa Mason’s Summer of Love, the intellect on display within these psychedelically packaged pages is clear-sighted, witty, and wise.

If you belong to the boomer generation, you’re already a traveler in time. The world of 1967 had 30-pound ‘calculating machines,’ AIDs-free sex, largely voluntary homelessness amid continuing postwar prosperity; hip was ‘groovy,’ unhip ‘square’ or ‘plastic.’ For those in the right place, musical legends could be seen onstage any night of the week, five bucks a show. In short, a lost and now increasingly alien time. But it was far from an edenic Golden Age, as Mason soon makes clear. When Starbright (nee Susan Bell) runs away from her uptight and increasingly dysfunctional family in Cleveland and hops on a plane to San Francisco in pursuit of the hippie dream, she is engulfed in a scene mingling innocence and squalor, idealists and hustlers, joy and pain in equal measure.

Everyone who lived through those days, whether at their cultural epicenters or far on the sidelines, can look back with the benefit of 27 years’ hindsight. But young Chiron Cat’s Eye in Draco has a much farther way to go, in the eyeblink of near-instantaneous transport of the “ME3 Event” taking him from the San Francisco of the 25th century to the city chaotically celebrating the advent of the Summer of Love on Solstice Day, 1967. Chi is armed with centuries of perspective on the mess humanity was already making of its home planet: it will take all those centuries just to clean up after the profligate Industrial Age and advance a few cautious steps forward, into experiments with terraforming Mars and using a still not completely understood higher physics for a venture back in time. His armament also includes an array of ‘nutribeads’ and ‘prophylac’ wraps designed to shield him from the germ-crawling horrors of the past. Viewed from any standpoint but his own, he’s a slumming young aristocrat, absurdly finicky, unaccountably grave, and strange enough to be ‘far out’ yet not quite hip. He’s also a committed feminist, to the bemusement of most folk in that benighted year of ’67.

The plot element that brings Chi to the past, in search of Starbright, has that somewhat melodramatic air shared by most science-fiction notions-of-convenience, even in hard SF. Starbright is the most likely candidate for being an ‘Axis’ of catastrophic change in the ‘hot dim spot’ of 1967—a time whose archival remnants have begun to degrade in some bizarre space/time software glitch involving sinister antimatter doubles from an alternate universe and . . . well, even SF’s old master used such gimmicks at need.

However, the science fictional heart of this novel – its sharp intelligence – doesn’t need to rely on gimmickry. Cybernetics, sociology, ecology, and speculative physics all get their due in an atmosphere of mental exhilaration far removed from the Haight’s druggy ambience. Starbright herself is a bright girl, a one-time high school science whiz with a flair for mathematics that will help her calculate the arithmetic behind a San Francisco drug deal, if not the dangers of having anything to do with it. Chi, of course, has the brains to use his camouflaged future-tech with a good understanding of the principles behind it.

So, science is grounding as well as plot mechanism here. Well and good. But the wisdom of this book, along with its sparklings of wit, have a more immediate human source in a character more pivotal than any transtemporal Axis. That character is Ruby A. Maverick, proprietor of the Mystic Eye herbal/cosmic bookstore. Strong-willed businesswoman, sadder and wiser survivor of the Beat experiment, mixed-race black/Native America and ‘southern cream,’ she is a formidable woman even in her rare moments of vulnerability, and not wet-behind-the-ears redheaded kid, not even a futuristic ‘Man from Mars,’ stands a chance of besting her. When Chi and Starbright both end up in her orbit, the byplay is delicious – and we see just how much a boy from the future can learn about himself and his times, from this woman of the past.

Summer of Love offers a whole array of beautifully portrayed characters along the spectrum between outright heroism and villainy. It turns a clear eye on a time and place whose own inhabitants experienced with blinkers on, whether these consisted of youthful self-absorption, hard-grained bigotry, or a haze of drugs. And it looks ahead, to a future whose relative wonders derive more from hard work, sacrifice, and a painfully achieved maturity than from the whiz-bang baubles of limitless high technology.

Not what you expected from a book with flowers in its hair? Well, make no mistake, this is a remarkable second novel from another in the sudden array of talented, new, coincidentally female SF writers who seem ready to provide their own definition of a Golden Age for our field.”

Yep, we had an earthquake this last Monday at about quarter to seven in the morning. A loud BANG, the seismic closet doors rattled vigorously, then it was over. The ones that last a second or so are much easier to take than the long rollers, which are pretty nerve-wracking. No damage was done aside from a picture that swung a bit askew. Athena ran and hid beneath my night table.

I remember when I moved to San Francisco from the Midwest to take a job as an attorney in a law firm. Our offices were on the twenty-second floor of Two Embarcadero. The very first day I nervously reported in to work, the San Francisco Chronicle ran a front-page story. Seems some wags down at Stanford University ran a computer simulation of what would happen to the city if the Big One struck. They reported that Two Embarcadero, and all of the Embarcadero Center, would sink in the landfill the skyscrapers were situated on up to the twenty-first floor. “Cool,” the guys were joking. “We’ll break the plate glass and just walk out.”

That was so funny, I forgot to laugh.

The earthquake yesterday morning was only a four-pointer. The reason we felt it so strongly is that the epicenter was on the Hayward Fault in the Oakland Hills. Below Piedmont. Hilarious.

And reminded me of SHAKEN:

Emma J for Joy Pearce is at her editorial offices on the twenty-second floor of Three Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco when the long-dreaded next Great Earthquake devastates the Bay area.

Amid horrific destruction, she rescues a man trapped in the rubble. In the heat of survival, she swiftly bonds with him, causing her to question her marriage to her long-time boyfriend.

But Jason Gibb is not the charming photojournalist he pretends to be. As Emma discovers his true identity, his mission in the city, and the dark secrets behind the catastrophe, she finds the choices she makes may mean the difference between her own life or death.

SHAKEN is an ebook adaptation (and major expansion into short novel form) of Deus Ex Machina, published in Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine, republished in the anthology Transcendental Tales From Asimov’s (Donning Press), and translated and republished in magazines worldwide.

A list of Sources is included in the ebook.

Of The Gilded Age, the New York Times Book Review said, “A winning mixture of intelligence and passion.”
