Please join Backbeat Books & Music for a fun, casual reading to celebrate the launch of Greg Bechtel’s debut book Boundary Problems, on Saturday, May 10th.

Secrets, paranoia, conspiracies, and magic—Greg Bechtel’s tales don’t hold back. Whether his characters are trying to figure out why they’ve hijacked a car or are meeting a mysterious group in the middle of the night at Tim Hortons, these stories vibrate with energy and crackle with meaning.

Greg would be happy to sign books and answer questions about publishing his first book.

About Boundary Problems:

“Where magic meets physics, Bechtel writes in the dynamic margins of possibility.  Boundary Problems is a mind-bending vacation from the ordinary.” — Saleema Nawaz, author of Bone and Bread and Mother Superior

“Each of Greg Bechtel’s stories is a perfect little puzzle-box: one marvels at their perfect geometries while anticipating that dazzling moment where every piece slots flush. These finely-crafted, emotionally resonant tales will stay with me a long, long time.” – Craig Davidson, author of Cataract City and Rust and Bone
