If you live in Ann Arbor, and your Sunday is looking to be a vast expanse of nothingness punctuated bathroom breaks, I would like to take this moment to remind you that at 2pm Sunday at Ann Arbor’s Downtown Library branch, Toby Buckell, Paul Melko and I will be on hand to talk about the current state of science fiction and to sign books which will also be available to purchase, through the good graces of Nicola’s Books.
You folks are in for a treat, since I’ve done panels and presentations with Toby and Paul (who did a mighty thing by allowing himself to be roped in when Karl Schroeder had to step away), and it’s always a heck of a lot of fun. It’s hard to imagine you won’t be entertained. This is my only public appearance in Michigan for the rest of 2008; after this comes college football season and then anyone from Ohio is looked upon with suspicion until after the bowls. I suspect that Toby and Paul will be likewise embargoed for their Ohio citizenship. So get us while you can.
Folks in the Dayton area (and surrounding environs), remember that Toby and I will be making a stop at Books & Co at the Greene (that’s the big new one, in the big new shopping mall) on Tuesday, August 26 at 7pm. We’ll be reading and signing and schmoozing. And then Paul Melko joins us again and the three of us descend on Lexington, Kentucky on Friday, August 29 at 7pm at the Joseph-Beth there, for more science fictional hijinx and zaniness. Don’t worry, I’ll remind you again about these two, probably on Monday.
Hope to see you at one or the other of these, that is, if you’re actually sort of near these appearances. I don’t expect you to fly in from, say, Phoenix or Anchorage. But if you did, well, I guess that would be fine, too.
