Just a reminder, if you’re anywhere close to Indiana tomorrow, that I will be making an author appearance at Don’s Books in Kokomo tomorrow, Saturday, June 10, from noon until 2 p.m. I’ll be signing books for sure; I may also do a reading of some sort. Or possibly some interpretive dance. Or karaoke! It really all depends on the crowd. But, yeah, swing by and say hello and bring me things to sign. Because I’ll sign them, all right. I’ll sign them like you wouldn’t believe.
Via my superultramegafabulous publicist Dot “I’m superultramegafabulous” Lin comes a review of The Ghost Brigades that managed to slip under my obsessive-compulsive data-gathering radar. It comes from the Dallas Morning News, and it starts with a fun bit of hyperbole: “If Stephen King were to try his hand at science fiction, he’d be lucky to be half as entertaining as John Scalzi.” Well, bless you, Victor Godinez (he’s the reviewer). Of course, King has tried science fiction, with Tommyknockers and Dreamcatcher and most recently with Cell. I’m not entirely sure that I can rightfully claim that TGB is twice as entertaining as any of those (or sold as much as a tenth of any one of them). That Stephen King, he can tell a story. But I do appreciate Mr. Godinez’s sentiment.
