Scalzi & Buckell Together Again, 10/2 in Columbus, OH
Posted on September 30, 2008 Posted by John Scalzi 12 Comments
For those of you who live in or near Columbus, Ohio and would rather drag a rake across your eyeballs than suffer through the Vice-Presidential debates, allow me to offer you an alternate plan for your evening: Come see me and Toby Buckell do our nutty wacky science fiction author thing at The Ohio State University Bookstore (aka Barnes & Noble #218, 1958 North High Street) at 7pm, October 2nd! It will be more fun than watching Sarah Palin mangle sentence structure and/or stare at Joe Biden’s doll hair. This much I can just about guarantee.
So come on down — we’re looking forward to seeing you there.
But why would I not want to see the source material for this week’s opening skit on SNL?
I’m taking a half-day from work and making a road trip, so if you need anything from here in the Canton area – you know, steel bearings, superbly hackable electronic voting machines, tasteful Pro Football Hall of Fame collectors’ spoons or shot glasses – let me know.
I’d prefer to watch you live-mocking the VP debate, but you’re pretty entertaining on your own. Plus the whole I won’t be in Columbus until next weekend.
Ohio is not near Seattle. (sadness)
Are you doing anything out Seattle way one of these days?
You won’t be biting people again, will you?
Awesome. I am off Thurs and will be there. Hopefully you and Mr Buckell will be able to dispel some of the miasma of evil left over from the McCain/Palin thing (Get Off My Lawn Tour 2008) from yesterday
I wish CNN would provide me with a video special including transcript of that event instead of the vice-presidential thingy :-)
As much as I want to get my books signed, 6 hours one way is a little much on a Thursday. I will now attempt to use my mand control to get you to come to Rochester, NY……. Did it work?
On a side note, there is a new Barnes & noble at RIT that would be a good spot.
More evidence for my husband’s premise that we never should have left Columbus. ;)
Dammit, wish I was in Ohio at my sister’s house. Then I would definitely drop by to catch sight of your bald head instead ;-). (And get a signed copy of the newest book!)
I had this written down as being the 3rd….so I took up a friend on an offer of box seats for the Jackets game that night. Doh!
Darn it. I plan to be there but it is too early in the season for me to have any home made bacon ready for bating author traps.
