If you are in or around Washington DC today, and you love science fiction and fantasy, you will want to be at the Washington Hilton between the hours of 5:30 and 7pm, at which time dozens of science fiction and fantasy authors, including Connie Willis, Joe Haldeman, Paolo Bacigalupi and yours truly, will be on hand to sign your books and make your day. Need books to sign? There will be books on hand to buy. It’ll be more science fiction and fantasy awesomeness in one place at one time than you’re likely to see in the nation’s capital for a long time. The event is open to the public (that means you). So come on down!
