Reminder: Appearance Tonight, 7pm, at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore
Posted on July 6, 2011 Posted by John Scalzi 14 Comments
That’s right! I will manifest, as if by magic, at the Mysterious Galaxy bookstore in San Diego. Once there, I will read from my upcoming novel, answer questions, sign books and battle evil mecha-droids intent on destroying this fair city. I know! Busy day, right? Well, it’ll be fun no matter what. So if you are in or near San Diego, I hope I’ll see you tonight.
as far as the mecha droids go, just flash that jaunty hat at them and youll have a pretty good chance of blinding them, at least momentarily which will then give Will Smith time to finish them off. Itll be a Smith/Scalzi buddy film. the closing scene will be Smith zmoking a cigar on the beach in San Diego, you playing uke, and your wives watching the sun set over the ocean.
Looking forward to it!
So with all this time on the road, have you collected any groupies yet?
Now I have the image of Scalzi appearing in a puff of smoke and wearing a wizard outfit, robe, hat and all. If this actually does happen, please, please, someone have a video camera on hand to capture the moment.
Since I can’t seem to post at the AMC site, it’s my sad duty to let you know here that Shia LaBeouf can’t spell his own name.
If there is no puff of smoke we will be sorely disappointed!
I just hope the shop isn’t as packed as the time Patrick Rothfuss was there, for purely selfish reasons. I’d like a place to sit and hear you. People were coming out the seams of the store during Patricks visit.
I thought Chicago was where the evil mecha-droids went to battle with the forces of maybe-not-quite-as-evil.
Please, please save my hometown from those evil mecha-droids! Your reward will be 1279xp, 67 credits, and this awesome gun!
I very much enjoyed the readings and the time you shared with us all. Pretty cool your wife and kid got to go with you while you are away on business.
You even tolerated a picture with a drooling fan (me) who didn’t even have the courtesy to use the hover hand. You are a patient man.
I also had fun at the reading. It was my first author event. I have your books and now I want your shirt!
@Greg van Eekhout, d’oh I should have dragged my copy of “Norse Code” there to bug you. Because who hates fans?!
@Scalzi; you were very entertaining, sir. This is the second time I’ve seen you at M/G and I’m glad I attended both times.
@michael: John was, indeed, a hoot. And a veritable education in a human suit. (I’m trying to make it to all the Clarion instructor readings this year, and I absolutely do not hate fans, so …)

Wait, Chicano supremacists are attacking on AT-AT walkers?
