München Says Hello

And they look happy to see you!
Folks, the München event was fantastic. Another great reading in German from another great actor (whose name, I believe, is Alexander Meiler, although I may have messed up the last name, so if anyone who was there can correct me, please let me know), a fine crowd, more excellent moderation from Sascha Mamczak, my German editor, who at the end the event also announced that Heyne, my publisher in Germany, would be buying Redshirts, so how awesome is that. And then dinner, where I ate Blutwurst because no one at the table seemed to think I would actually do it. Well, I did. So take that, sparkly vampires.
I know I sound like a broken record at this point, but wow, Germany is just plain awesome. I love this place. I’ll be sad to leave on Sunday. Happy to be going home, to be sure. But sad to leave.
Now off to collapse. See you all tomorrow.
Hope you said Hi for us!
Hey, I can see me!
Awesome reading, I think everybody had a great time.
Feeling a little silly – at first I wondered why all the people in Germany dress in black and gray…and then I noticed the photo is B&W. *facepalm*
It was a great event. Thank you very much.
They don’t look like Munchkins…
In your reports of traveling the US you regularly mention your troubles with flights – what did you think about your main means of transportation in Germany, trains?
I love them all over Europe!
I’m vicariously glad you have been having such a wonderful time in Germany. My father’s grandparents (or great-gp) came over from Germany, but I don’t know whether I’ll ever have a chance to go visit.
The event was really great, and I’m so looking forward to reading Redshirts now
Thank you for this wonderful look at Germany!
I hate Blutwurst myself, even though I’m 3/4 German. I can see why they didn’t think you would try it. You’re a brave man, John Scalzi, a brave man indeed.
Looking forward to Redshirts. After the reading last June in Seattle, I’ve been patiently waiting…
Glad you had such a great trip.
Second breakfast: Blutwurst and Weißbier.
I’ve had Morcilla in Spain, and I don’t imagine that its all that different from blutworst. Can’t say I found it all that appealing. I didn’t have any problem with it, but I didn’t really care for the taste. It mostly just tasted like liver to me.
You thanked the editor, the actor, the crowd, but thank *you* for stopping by :)
Fantastic evening, my wife and I had lots of laughs, and thanks again for both signing my Kindle and agreeing on doing the 2-Way Colbert with me! ;)
I’m so sad I missed your evening in Tübingen….I meant to go for sure but then my schedule messed up everything. I’ll console myself by reading Redshirts. Looking forward to it. Have a safe trip back and ..when do you come back to Germany?!
It is good you saved the best until last! To me, Bavaria is the real Germany although I am sure most Prussians would disagree! Lol.
I took that flight in 1966 and it isn’t any shorter now! May your seat be far from the wailing kinder!
You ate the Blutwurst, but did you like it?
Watch the DVD mate, you never know what might happen!!!
Thank you for coming over and sharing your time with us!
It was a very nice evening.
