View From a Hotel Window, 3/22/17: Raleigh!

Ahhhhh, there we go. Parking lot excellence.

If you’re in or around Raleigh tonight, I’ll be a Quail Ridge Books at 7pm, in its spiffy new location. Come on down!

In the Research Triangle but can’t make it tonight? I’ll be at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill tomorrow. See me then!

For everyone else not in the area, two interviews with me, talking about The Collapsing Empire and other topics: One at The Verge, and the other at The Chicago Review of Books. Get inside my head! Mind the low beams.

  1. I’m sitting at Quail Ridge right now! The folks already here are discussing a contingency plan in case you decide the WiFi is so good you won’t leave the room ;)

  2. Ok, I’m not there, but my preordered ‘Collapsing Empire’ has just arrived at 1.17 am British time and I am trying very, very hard not to open it because sleep and stuff. Life is good…

  3. Just finished Part 1 and enjoying it immensely.

    You’re not exactly … *subtle*, though, are you? You make it work, so I ain’t complaining, just observing. (I suppose it’s one of those “know the rules so you know when to break them” things.)

  4. John,

    You are a top story on io9 we come from the future right now. But it isn’t your fault. Vox Day (aka Shithead Beale) has published a book called Corroding Empire, by Johan Kalsi. The cover art is also stolen from your bound-to-be successful book.

    Shows what a dirtbag Beale really is::

    I am going to travel a little in April and a lot in May, and will try to hold off so as to have reading material on the road…… who am I kidding? I’m going to read it as soon as I can get one!

    Wonder how many will be ordered and returned???


  5. Yeah, I was there. Quail Ridge, not the parking lot. You were, and I’m assuming still are, awesome! When is the movie produced by Chad with Jack Black coming out?

  6. JR in WV:

    I expect Beale will have all the success he deserves with this endeavor, and other than that it’s not something I’m going to spend much time thinking about.

  7. Ahhh, I missed you tonight at QRB again for the umpteenth time. Darn schedule and/or spaciness! I live close to Raleigh, but I was already planning to come to Flyleaf tomorrow. See you then! :D

  8. Oh, happy day. Another car park building.
    And … I now know how to pronounce Nohamapetans.
    That leaves me waiting for the postal system to deliver Collapsing Empire down-under.

  9. Not there (I live in the UK) but I found Collapsing Empire in the local Waterstones today. Next on my reading list! (UK gets it in paperback so no expensive hardcover).

  10. [Deleted because off topic. Folks, let’s not give a troll the attention he wants (that’s not referring to you, Pedro) — JS]

  11. Ooooooh, multi level parking! Impressive!
    Already reserved my copy at Fountain Books, Richmond, VA. Hope to see you there! (I know you’ll be there, I’m hoping I’ll make it. It’s a three hour drive.)
