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.

I enjoy pie.

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…

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.)


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???


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.

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).

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.)
