View From a Hotel Window, 3/17/22: Richmond

St. Patrick’s Day is rainy here in Richmond, but we’re still going to have a good time at tonight’s event, which is at 6pm at Sam Miller’s Restaurant, presented by Fountain Bookstore. Remember that proof of vaccination will be required, so be ready to show that off (I have mine on my phone).

Tomorrow: I’m in Brookline, at Brookline Booksmith, and everything happens at 7pm there. See you soon, Massachusetts!

  1. I would have left this on the post for the book, but comments seem to be closed: you slipped up and called Niamh “she” when they are talking to Jamie about nuclear power in Chapter 12:
    [She pointed at Kahurangi, who was also catching up on his reading. “This one’s whole damn country is a nuclear-free zone.”]

    Something to fix if you get to do revisions. :b

  2. De-lurking (after far too long) to say “Hello”! I’ll be at the Brookline event tomorrow. Hope tonight’s event is great and safe travels, John. Looking forward to meeting you.

  3. Poe spent a little time n Richmond. There’s a lacquer and perhaps a place he spent time. It’s been more than 25 years since I was last in Richmond. Anyway…

  4. Great to have you in RVA, John! Also, you were right: the job you read to us about is not a job whose particulars you ever want to know. Do not bruise the sweet fruit of fantasy by reaching out the brute paw of mere truth.

  5. John,
    Welcome to Virginia. I started out an Ohioan, did the nomadic job traveling, then ended up in Virginia about 16 years ago. I’ve had your book on order since a while back, but haven’t seen it yet. Can’t wait. I’ve got a whole rack of your books–not counting Kindle editions.

    Keep up the good work. From time to time, I reread the Old Man’s War books–kind of like spending time with an old friend.

    All the best,
