I’m a little late getting this information out on this particular portal (plus I gotta iron some clothes and try to look “presentable”), so I’m going to keep this short.
We’re headed to the LA Times Festival of Books. Today. To sign books. Today. In like three hours.
So come on down and see us!
No astronaut ice cream this time, as we still don’t have instantaneous matter transport capabilities on this podunk backwater planet we call home, but we will be providing readers with a smile and a handshake, as well as a personalized message of spacely well-wishing for those who purchase a copy of the book. Plus, you know, it’s hilarious. Buy it already. Buy it.
Just buy it.
Here’s the pertinent info:
LA Times Festival of Books is at USC this weekend — check out the official website here to figure out how to get there and so on.
We’re there today, Saturday, signing at 1 p.m. at Mysterious Galaxy Booth #368.
While I’m at it and procrastinating a bit, lemme shill for a great author. You’ll definitely want to come back to the festival at 1 p.m. on Sunday to meet Stephen Blackmoore at the Mysterious Galaxy booth, and grab copies of his book Dead Things and its sequel, Broken Souls (among a bunch of others). I myself just finished reading Dead Things a couple weeks ago and dug the hell out of it — watch this space for a review sooner or later. If you’re into urban fantasy with some wit and some ass-kicking, you’ll certainly want to read it. I’ll be using this opportunity to snag a signed copy of Broken Souls.
I’m struggling to find an up-to-date list of other authors who are signing at the Mysterious Galaxy booth this weekend, but I’ll impart more wisdom on cool books by cool folks on my Twitter feed should I have any (@philhornshaw).
Anyway, best way to get the info is to come to the Festival of Books and buy all the books and also say hi to the authors like us who usually are shut in at home wondering if what we’re doing is actually any good. So if you like it, come say hi. We’ll sign your book or your baby or your X-Wing or really whatever it is you might want signed.
