Just in case UK readers felt a little left out...

Here's some information on a couple of signings coming up soon at the Forbidden Planet store in London... (all taken from various emails and press releases)


Thursday 13th May 6 – 7pm

FORBIDDEN PLANET and Gollancz Publishing are delighted to be hosting an open-format, multi-author signing. At at 6pm on Thursday May 13th, Forbidden Planet 179, Shaftesbury Avenue, London will be playing host to: -

·Stephen Deas
·M D Lachlan
·John Meaney
·Sarah Pinborough
·Adam Roberts

Forbidden Planet and Gollancz Publishing have gathered a host of science fiction and fantasy talent into one event – an event to bring writers and fans together and to promote interest in new and different kinds of fiction.

This is a free-form and open signing, bringing the authors out from behind their tables and giving their readers a chance to meet them and talk to them about their work. An array of fantastic books will be on hand to be picked up and signed – including works by every one of the writers present.

The last sentence made me chuckle. Will the Gollancz authors sign anything that's put in front of them...? Not sure that I can make this one but it looks like it could be a lot of fun...

Three of the Best!

Thursday, 20 May 2010 6 - 7pm

Three huge talents; one signing event - FORBIDDEN PLANET are delighted to be hosting a triple signing with China MiƩville, Adam Nevill and Mark Charan Newton on Thursday 20th May at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8JR 6 - 7pm.

In China MiĆ©ville’s KRAKEN, a prize specimen has come to the Natural History Museum – a giant squid, whole and perfectly preserved. When it disappears, curator Billy Harrow finds himself in a city of warring cults and surreal magic – and the forthcoming end of the world.

APARTMENT 16 by Adam Neville is wonderfully written, deftly plotted tale of utter horror which will have you turning the lights on in the middle of the night. Follow and unravel the tale of Barringon House – and discover that the doorway to Apartment 16 is a gateway to something terrifying.

Two weeks in advance of publication date, CITY OF RUIN by Mark Charan Newton is the follow-on to the massively successful Nights of Villjamur, taking us back to the lands of the Red Sun. This time, we go to to Villiren, where Brynd and investigator Jeryd must fight to save a city that’s already in ruins.

I will definitely be about for this one, hope to see you there :o)
