Forbidden Planet doing nothing but signings in September!

Well that's how it looks judging by the press release, check this lot out...
Coming up in September: -

Thursday 6th September 6 - 7pm - ADAM CHRISTOPHER will be signing the Forbidden Planet exclusive edition hardcover of SEVEN WONDERS, the follow-up to his astounding EMPIRE STATE. (Wouldn't mind going to this, we'll have to see...)

Friday 7th September 6 - 7pm - SCOTT K ANDREWS will be launching, for the first time in collected edition, his dystopian vision SCHOOL'S OUT FOREVER (I am there for this one, I've got my book ready and everything!)

Thursday 13th September 6 - 7pm renowned fantasy artist BRIAN FROUD will be signing his absolutely exquisite TROLLS, a fascinating revelation in to the world of rainbow waterfalls and shadowy thickets.

Thursday 20th September 6 - 7pm we will have star of stage and television John Barrowman, and Professor of English Carole Barrowman, upstairs, signing TORCHWOOD: EXODUS CODE... 

And simultaneously, DANIE WARE will be downstairs launching her debut title, the gleefully sardonic and genre-bending ECKO RISING. (Really looking forward to reading this one, might have to get it signed as well)

Saturday 22nd September 1 - 2pm, we'll have live dinosaur sketching (that's live sketching, not live dinosaurs) and a signing with STEVE WHITE for his astounding book of DINOSAUR ART.

Tuesday 25th September 6 - 7pm, we welcome back the king of British SF, PETER F HAMILTON, signing his latest title GREAT NORTH ROAD.

Wednesday 26th September, 6 - 7pm, we will have napkin-scribbling visionary BRENT WEEKS signing his amazing epic fantasy THE BLINDING KNIFE (probably not written on a napkin, in fact).

And we round off the month with a pre-FantasyCon Signing Bonanza from TITAN BOOKS, featuring GUY ADAMS, SAMIT BATSU, JOANNE REAY, KIM NEWMAN and DANIE WARE. (I have a couple of books by Guy Adams that I wouldn't mind getting signed, just need to find out the date...)
Thursday nights are tricky these days but there's a couple of events that I'd like to get to. Anything there takes your fancy?

Ooo, nice. If I can make the trip from the dark wilds of Cardiff I'll see if I can pop over to some of these. It always happens that whenever I'm in London something happens the day before or the day after.
