Book Signing! Mike Carey & Kate Griffin...

A signing session for two of my favourite books, could anything be more cool than that? In a strange twist of fate I may be on holiday then but if my passport doesn't turn up on time I will be sure to be there. Here's the blurb that the friendly little automated email, from Forbidden Planet, sent over...

Join Mike Carey and Kate Griffin at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 26th March 6 – 7pm.

Mike Carey is an extremely popular and well-respected author who has written on several top comics titles such as Lucifer as well as the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Thicker Than Water returns us to the life of Felix Castor, where memories thought left in Liverpool resurface in London. Childhood memories, family traumas, sins old and new come back to torment the city’s favourite freelance Exorcist. Things go from bad to worse until the only question left is – just how much will Fix have to pay..?

Kate Griffin is the name under which Carnegie Medal-nominated author, Catherine Webb, writes fantasy novels for adults. A Madness of Angels is a book about the power of London, Urban Magic, ebbing and flowing with the rhythms of the city, amking runes from the alignments of ancient streets and humming with the rhythms of trains and buses. This is the London of Matthew Swift, where rival sorcerers do battle for the soul of the city.


If you happen to find yourself in London on the 26th then this will be worth checking out... ;o)

Well I am so jealous when I see this book signing dates. I would really like to have the possibility to atend them (maybe I'll ask Jean-Luc Picard for some teleport secrets :D).
And as I just finished "The Devil You Know" and I liked it my jealousy is growing.
