Signings at Forbidden Planet (the one in London)

Yep, this post is only really any good to people either living in London or those that can get there fairly easily. The Forbidden Planet Store has got some cool signings coming up so I thought I'd let you all know just in case you fancied making the trek :o) (Which as got me thinking now, what's the furthest distance you've ever travelled for a book signing?)

Next week sees China Mieville signing copies of (and reading from) 'The City & The City' on Thursday, Charles Stross signing copies of 'The Revolution Business' on Friday and Tony Ballantyne signing copies of his debut 'Twisted Metal' on Saturday. I'm going to be there for at least two of the three signings (Mieville and Ballantyne) and it would be great to see you there! :o)

I think Tony Ballantyne has already published an SF trilogy, so it's not his debut :-)

That said, these sound good and I'd like to get to China Mieville's. I'll do some balancing of the books and see if it's doable.

Oh yeah, and Patrick Rothfuss is in London at the end of May, and I'd be very surprised indeed if Forbidden Planet haven't tried to sort out a signing with him.

Dammit... Oh well, this one doesn't rank as high as my 'Canada isn't part of the Commonwealth' comment... :o)

I'm definitely going to be there for the Mieville signing, fancy a quck beer afterwards?

Patrick Rothfuss eh...? Sounds good. I'm also looking forward to the Mark Newton signing that FP have got coming up...

The books didn't balance unfortunately :-( I'll let you know if things change, but at the moment my next scheduled trip to London is for the Gemmell Awards in June. Are you going to that?

Graeme Flory said...

I won't be at the awards themselves (the cost of hiring a suit for the evening plus tickets was prohibitive for me!) but am up for a quick drink beforehand :o)
