The annual Nebula Awards Weekend is coming up, and I’ll be in attendance. This year (and next) it’s being held in Washington, D.C., a not uncomfortable car trip for me. That’s especially convenient because it means I can load the trunk up with books I want to get signed.
That’s right, I said “signed.” If you’re in the area, you might be interested in attending the Massive Book Signing that’s scheduled for Friday, May 20th, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Attendance at the conference is not required, and there will be quite a few authors present to sign copies of your books, whether you bring them with you from home or buy them on site.
Here’s the list of authors scheduled to be there, and I suspect more will be added to the list:
John Joseph Adams, Christopher Barzak, J. Kathleen Cheney, Aliette de Bodard, Tom Doyle, Scott Edelman, Timons Esaias, Cynthia Felice, Andrew Fox, Kerry Frey, Laura Anne Gilman, Anne Groell, Joe Haldeman, Peter Heck, Vylar Kaftan, JohnKessel, Alethea Kontis, Mary Robinette Kowal, Geoffrey A.Landis, Allen Lewis, Tom Lewis, Lee Martindale, James Morrow, Catherine Petrini, Stanley Schmidt, Lawrence Schoen, Lansing Sexton, Bud Sparhawk, Allen Steele, Eric James Stone, Michael Sullivan, Robin Sullivan, Michael Swanwick, Brandie Tarvin, Mary Turzillo, Michael Whelan, Alexander Whitaker, Connie Willis
In particular, I want to point out J. Kathleen Cheney and Eric James Stone because along with other things I’ll have in the trunk of my car, I’m bringing assorted books published by Paper Golem, such as Alembical 2, which includes Cheney’s Nebula nominated novella “Irons Shoes,” and Stone’s brand new (and not “officially yet released”) collection Rejiggering The Thingamajig And Other Stories, which includes his Nebula and Hugo nominated short story “That Leviathan, Which Thou Hast Made.” These will be available for purchase during the signing. Also available will be my new novel, Buffalito Contingency, which also isn’t “officially” out either.
So come on down, join SFWA as we celebrate our own, and get some books signed (and, ahem, buy a few new ones too). And be sure to stop by and say “hi” to me.
