I’ll be in gorgeous San Francisco this year for Litquake, a “nine-day literary spectacle for booklovers, complete with cutting-edge panel discussions, unique cross-media events, and hundreds of readings.” Come hear me read alongside Tim Pratt and Claude Lalumière as we celebrate the recent release of SUPER STORIES OF HEROES AND VILLAINS, now out from Tachyon.
From the Litquake site:
“Whether it’s poets reciting in a cathedral, authors discussing science versus religion in a library, or novelists reading in a beekeeping supply store, the goal remains the same: whet a broad range of literary appetites, present the literary fare in a variety of traditional and unlikely venues, and make it vivid, real, and entertaining. Now grown to the largest independent literary festival on the West Coast. . . “
Come help celebrate the launch of the supernew superanthology SUPER STORIES OF HEROES & VILLAINS! I’ll be reading from my story “Pinktastic and the End of the World” this Thursday, August 22 at 7pm at the Cedar Hills Powell’s Books here in sunny Portland.
