I’m flying back from the West Coast today, which means there are some silver-signed hardbacks of Updraft available at Borderlands – San Francisco, Mysterious Galaxy – San Diego, and University Bookstore – Seattle. Such an amazing time at all three. Here’s a quick shot of the University Books crowd. More on that soon.
I have new posts going up at The Arched Doorway (A cartography of maps), Vampire Book Club (looking at things upside-down), an interview at Writers after Dark, and a post on Starships and Dragonwings (about that wingtest…).
