Last night

We had a great turnout for last night’s book launch event at Elliott Bay Book Company. Among the celebrities who showed up to wish me well were artist Ginny Ruffner, novelist Sean Russell, and my friend Neal Stephenson, who brought news that Paul Constant’s review of The Mirage is already being used to wrap fish and chip orders in town. Remember, book reviewer, thou are mortal!

Both the reading and the Q&A went extremely well, and I owe a big thanks to Paul for agreeing to be my onstage interviewer and to Elliott Bay for hosting me.

My next event will be a reading at the Ballard branch of the Seattle Public Library tomorrow afternoon (Saturday, February 11, at 1 PM) sponsored by Secret Garden Bookshop.
