Tumwater, Liz Hand, and SF

I took a day trip downstate yesterday for a reading at the Tumwater library. Good crowd, especially for a weekend afternoon with decent weather, and I signed a bunch of stock for the local Barnes and Noble. Thanks to librarian Sarah Jaffa for inviting me and for taking me to lunch.

On the train ride home I finished reading Elizabeth Hand’s Available Dark, a fun, creepy, misanthropic murder mystery. Worth checking out, although if you haven’t read the first book in the series, Generation Loss, you should start with that one.

Tomorrow I fly to San Francisco for a trio of readings in the Bay Area. Monday night at 7 PM I’m at Book Passage in Corte Madera, Tuesday at 7 PM I’m at Borderlands Books, and Wednesday at 7:30 PM I’m at The Booksmith.
