  • Check out what just showed up on my doorstep! Seriously thought about putting this in the Shack's "things that are awesome" thread, 'cause it is. So yea, guess what will be taking my attention away from the draft this weekend. It'll hit bookshelves on the 30th if you want to get it, which I highly recommend. Joe's a great author, one of the best horror writers today. He's also going to be at the U-Dub bookstore for a signing on May 18, for those interested.

  • I'll just mention for anyone that wants the book signed; but can't make the signing. That specific UW bookstore (them main one in Seattle) usually gets some signed books and puts them on the shelf(face value). Just look for the gold sticker. I've gotten some signed Niven, Bear and a Pournelle book that way.

    What if we can't make the signing due to being half a country away?

  • Joe's doing a whole tour of signings, most being in the NE as I recall. Dunno about signings in your area, but you can look it up. As I remember, you can also pre-order a signed copy from one of the bookstores in his area and have it shipped to you.

    Edit: Here's the list of tour dates. Mostly back east, but will be in Portland on May 17, and Seattle on May 18.

    And Here's the NY Times review. Yep. It's a good one.

  • Just happened to notice a crapload of them at Costco when I popped in to get a car battery. (That there's a good store. Auto maintenance and Horror fiction.)

    Didn't get, do want. Kindle.

    I highly recommend it, mate. It's a great book. Has much more a feel of Stephen King's really good stuff, after he got good, and before he started going downhill. Joe's a really talented writer, and it definitely shows in this book. And it's got a bit o' the ol' hat tip and ties to the Dark Tower series, as well as a few other alternate worlds.

  • Had a great time. Joe's the consummate professional, with a great mix of humor and seriousness. Thought I'd share the pics here.
