Road trip

I'm off soon on a book signing mini-tour promoting Small Miracles. (I did local signings, in the DC area, in October.)

If you're in the neighborhood, consider dropping by. (I'm happy to sign anything I've written, so check your bookshelves.)

Read on for places and times:
Friday, December 4th, starting at 7:00 p.m.

   Barnes & Noble
   5400 New Hope Commons
   Durham, NC

Saturday, December 5th, starting at 1:00 p.m.

   Barnes & Noble
   300 Monticello South (MacArthur Center)
   Norfolk, VA

Sunday, December 6, starting at 11:00 a.m.

   Barnes & Noble
   345 Duke of Gloucester Street
   Williamsburg, VA

The Sunday signing, in Colonial Williamsburg, coincides with the Grand Illumination, the big kickoff event for Christmas festivities.

Hope to see some of you there!

Have a good time, Ed.

I finished Fools Experiments and enjoyed it very much. I particularly enjoyed how, while keeping it alien, you made The Entity a sympathetic character.. Sort of reminded me of the emergent web intelligence in Robert Sawyer's Wake, though of course the entities are quite different.

Hi Catreona,

Have a good time? That's the plan :-)

Thanks for your thoughts about Fools' Experiments. The Entity POV scenes are among my favorites. Part of what I set out to do was create a modern, SFnal monster that the reader would root for. As movie viewers root for King Kong and Godzilla ...

Rob Sawyer's Wake is an interesting comparison. There are quite a few points of similarity, but (as you say) we ended up going in quite different directions.
