A new video interview.

Here’s a new video interview for those of you who are into that sort of thing.

Click here for the goods.

I did this one when I was over in London. I haven’t watched it, because watching myself on video makes me squirrely. But I probably say some interesting things. I guess. There’s probably cussings too.

Huh. I just went over and read the description of the video. Apparently I’m “erudite.” Go me.

Share and enjoy,

Home again, Home again, Jiggedy Jig.

Merciful Buddha, it’s good to be home again.

Don’t get me wrong, traveling abroad was a wonderful adventure, and I have many exciting stories to tell. But I got sick a few days after my London signing/reading and after that the trip was not so much fun. My memory of that last week blurs because I was either in terrible pain, under the influence of powerful drugs, or both.

Take my reading in Manchester, for example. I’m dimly aware that I might have said something about wanting to mess up Joe Abercrombie’s pretty face.

Like I said. Powerful drugs.

Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know that stories and photos will be forthcoming. I’m brimming with things I’d like to write about: Taxis of various nations. My inappropriate encounter with Stonehenge. A list of historic landmarks where I have touched Sarah’s bottom….

I would have posted some of these stories sooner, but internet access was not easy to come by traveling in the UK. One of the many things I never appreciated about Stevens Point before was how easy it is to get wireless access here. There are three coffeeshops downtown with free wireless. No, wait, four. Five. Hell, my neighbors have free wireless, though I suspect that’s an accident on their part.

Yessir. This small town boy sure found out that the world can be a cold, unfeeling place. More specifically, I learned that it can be a place that tries to charge you 22 Euros a day for Wifi.

Personaly, I have better things to do with my money. Specifically: Ale and whores.

Man I really need some sleep.

But first, more drugs.

Until later,

pat

UK signings…

The Amsterdam signing was lovely. I have pictures that I’ll post up soon.

I wanted to post up the details about the London signing as soon as they became available, so here they are:

Thursday May 21st
6pm onwards
Signing
FORBIDDEN PLANET
179 Shaftesbury Avenue
London
WC2H 8JR

This will just be a signing, not the reading/signing/Q&A session I normally do. We’re having trouble finding a big space for a reading to hold a reading where we don’t start to violate fire codes if 100 people show up. So if you’re looking forward to hearing me talk, Manchester is looking like the better option.

I’m also hoping to have another signing in Taunton on the 26th, while I’m visiting Glastonbury. I’d like to do it, as it’s in a different corner of the UK. But I’m having trouble figuring out how I’m going to get there, as I won’t have a car, and there’s no train station in Glastonbury.

An Edinburgh signing isn’t looking likely at this point. Bookstores there seem strangely reluctant.

More soon,

pat
