|My book talk tonight!
||[Jan. 22nd, 2010|08:42 am]
I have a slide show and book talk tonight in Philly!
Did you ever wonder what the writing spaces of your favorite authors looked like? So did I -- which has lead to me traipsing across the country for a year or so now photographing fantasy & science fiction authors in the places that they write. I'm going to be showing slides from that as well as behind the scenes slides from the Who Killed Amanda Palmer book. That will include a lot of out-takes, my favorite photos that, for whatever reason, didn't make it in (there is a LOT that you didn't see in the book).
This is Ysabeau Wilce in her writing space. Ysabeau wrote one of my favorite books lately, Flora Segunda: Being the Magickal Mishaps of a Girl of Spirit, Her Glass-Gazing Sidekick, Two Ominous Butlers (One Blue), a House with Eleven Thousand Rooms, and a Red Dog . She won the Andre Norton Award last year.
Harry Harrison is a grand master of science fiction who wrote the very popular Stainless Steel Rat books as well as Soilent Green. His spartan writing space doesn't match his enormous personality.
Friday, January 22, 2010 at 7:30 PM.
at The Moonstone Arts Center.
110 A S. 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA
conveniently located at 13th and Sansom Streets
in the heart of Center City Philadelphia.
Signing will immediately follow the event.
You'll also learn how a weird crop made this image make Not As Much Sense when printed in Who Killed Amanda Palmer, see alternate versions of images that did and much much more! (How could it not be fun?)
People have asked -- you do not have to buy something there to get it signed. I'll sign any old thing you bring along, previous books, concert posters, pictures of Roswell you've printed from the Internet. It's low key and guaranteed fun.
Thanks to everyone who shared their favorite animal rescue places and poured out The Love for Zoe. If she were here (or if you were there) she would have eagerly snuggled with each and every one of you. She's that kind of cat.
(And hello to everyone who came here via Neil's blog. I hope you won't be disappointed.)
Add me as a friend on LiveJournal, Add me on Facebook, Follow me on Twitter.
please do this soon in boston nd nyc!
i did it in NYC at the International Center for Photography last year. But it could happen again.
You know, Boskone is coming up soon. You going?
Thank you for the picture of Harrison, who is still one of my favorite SF authors for decades running. I owe him a lifetime or so of fandom for the "Deathworld" books alone.
You should come back to Seattle. :-D
You should bring your book talk to New Orleans so I can print out a picture of Roswell from the internet and have you sign it!
Plus, New Orleans is awesome.
maybe for mardi gras this year.
This is going to be my first Mardi Gras. I'm pretty excited. There's going to be a big art collective house having a Mardi Gras party/ concert in a giant treehouse they made out of playground equipment and satellite dishes.

Isn't it ,,Soylent Green'' ??
Yes, but properly, it's Make Room! Make Room!, which is the novel that Soylent Green is based upon. (And, if I recall correctly, the novel didn't have the twist ending of the movie.)

Was hoping to make it down tonight, but I'd hate to share the Arisia con crud with y'all. Hope it goes great!
bah, just sit in the back far from me!
I came here via Neil's blog, but a while ago. Right after the awesome photos of Cabal and associated author. And because I can't remember if I have said so during the time since; You rock. You and Trillian, both. Founts of inspiration and creativity!
And so for this, and in case you haven't already seen it, I give you 'A Knock on the Door', from Duirwaigh Galleries. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4CG18FPCj0
And one day I will have to write a letter to above mentioned author and thank him for all the things he have brought to my attention, outside of his books, such as Kyle Cassidy and freedom of speech.
Please come to Pittsburgh and do this. I know we're in the same state but it's a 6 hour drive plus finding someplace in expensive to stay and I'd have probably have to leave now to make it in time.
I second this request..pretty pretty pretty please?
Really wish I could be there to hear your talk tonight and I hope it goes swimmingly! I look forward to the day I finally get to meet you in person :)
Any chance that one day you might come to Australia? I'd love to see you and your work here!
I would totally love to come just to show some support! I'm so excited about the "Where I Write" book. I'm looking forward to seeing these pictures really big in a book so i can use a jewelry magnifine glass and look for waldo...Well not neceesarily waldo but maybe look at names on books etc heh
that is a rather wild photograph. I've yet to see the who killed amanda palmer book in person yet. But I do look forward in seeing it.
Well all and all, I'm getting more motivated to going back and doing photography and cinematography and music again once my life gets on some sort of routine. You, Amanda and Neil will be my motivators :D
Who can ever be disapointed in such a cool healthy cooking, cat and actress wife loving man who is able to work on job that he really enjoys?
