|My book talk tonight!

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.

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.)

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.)
