This is me becalming myself before the reading. Yes, that's a flask of single-malt I'm holding. I think of this as my Samuel Beckett photo.
Turnout was pretty good.
I signed a load of books, which pleased me and Third Place Books. They promise to order even more books, which I'll go back and sign. Third Place Books is incredibly author-friendly and I'm honored that my first event happened in their immense and beautiful store. I was also wise enough to use my 20% "featured author" discount to pick up copies of The Bridge Over the Neroch: And Other Works by Leonid Tsypkin, Appointment With Death by Agatha Christie, and The Tragedy of Mr Morn by Vladimir Nabokov.
