Coming soon to Seattle

Hey, Seattle -- I'll be there soon. Here's where you can find me:

Wednesday, March 19th / 7pm
PRE-NORWESCON AUTHOR PARTY
University Book Store
4326 University Way NE / Seattle / WA / 98105 / 206-634-3400 (Event made possible by the mighty Duane Wilkins of University Book Store....see you soon, Duane!)

I'll be signing copies of ELRIC: THE STEALER OF SOULS as well as my hardcover artbook COVER STORY: THE ART OF JOHN PICACIO.

Following that, I'll be at NORWESCON 31 (March 20-23). My schedule:

THE INVERTED FANTASY HERO / Thursday 9pm / Cascade 4
Panel discussion about turning "bad" character types and monsters into sympathetic protagonists and why we still love anti-heroes.

Seattle's a long way from here, so unfortunately, I don't make it there often. If you're in the area, don't be a stranger. :)

Oh, man. I was not going to go to Norwescon this year. Now I may have to finagle childcare for a daypass....

OOh, I'll be out of town march 19. However, I'll be home (West Seattle)on the weekend.

Hmmm . . .

Hi, ces --

Swing by if you can on Saturday! As you can see from the schedule, I've got a couple of program items on Saturday, including the slideshow at 2pm. According to the con's site, weekend passes are $60; Saturday memberships are $40. Not too bad. And if that's too much money, let me know sometime this week, and maybe I can meet you at the hotel bar and we can touch base for a few minutes on Saturday or Sunday. (FYI: Next week, I'll be away from email for much of the time.)

It was good to meet you and your wife, you crazy man. I say "crazy man" because I might, hypothetically have some incriminating pictures of you.

Heh.
Heh.
Heh...

Hi, Michael! Great to meet you as well. Good times next month in Austin...very much looking forward to it.

Hi, Cherie -- Hypothetical ncriminating photos, huh? Well, I'll make you a trade....you post those, and I'll post plenty of your favorite candid shots that you love oh-so-much. ;) Seriously though, it was a blast to finally meet you. Holler anytime...
