Cory in Boston today for finale of the Pirate Cinema tour

Yo, Boston! Today is the last day of my Pirate Cinema tour (after this, I'll be touring complete) and I'm wrapping it up in Boston, the 18th city in 6 weeks, where I'll be appearing at the Boston Book Festival, on a 4:15 panel with MT Anderson, Rachel Cohn, and Gabrielle Zevin. Come on out and marvel at my haggard appearance, my wasted flesh, and my improbable uprightness! Read the rest

Cory in Toronto today, Boston tomorrow

Hey, Toronto! It's my last night in town -- I'll be at Harbourfront's International Festival of Authors doing a double-act with China Mieville (there's still some tickets available). Tomorrow I'm off to the Boston Book Festival for the very last stop of the Pirate Cinema tour -- come on out and watch me attempt to stand upright (it's at 415PM, and it's free, but you need tickets). Here's the details. Read the rest

Cory in Seattle today, then Toronto and Boston

Hey, Seattle! I'll be in town for one day only today, making a pair of public appearances -- first at the University Bookstore at 1230h, then at Elliot Bay Books at 1900h. Both are free! From Seattle, I go east for the last two cities in my Pirate Cinema tour: first a pair of evening gigs at the Toronto Harbourfront International Festival of Authors (Oct 25: a joint reading with Larissa Andrusyshyn, Stuart Clark, Corey Redekop and Robert J. Sawyer; Oct 26, a double-interview with China Mieville); then a Boston Book Festival appearance on Oct 27 at 1615h. After that, I get to go home and see my family for the first time in six weeks (and belatedly celebrate my fourth anniversary, yikes!) (I have a very, very patient wife). Here's the full tour schedule, come on out and witness the miracle of my still being able to walk and talk after eighteen cities and six weeks! (PS: the Humble Ebook Bundle runs out in ten hours!)
