Thanks to everyone (especially Neal Stephenson) who came out to last night's Walkaway event in Seattle: if you're in the area and couldn't make it, you get another chance tonight when I'll be at Bellingham's Village Books at 7PM.
After the event, I'm driving to Vancouver for an appearance tomorrow at the Vancouver Writers' Festival, and then on Saturday I'm doing an afternoon event at my local bookstore in Burbank, the excellent Dark Delicacies, just before I hop in a cab to LAX to fly to the UK.
In the UK, I'm stopping first in Oxford (with Tim Harford), then London (with Laurie Penny), then Liverpool (with Chris Pak), then Birmingham, before finishing in Hay-on-Wye (with Adam Rutherford).
After that, the US touring resumes anew, with stops at Denver Comic-Con, San Diego Comic-Con, Book Con NYC, Printer's Row Chicago, and Defcon in Las Vegas.
Can't wait to see you!
