Toronto this weekend: Chapters Markham & World Fantasy (sold out, 1 membership available!)Posted on 11.01.12Categories: People In SF Signings/tours Other Books Conventions Short Fiction
I've flown up to Toronto for the World Fantasy convention. My schedule is below. I'm also doing an off-site bookstore signing at Chapters in Markham on Saturday. See below for details. Hope to see many of you there!
The convention is sold out—but I have ONE WORLD FANTASY MEMBERSHIP TO SELL. Pemberly was going to attend the convention with me after half a week in New York, but Hurricane Sandy changed our plans. So if you are in Toronto but don't already have a membership and are interested in seeing dozens of big-name authors and editors (everyone on this list and this list), consider buying Pemberly's membership. This is the most expensive convention that exists in the field (the cost is $250 Canadian), but if you're serious about publishing, it's worth it. A previous World Fantasy in Canada (in Montreal, 2001) is where I met my Tor Books editor, Moshe Feder. So if you're interested, drop me an email using the email interface on my website.
If you don't have any desire to go to World Fantasy but just want to get some books signed and ask me a couple of questions, I'd love to see you at the signing at Chapters!

***SCHEDULE CHANGE!*** Be aware that the signing is now in the afternoon, not the evening.
Note: If you want to come to this signing but want to read THE EMPEROR'S SOUL before this date, consider buying your book at this store ahead of time. Thanks! I will also sign any other book you bring that I wrote, but it's nice to support the store hosting me by buying at least one book (by any author) in the store that day.
