I hope, dear reader, you have been enjoying this meager site so far. We will be taking a brief reprieve as S. J. has given me some leave to calibrate my keys, and she flies up to Raleigh-Durham, N. C. to meet up with Ann and Jeff VanderMeer for Bull Spec’s Cabinet of Curiosities Extravaganza at Durham’s Fullsteam Brewery (726 Rigsbee, Ave, Durham, NC), July 30 at 7 pm. Free and open to the public.
What’s this all about, you ask?
This is the official book release party for the new anthology from Hugo Award winning editor Ann VanderMeer and World Fantasy Award winner Jeff VanderMeer. While the focus will be upon The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities (HarperCollins), there will be discussion and signing of The Steampunk Bible (Abrams Image) by both authors, along with Triangle author and Escape Pod editor Mur Lafferty’s new fiction series. Special guests of the Cabinet of Curiosities Literary Extravaganza include Cabinet of Curiosities contributors Ekaterina Sedia, Mur Lafferty, Scott Eagle, and S. J. Chambers.
If you are in the area, go grab a pint, sit back, and enjoy the Lambshead/Steampunk madness!
