As expected today was a quieter day, but the quality was very high of stuff to collect. I managed to catch the tail end of the SFF discussion with Mieville and Ringo. I took a little video, but I haven't gotten a chance to download it to see if any was good. If so expect a post next week.
Here is the swag: [Signed] Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson (Tor) Surprisingly this was a finished book, not a galley as most other books I grabbed were. [Signed] The Affinity Bridge by George Mann (Tor) Steampunk. Nuff said. Hitchhikers Guide Limited Edition Promo Book for And Another Thing by Eoin Colfer (Hyperion)More about this later. [Signed] Salt Water Taffy by Matthew Loux (Oni) Because it looked fun. [Signed] Taking Woodstock by Elliot Tiber & Tom Monte (Square One) Because the movie looks good. Ask Arthur Frommer by Arthur Frommer (Wiley) Because I travel.
While in line for the Sanderson and Mann books I found myself behind the very friendly Literary Agent and fellow blogger Jenny Rappaport. Jenny represents David J. Williams and John Joseph Adams who I consider the best anthologist today. She mentioned a new project just signed for JJA, which is of course an anthology, but in this case all stories will be original instead of a mix of new and old reprints. It is tentatively titled The Mad Scientist's Guide to World Domination to be published by Tor. The premise is superhero stories from the villains perspective à la Austin Grossman's Soon I Will Be Invincible. Grossman is slated to contributing to the book. Sounds like it will be a good one, but alas it won't be out until 2011 most likely.
Tired. Feet hurt. Sleep now.
