A reminder that after my son Phil Barnett did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday and threw down the gauntlet to me, well… this happened.

• Finally, if you’re going to be in south-east England this weekend, remember that I’ll be SIGNING LIMITED EXCLUSIVE BOOKPLATE EDITIONS of both THE FUSE and UMBRAL at London’s Forbidden Planet Megastore on Saturday. Click that link for a peek at the bookplates, and more details on the signing times. Hope to see you there!
I’m grossed out by the kind of stuff tumblr does to its users over an extended period of time
Grammar and punctuation is completely lost on some people, to the point where their posts are unreadable and irritating
And tumblr fosters and feeds this incredible narcissism and need to impress people- people who don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
Too true. Too true indeed.
LONDON: Signing at Forbidden Planet Megastore, August 30
A reminder for anyone in or around London next weekend that I’ll be appearing at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday August 30, between 3-4pm.
(That’s next Saturday, not this bank holiday weekend.)
Eagle-eyed readers will note the date is just three days after THE FUSE Vol 1: THE RUSSIA SHIFT goes on sale, which is of course no coincidence at all.
But UMBRAL readers shouldn’t feel left out, because we’ve produced exclusive, signed and numbered limited edition bookplates for both THE FUSE and UMBRAL, featuring original art by Justin Greenwood and Christopher Mitten, for the event. We’ll give one away with each of the first 150 copies of THE FUSE and UMBRAL trade paperbacks sold.
(That’s them in the main image, if you hadn’t guessed.)
If you can’t make it to the event, don’t worry — you can also order these “mini-print” editions online, although priority will be given to people actually buying in-store on the day. Nevertheless, if you want to order online, check the event page for details.
And of course readers of WASTELAND, THE COLDEST CITY, DAREDEVIL, whatever, are all welcome, too. Come one, come all. This will probably be the biggest signing I’ve yet done, so try and get there early, or at least on time, if you can.
Hope to see you there!
