Remember when I started out with the book club and I moaned about the lack of genre-events we were getting as a store? Well that seems to be turning around at a good pace and the latest author to enter our store is Adam Roberts. We read his Yellow Blue Tibia back in July and it got largely impressive comments and a very healthy score of 8/10. He's also written the introduction for books like The Inverted World, as well as reviews and academic papers and books on a plethora of other science fiction and fantasy titles and topics.
He's in Liverpool for the academic conference I've organised (full details here if you're interested enough to pay the £30 fee), and was gracious enough to agree to do an event in store the night before. Here are the details:
An Evening With Adam Roberts
Friday 17th June, 6-7.30pm
Waterstone's Liverpool One
Tickets £2, redeemable against any Adam Roberts book bought on the night
Official facebook event (for those who can)
Hope to see plenty of you there!
