China Mieville, Mark Newton and Adam Neville at Forbidden Planet London!

20 May

Hey everyone, I thought I’d post this for everyone who’s missed the news and who are lucky enough to live in London – Three huge authors will be at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore tonight!

Here’s the detail you need from the page on Forbidden Planet’s website:

Thursday 20 May 18:00 – 19:00
London Megastore

179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR

Three huge talents; one signing event – FORBIDDEN PLANET are delighted to be hosting a triple signing with China Miéville, Adam Nevill and Mark Charan Newton on Thursday 20th May at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8JR.

In China Miéville’s KRAKEN, a prize specimen has come to the Natural History Museum – a giant squid, whole and perfectly preserved. When it disappears, curator Billy Harrow finds himself in a city of warring cults and surreal magic – and the forthcoming end of the world.

APARTMENT 16 by Adam Nevill is wonderfully written, deftly plotted tale of utter horror which will have you turning the lights on in the middle of the night. Follow and unravel the tale of Barringon House – and discover that the doorway to Apartment 16 is a gateway to something terrifying.

Two weeks in advance of publication date, CITY OF RUIN by Mark Charan Newton is the follow-on to the massively successful Nights of Villjamur, taking us back to the lands of the Red Sun. This time, we go to to Villiren, where Brynd and investigator Jeryd must fight to save a city that’s already in ruins.

FP will have plenty of stock available of the respective novels, including Mark Newton’s City of Ruin (which is only being officially released on the 4th of June 2010!). 🙂 If you can’t make it to the event, FP is also allowing you to order the books on their site – they’ll get the ordered copies signed by the authors. Awesome, right?

So if you’ve made plans, cancel them and be sure to get there early! You may even bump into some of the awesome bloggers who make the blogosphere such a cool ‘place’ to be a part of. 🙂

Be EPIC!

    Kraken is definitely a great book, I love how China combined magic, apocalypse and Victorian England. Getting a curator as protagonist is also interesting and definitely thrilling because you cannot expect the character to be as athletic as the usual “hero” character.
