Books Reading Tonight

Hot diggity damn, is it good to be back.
Unfortunately, there aren’t so many exciting readings tonight. There’s an open mic and David Knibb, the author of Grizzly Wars, is reading at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. On initially scanning the title, I thought that Grizzly Wars would be a kick-ass science fiction novel, wherein warring countries would fight using cybernetically enhanced bears as their proxies. This is not the case.
According to the book’s website, it’s actually about “the policy and political issues involved in managing and attempting to save any species, especially one that can pose a grave danger to human beings. The author looks at the grizzly bear recovery areas on both sides of the border, from the North Cascades to the Northern Rockies.” It sounds good, but not quite as mind-blowingly awesome as my sci-fi idea.
If anybody would like to steal my idea and use it for National Novel Writing Month, which starts in two short weeks, feel free. Just remember to thank me when the book gets published.
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
