Reading Tonight

posted by on July 28 at 10:17 AM

We have an open mic and two readings tonight.

At Elliott Bay Book Company, Rick Bass reads from Why I Came West, which is a memoir. In addition to writing fiction, Rick Bass is a very popular nature writer. I’m always amused that his last name is Bass for just that reason. Also, his name reminds me of Kilgore Trout. Which makes me happy.

And at the University Book Store at 7 pm, Naomi Novik reads from Victory of Eagles, which is a book that wonders what wars would be like if dragons were real. Possibly more exciting than Ms. Novik’s reading itself is that the University Book Store is scheduled to be attacked by zombies tonight at 7:18 pm. But, according to the University Book Store’s own blog, they’re prepared for the zombie assault.


Clearly, that will have to be the reading of the night.

Upcoming, and hopefully zombie-free, readings are in the readings calendar.

Remember kids, it's not the lone 'hero' with an AK-47 or an Uzi or some such useless crap that survives a zombie outbreak, it's the quiet type who keeps his head down and gets the hell out of town at the first sign of trouble.

Naturally, by the time the zombies reach the U Bookstore, I will already be in Shoreline.

Now I know why I left Seattle - zombies never attack middle of the fuck nowhere. Not enough juicy brains in middle America. We just get alien abductions.

For the record, bring 'em on! I ain't afraid of no walkin' dead.
