Blackwells have organized an evening launch for Ken MacLeod's new novel The Restoration Game at the Pleasance Theatre in Edinburgh (on The Pleasance), at 7pm on Wednesday the 17th. Tickets are free from the front desk at Blackwell Bookshop, 53—59 South Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1YS.
Confusingly, the book in question isn't due out until July (these gigs are scheduled months in advance, so occasional whoopsies happen: in this case, the publication date slipped). But not to worry: Ken's doing a reading from "The Restoration Game", I'm doing a reading from "The Fuller Memorandum" (which is also not due out until July), and then there'll be a panel discussion on the state of Scottish SF chaired by The Scotsman's SF critic and reviewer Andrew J. Wilson. And there will be books on sale, a signing, and a retreat to the pub led by the survivors. Time traveling bibliophiles especially welcome.
