Scalzi in Santa Fe

Bestseller, Hugo Award winner, former SFWA president, blogger, bon vivant, and the world's leading expert on taping bacon to cats... John Scalzi is a man of many parts.

He made a whirlwind visit to Santa Fe yesterday, and the Jean Cocteau was thrilled to host him.



He did not actually sing in the rain. But he did play a ukulele. And he talked. And laughed. Ate a churro and some carne adovada. And signed a LOT of books.



(That's me and Steve Gould with him in the picture)

If you couldn't be there, hey, no problem. We'll be putting up a video of our talk. And we made him sign stock before we let him go, so you can get your autographed copies of THE COLLAPSING EMPIRE, OLD MAN'S WAR, and REDSHIRTS (winner of The Big One) from the Jean Cocteau website.

April Autograph Special

The bookshop at the Jean Cocteau Cinema is having a special for the rest of the month on autographed copies of HIGH STAKES, the latest volume in the Wild Cards series.

HIGH STAKES normally retails for $27.99, but for the rest of the month we're cutting five dollars off and offering it for $22.99... while the supply lasts.



These are first edition hardcovers... all with four autographs. They're signed by yours truly, and by three of my participating writers, Melinda M. Snodgrass, John Jos. Miller, and Ian Tregillis. (You'll have to collect the rest of the signatures yourself).

ALL of the books at the JCC are autographed, fwiw. You can check out the full list on our website at http://jeancocteaucinema.com/product-category/author/
