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.


Next up: magician Francis Menotti.

Your stack of books
is bigger than his stack of books.

Re: Your stack of books
Yes, but they are all his books.

I suppose I just have stack envy.

Battle Royal
I need to go to New Mexico (I have been before but just passing through) and check out your theater/bookstore/literary goldmine! One day.

Off topic. Who win in a battle royal/free-for-all/to-the-death at their peek with weapons and armor of choice?

1. Jaime Lannister
2. Grey Work
3. Oberyn Martell
4. Khal Drogo

Me and my twin brother have been debating this for years, and considering a match between any of these at their peek is now impossible I hoped a speculative answer was possible. Thanks again.

And sign books are available online?

I am so psyched these are being filmed now!

It's great that you're having Francis perform at your theater. We were both students at Penn State at the same time. I met Francis through a friend that was in the magician's club. Francis was the president so I got to hang out with him on several occasions. I think it would be difficult to find someone who cares and knows as much about magic -- its history and artistry -- as he does. He was already a very good magician in his early twenties. I can't imagine how good of a performer he is now. Should be great shows!

JCC Events
These events you're having at JCC sound like a blast!

We were hoping to stop in later this year on a cross country trip we had planned, but an unexpected family medical issue has sadly rained on our parade and cancelled our trip for the summer. Still hopeful we'll make it out sometime in the future.

Keep up the great work!
