Dammit. I'm not remotely near any of those places. If you come down to Atlanta, though, you can drink free at the bar my company owns. How else does one lure a Scot?

Thanks, Will. I'm not technically a Scot, but the offer is appreciated nonetheless. Unfortunately, these tours are a bit like rollercoasters - high speed, psychologically blurry and worst of all you can't jump the tracks or get out at any point.
Maybe next time around....

Darn, I'm in New York November 5th - 9th. But I guess it was quite a stretch to expect to see you in the US when I can't even manage London! Someday, eh? Best wishes for the tour.

I've just scratched the surface of Woken Furies so far, but I wanted to touch base on something:
My copy is bound upside-down. The cover and the interior text do not agree. I am neither bothered nor deterred by this. I'm just saying.
One day, when a first edition of this book is worth a bunch, mine'll be worth a bunch and a half. One hopes.

I really enjoyed meeting you in New York, Richard. I was the fool in the first row with about 40 of your books in various editions.
I was shocked at the limited turn out, but I'm certain your books will continue to earn fans.
I quite enjoyed the excerpt from 'Black Man,' and I look forward to its release. Your wit and candor made the entire process enjoyable and worthwhile, and I am quite happy I made the trip from Boston.

Hey Will - thanks for turning up, I'm honoured you made the long haul, and glad you thought it was worth it.
In fact the numbers were fine for me - I'm pretty comfortable with groups from three to thirty (legacy of 14 years in the classroom) - once you get much above thirty, I find you tend to be talking AT people rather than to them, which isn't my favourite mode of communication.
