SF in SF - This Saturday!

Hey, do you have plans Saturday? No? I'd love to see you at SF in SF, Science Fiction in San Francisco. I'm celebrating the re-release of my AFTERTIME series, and I'll be speaking with Matt Richtel, so it should be pretty lively. Doors (and cash bar) open at 6 and the event begins at 7. The organizers warn that you should take BART, as the parking's terrible.

Join us tonight for two local authors, and some thrilling science and history on tap for our event.  We are featuring New York Times, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Matt Richtel, who also writes the Rudy Park comics, and novelist Sophie Littlefield, who has racked up nominations for the Edgar, Macavity, Barry, and Crimespree awards, and won the Anthony Award for her work, and shines in both adult and young adult fiction. Each will be reading a selection from their new work, followed by Q&A with the audience, moderated by author Terry Bisson. Booksigning and schmoozing follows in the lounge, with books for sale courtesy of Borderlands Books.  Podcasting courtesy of Rick Kleffel, The Agony Column.  Seating is limited; first come, first seated.

MATT RICHTEL is a novelist, cartoonist and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the New York Times based in the San Francisco. He writes about technology, its impact on society, and how it changes the way we how we work, play, and relate to each other. His 2010 series, ‘Our Brain On Computers‘ focuses on how constant use of our devices impacts not only our behavior but our thought processes and even our neurology. His 2009 series about the dangers of multitasking while driving won the Pulitzer for national reporting.  Richtel's first novel, Hooked, was a national bestseller; its sequel, Devil’s Plaything, and the new, third, book, The Cloud, will be available for sale at the event.  In his spare time, he writes the syndicated daily comic strip “Rudy Park.” The strip, launched in 2001, revolves around the lives of regular patrons at an Internet cafe.  Richtel lives in San Francisco.
