I’ll be in Amsterdam the end of this month, where my Dutch publisher is releasing their edition of Authority, the second novel in my Southern Reach Trilogy. My two events are listed below–hope to see some of you there! Should be fun!
Friday, Feb. 27, 6pm–American Book Center, ABC Treehouse (Voetboogstraat 11 1012 XK). I’ll give a brief reading from the Southern Reach (what I call my “vegetation medley” and then be joined by Hugo Award-winning editor Ann VanderMeer and Dutch sensation Thomas Olde Heuvelt for a wide-ranging discussion, followed by a book signing.
Saturday, Feb. 28, 2pm–Sonic Acts Geologic Imagination Festival (Paradiso main halllocation; see info here). I will read from the Southern Reach and take questions, but I will also present some thoughts on relevant and outdated approaches in fiction related to ecology and the environment. “In this modern era, what constitutes escapism or commodification in near-future fiction, what are old ideas in new clothes, and what is truly revolutionary? How can the philosophy behind new ways of looking at the world inform fiction?”
Books will be available at both events. Click on links for any ticket information.
