Writer Max Barry Touring America

Well, just the fucking unimportant bits of it. It’s not like his damned book publisher saw any merit in his coming to the global fount of civilization, New York City! No, that’d be too obvious! After all, there are just most of the country’s major book publishers here! My God, and there are bookstores and people who actually read too! Some who, like me, have actually read Barry’s books!

You lucky bastards in the rightly-ignored parts of this country can see Barry at:

He’s going to be in Chicago at a place open at 7:30PM? Doesn’t that pretend city have a law that says everyone has to be at home and all businesses closed by 7PM? It damned well seemed that way the three traumatic times I had to suffer that disgusting place. (M. Dylan Raskin, I hate it too!)

To keep up with more details of the schedule, click here. He also has his very own website. Learn about his excellent books: Syrup, Jennifer Government (what a title!), and Company. And then go buy them and read them! Especially if you’re in one of those hellholes he’ll be coming to. God knows it’ll be the only taste of culture you’ll have in those places!
