    I thought I'd make a generic thread, rather than an author specific one, so apologies if you miss this and want to complain after you've missed the one I've come to post about!


    This year, World Fantasy Con is is England. Brighton, to be specific.

    That means for the first time in more than four years, Im heading over the big water.

    And since Im going to be over in England, it seems a little silly for me not to do a couple events.

    And if Im going to do a couple stops in England, it would be impolite for me not to swing by Spain for at least a couple days. Because I have a *lot* of readers there, and I had to cancel my tour plans there a couple years ago.


    Before World Fantasy con gets going, though, Ive got an event at the local Waterstones.

    Thursday, October 31
    7:30 pm
    Reading, Q&A, and Signing
    Waterstones, 71-74 North Street
    Brighton, East Sussex BN1 1ZA
    Facebook Event

    Theres somewhat limited seating at this event, so theyre requesting that you call and reserve a place in advance. The phone number is: 012732 06017

    The convention is sold out, but if youre already attending, my events are:

    Friday, November 1
    3:30-4 Reading Hall 8B
    7-10 - Mass Signing - Oxford Suite

    Saturday, November 2
    10-11am Best of all Possible Worlds Cambridge


    After the con, Im heading over to Oxford University, who have kindly asked me to come speak, do an event weve lovingly called An Evening with Pat Rothfuss, and run it all as a fundraiser for Worldbuilders. (Note: I made a special point of using the Oxford comma in that sentence.)

    Attending is free, but they will be happy to take a donation at the door.

    Monday, November 4
    7:00 pm
    Reading, signing, and Q&A.
    Harris Manchester College, Old Dining Room
    Mansfield Road, OX1 3TD
    Facebook Event

    Theyve asked people to RSVP, just so they can get a headcount and be properly prepared for the event. If youre planning on coming, it would be a good idea for you to e-mail them at


    Next stop is London, where Im doing a joint signing event with Scott Lynch. Ive recently been rereading the Gentleman Bastard books, so this is going to be a real treat to hang out with Scott and sign some books for yall. Afterward theyve set aside a bit of space for people to talk and do some informal Q&A at The Phoenix, a restaurant nearby, so keep that in mind as well.

    In Spain, Ill be making a few different stops. Ill have two events in Barcelona, with the first being a full reading, q&a, and signing. Im going to go far, *far* outside my comfort zone, and try to read The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle in Spanish.

    Erm, Katie Price is coming to Macclesfield next week.

    Does she count?

    Probably not, she isn't the brightest.

    She visited one of the companies in our building, did a massive shite in the toilet, but didn't flush it, the manky cow. According to people allowed in the ladies bogs anyway.

    @DaM Did you obtain a piece?

    I recognise those syllables, but not in that order.
