Just a reminder: I’ll be reading from The Dangerous Type at Borderlands Books in San Francisco on Sunday (July 19) at 3 p.m.
Please come! I’m nervous about having an audience.
The Dangerous Type has been described as La Femme Nikita meets Firefly or as the kick-ass and totally original love-child of Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s also been accused of bringing grimdark to space opera.
Sharing the bill is Robert Brockaway, author of The Unnoticeables. He describes it: “It’s part horror, part urban fantasy, part metaphysical punk rock pulp adventure (that’s a particularly weird part). The Unnoticeables is a bright, garish book—it’s silly and brash and dumb and it does not care if you know it—but it also gets incredibly dark in places.”
So keeping in mind that I truly believe morbid curiosity cures the blues, come to the Mission on a sunny Sunday afternoon and see if we can live up to the hype.
