Bruce Sterling’s new book is out and he’s giving LA the shaft on the promotional tour. Man am I bummed! He’s one of my all time favorite authors. I’m sure it’s his publisher and not Bruce himself but it’s just a load of crap. I’m going to have to drive to San Diego to see him now. I’d rather just go back to Chicago for the signing and pull my mint condition galley proof of Schismatrix out of storage and have him sign it. It’s one of my prized possessions hence me not trucking it around the country. Anyway it’s still a load of crap.
