The release of The Brightonomicon is upon us.
Well its going to be fairly busy now for a while, and hopefully youíll
take advantage of all the stuff thatís going on, and come down to a
signing or an event.
Robert has also just released a new Audio CD of the Hollow Chocolate
Bunnies of the Apocalypse, and we have a link to it from our website.

Now, the signing tour in full.
First we have the book launch of The Brightonomicon in Brighton.
Waterstones are limiting the amount of people who can attend the after
hours talk and signing to 100, so you need to cal them asap and book
your ticket. Tickets for the Waterstones signing are £3, but its
redeemable against a book purchase. Also, if the tickets sell out Ė do
not panic.There is an after signing party arranged in the Polar Bar pub.

We will then be moving to the Polar Bar Central, on Queens Rd, sometime
after nine, which is between Waterstones and the Railway Station, backs
onto the Lansdowne Lioness and is close to the railway station, for
those of you from London or further a field. We have reserved the
upstairs room, and tickets will be available at the signing so people
there know where to go, but you know, so just pop along to the Polar
Bar, if the bookshop sells out.
Most evening signings are now events, and tickets may be required, and
there may be a charge, sometimes this is redeemable, sometimes there is
wine, sometimes its just a charge. PLEASE contact the individual branch
NOW, to book a ticket and confirm arrangement, the last thing we want is
disappointed fans, so call and ask what the story is.
