Don’t let us be the only ones there!
On October 11th, Phoenix Books will be hosting two science fiction related events: Star Wars Reads Day, and the next installment of the Vermont SF Writer’s Series event, War Stories!
Star Wars Reads Day
Starting at 1:00pm, Star Wars Reads day is an international celebration of Star Wars books held each year. It was created by Lucasfilm and its publishing partners–Abrams, Chronicle Books, Dark Horse, Del Rey, DK Publishing, Random House Audio, Scholastic, Titan Magazines and Workman, and actively works to promote reading of all types.
Joining the event will be members of the 501st Legion’s New England Garrison, who’ll be on hand to pose for pictures. The store will also have Star Wars-themed crafts, and more! Costumes welcome.
Following Star Wars Reads Day, Geek Mountain State is pleased to present War Stories: New Military Science Fiction, an anthology edited by GMS founder Andrew Liptak. He will be joined by two of the book’s authors (potentially others), to read several of the stories from the anthology, to answer questions and to sign copies. Joining the event will be James Cambias and F. Brett Cox.
This event will start at 4pm.
The weekend before last, ReaderCon took place in Burlington MA, where a ton of science fiction authors (and Vermonters!) gathered to talk, read, buy books and discuss the genres that we really love. Among the programming items was F. Brett Cox, who took to the stage on Thursday night to read his story, Where We Would End A War, which is appearing in the forthcoming War Stories anthology.
