Thank you, Inquiring Minds


November 4, 2013 by Laird

A terrific reading at Inquiring Minds last night, thanks to Deborah and the rest of the staff. Jessica emceed the event with aplomb. The store was packed and John and I signed numerous books before and after the main event.

John read the opening from his meta-horror tale “The Revel.” He crushed it. I’ve been to many appearances with JL; this one was exceptional. The reading space at IM is intimate–the author is seated five feet from the front row of the audience, so it’s a different experience from most venues. There’s a sort of MR James reading a Christmas ghost story to friends vibe and I think that brings out the best in us. I drank a hell of a lot of McClelland’s and read “Slave Arm.” Afterward, we had a fifteen minute Q&A. More scotch, cookies, and mingling with guests. Then the staff threw us out.

    It was a terrific event. You were amazing as always!
    Slave Arm was quite the crowd pleaser. I’m so glad that I was there to witness that moment in history!!
