    • Unfortunately, none of the US locations are reasonably close to home—it’s a big country—so I won’t be able to attend. I think @jpop is a fan of his work, so perhaps between the two of you success will be had in seeing William Gibson in person.

    • Nope. Only US, Canada & UK announced. I don't think I'll have the chance this time around, too far for me. But would definitely jump at a chance. Would love to get some of his books signed. And, of course, to scope which Acronym gear he travels with. :-)

      BTW, we're at that point in time when lucky Agency ARC owners are jumping on Twitter to rave about it, and first reviews are coming up, and I have to be extra careful not to stumble upon any spoilers. Argh. Green with envy.

    • I promise to not mention any spoilers. I was at a Mensa Trivia Night many years ago—great way to feel like you know next to nothing. Any way, this woman at our table starts screaming bloody murder because the host just read a question that mentions Dumbledorf was killed. And the woman was only half way through that Harry Potter novel(!).

    • Well, ok, that might be taking it a bit too far. :-) I mean, it's been more than 10 years since the books came out. I'd say the statute of limitations on spoiler warnings is about a month after the official release. After that, it's on you to be careful and nobody owes you anything.

      But, before the release? Man, you better watch out or its gonna be a mob with pitchforks and torches after you.

    • There is a profile of a William Gibson in the latest issue of The New Yorker: “How William Gibson makes his science fiction real.” I am planning to read it over lunch. I promise not to share any spoilers if they go into depth on his new novel.
