Woo-Hoo for Goblins!

Jim C. Hines

Michigan fantasy writer jimhines Jim C. Hines recently had his third Goblin book, Goblin War, published, so he's doing the publicity thing. And I've been behind in checking out his blog, so I was pleased to see the following in a post from last week:

5/8: Booksigning at Schuler Books, Alpine location in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Had to grab a calendar and figure out the Day of the Week (Thursday), but that's an old complaint. And I'm sure there will be updates as to time, etc. Great thing about Schuler Books is that their Chapbook Cafe has excellent food, so assuming I can get there in time, a little dinner, a little booksigning, a little spending of money in Schuler's -- sounds just about right. (grin)

Serial Presents

We recently gave the first book, Goblin Hero, to a nephew. Amazingly, digging around we found the Jig temporary tattoo and bookmark for Goblin Quest which came in an issue of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine quite a while ago. So I took that and printed off an interview I found with Jim and added it to the present. My nephews think it is SO cool that I actually KNOW some authors from ConFusion, WisCon, WindyCon, Clarion, etc. So I figure we'll get two more presents out of Jim before we have to threaten him to write more. (grin) And the Schuler's appearance means we can get 'em signed. Cool. No, it IS cool. I'm not particularly rabid about signed copies for myself, but I love to give them as presents.

Read on, good friends.

UPDATE: Speaking of ASIM, their website has a brand new interview with Jim C. Hines about Goblin War.
