Please join us for a special event to celebrate the publication of the limited hardcover collectors' edition of THE WANDERER IN UNKNOWN REALMS. Illustrator Emily Hall will join me for conversation and signing, and we'll have a little something extra for people who come along or order books for the event. (We'll also send these gifts, while supplies last, to people who order the book via ABE.) The evening's conversation will range from Emily's approach to illustrating the books to a small preview of coming attractions—including THE CREEPS and possibly even the new Parker novel in progress.
