Awesome triple book signing at Forbidden Planet!

How about this for a book signing event?

From Forbidden Planet's website:

Thursday 20 May 18:00 - 19:00
London Megastore
179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR
Three huge talents; one signing event - FORBIDDEN PLANET are delighted to be hosting a triple signing with China MiƩville, Adam Nevill and Mark Charan Newton on Thursday 20th May at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8JR.
In China MiĆ©ville’s KRAKEN, a prize specimen has come to the Natural History Museum – a giant squid, whole and perfectly preserved. When it disappears, curator Billy Harrow finds himself in a city of warring cults and surreal magic – and the forthcoming end of the world.
APARTMENT 16 by Adam Neville is wonderfully written, deftly plotted tale of utter horror which will have you turning the lights on in the middle of the night. Follow and unravel the tale of Barringon House – and discover that the doorway to Apartment 16 is a gateway to something terrifying.
Two weeks in advance of publication date, CITY OF RUIN by Mark Charan Newton is the follow-on to the massively successful Nights of Villjamur, taking us back to the lands of the Red Sun. This time, we go to to Villiren, where Brynd and investigator Jeryd must fight to save a city that’s already in ruins.
Really hoping to make it down to London for this one...any of you game?

Bring it.

This sounds great, but I'm already likely to be in London on the 18th of May and then again for the Gemmell Awards the following month. I can't really justify an extra excursion inbetween, which is bloody annoying as I'd like to have gone to this.

Hopefully I'll be able to make this one :o)

I'm definitely planning on going to this. I only live just outside London anyway, and I'm from London originally, so I have family there I can crash with. Will be good to catch you there James if you make it :)

What a great event. I am a big fan of Mieville and I loved Newton's Nights of Villjamur. I'll look foward to checking out Adam Neville.

Adam - you'd better start saving those pennies then sir, as without you Graeme and I will only be the two bloggerteers, and that doesn't quite have the same ring, does it? Eat beans on toast for a month and you'll be fine. :)

Graeme - I hope so too, otherwise I'll be the one bloggerteer. :(

Jason - excellent stuff. I will definitely be there, so will be cool to meet you.

JamesY - indeed, check out my review of Adam's book Apartment 16 if you've not done so already - great stuff. Wonderful prose.
