Klatching on

April 28th, 2009

I mentioned earlier that I would be appearing on a panel at sci-fi London on this Sunday May 3rd at 11.00, discussing the new heroic fantasy along with Stephen Deas, Adrian Tchaikovsky and my dear personal friend and bitter rival Tom Lloyd. Don’t miss it. As a further irresistible inducement, I can now confirm that later in the day I will be doing a Coffee Klatch, as they say, or Kaffeeklatsch, or whatever. An informal little round table thing where a handful of people can pick my enormous brains about whatever subject should please them. I imagine a lot of corduroy, a spotlit affair in which faces taut with emotion occasionally edge from the inky darkness. A bit like a high-stakes televised poker game. An event where you will not only be able to hear and see me, but smell my characteristic odour. What could be finer?

It’s free, but numbers are limited, and tickets are on a first come first served basis. I urge you to apply here.

I would hate to be klatsching alone, after all, if that is even possible…

    If getting to London wasn’t a 4-hour round trip costing £ fricking 50, I would be alllll over this. I will have to content myself by staying at home stroking the Amazon page for Best Served Cold.

    I just started reading Tom Lloyds The Twilight Reign books (I’m always late to the party) and if you like Joe’s books would strongly recommend them.

  • Sirayn,
    You are no true fan.

    Jason H,
    I am pleased you would recommend the books of a close personal friend like Tom Lloyd, but naturally outraged that you would recommend the books of a bitter rival like Tom Lloyd.

  • Jason H says:

    I did say “If you like Joe’s book” but I shold of course put in the caveat that your’s are of course of a higher quality and Prose. Does that make you feel better? 😛

    Of course both of you pale into insignificance when put up against the writing style of Jeffrey Archer! (That is most definiately a joke…..)

    Germans say Kaffeeklatsch, but be aware, it is mostly connected with woman and hilarious chit-chat and is totally unmanly.

    I suggest to call the Kaffeeklatsch a meeting of friends or an informal meeting.

    Thinking of it…round table sounds good, too. You could be King Abercrombie, the others your faithful knights and nobles.

    Did you not hear? They moved the venue to Glasgow!

  • Anonymous says:

    I heard that too. Which pub in Glasgow’s merchant city area will you be visiting?

    Ack, I will be dwelling in wonderful Exmoor this weekend and thus definitely miss this fabulous opportunity to practice my squee and rabid fangirling. And I so need practice if I’m to win the championships! Damnation.

  • enjai says:

    Bugger, this is what happens when I don’t check the site regularly. I tried to get one last night anyhow but think i’ll be a reserve at best.
    Ah well, at least I got a ticket for the heroic fantasy panel on Sunday. I’ll have to be out of the house by 9:45; there better be some good insights 😉

  • Den says:

    I can confirm it was very manly (no women attended). As a result I have a great urge to acquire some Scott Lynch books… just to keep me ticking over until the next Joe ‘Fruits Of Steel’ Abercrombie book comes out, naturally.

  • enjai says:

    Joe must be turning in his grave. All we achieved at the klatch was to encourage “Little kid” to buy a rival’s books? And spoil some of LAOK for the fan who hadn’t finished the series.
    I guess that’s me barred from the next one. At least I was able to nab a free beer 😉
