Norwescon 39 is just over a week away, and on Saturday night, the 26th of March I’ll be doing a reading! (9:00 PM in Cascade 1, Come see me.) Hooray! In the past I’ve read the prologue from The Stars Were Right, I mean, it’s the beginning, right? It’s a good place as any to introduce people to the world of The Bell Forging Cycle. But I was thinking, Red Litten World has been out now for five months now, and while each book builds off of each other they have been written to be standalone novels, the books can be read in any order. So I don’t have to be worried about spoiling anything. That has tempted me to read the Red Litten World prologue instead.
Instead of hemming and hawing over the decision myself. I figured why not ask you, my community of amazing and loyal readers! Which book do you think I should read? Should it be the introduction with the anur spectacles dealer from The Stars Were Right, or should it be the prologue with the creepy evangelist from Red Litten World? Use the poll below and vote. Voting will continue for a week and end next Wednesday, the 23rd. Whatever book wins will be the book I read at Norwescon!
You can see my full Norwescon 39 schedule over here. Make sure you stop by my table on Writer’s Row and say hello. We can talk about Lovecraft, horror in general, sci-fi, fantasy, the world of the Territories, whatever! I’ll have all three books available for purchase (at the discounted convention price.) You can pick up some free swag and make sure to ask me about how you can get one of my badge ribbons. There is a lot of stuff going on and I can’t wait to hang out with everyone. So vote and I’ll see you at the convention!
