NOS4A2 entered the New York Times hardcover list at #5 and that makes me happy as a boy can be. Thanks so much for reading, guys.
(For those who are wondering about the asterisk, that’s there to indicate sales of NOS4A2 are essentially the same as the sales of the book above it. It also means that I hit my homeruns in the steroid era, but fuck it, everyone was on the juice back then)
I’m now halfway through the US/UK tour for NOS4A2 (NOS4R2 in the British Isles). I’m on the West Coast this week, beginning with an event Tuesday night, at the Mysterious Galaxy bookstore, in San Diego, at 7 PM. I’m looking forward to it: Sandy Eggo is home to IDW Publishing, my Locke & Key crew, and it’ll be nice to see my pals there. There’ll be a full run of California/Oregon/Washington readings and then I’m on to England for a string of events beginning with a talk and signing at Foyle’s in London on Tuesday the 28th. All tour info is here.
I have run my gob for a variety of online journals and magazines. I won’t link to all of ‘em, but here’s a good one I did with Complex.
And here are a few more reviews on the novel, good ones all. I’m not entirely opposed to linking to a really wretched one – that could be entertaining - but for the most part I’ve been lucky this go-around. If you’re hesitant about picking up the book, maybe summin’ in one of these pieces will sway you.
Damn, I’ve had so much good news lately, it’s like Christmas came early this year!!! God bless us… every one!
This book is what I am saving to read on the tour bus, when I go a-signing in June…
