The speech, which LB assistant director of publicity Marlena Bittner called Wallace's "only philosophical public address," was paraphrased and quoted in various Web sites and blogs after the author died. The edition of the speech from LB will be slightly under 150 pages and feature illustrations throughout; the imprint is going to press for an announced 40,000 copies.
And really, how can you resist (if you're within driving distance) seeing ai master like Blaylock at his best. The man won the Philip k Dick award and the World Fantasy award. Those are nothing to sneeze at. Especially the Dick award. How many of us in our lives can say we've won a Dick award? I've read many books that've won that award, and they all are amazing.
And like I was saying yesterday: we all need to buy more books.
So this Saturday head on over to the Borders at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA at 2PM and check out James P. Blaylock reading from his new novel "Knights of the Cornerstone."
