RJS events in San Francisco and Canada

My 18th novel science-fiction novel, Wake, will be released in the United States on April 7, and in Canada on April 14.

In its starred review, denoting a book of exceptional merit, Publishers Weekly says, "The wildly thought-provoking first installment of Sawyer's WWW trilogy explores the origins and emergence of consciousness. The thematic diversity -- and profundity -- makes this one of Sawyer's strongest works to date."

I will be making appearances in San Francisco and across Canada promoting the book. All events are free and open to the public -- please come out and say hello, and please help spread the word!

You know, it's totally unfair that you are in SF, but on a day when I not only have class (at UC Santa Cruz), but also cannot go to SF because the BART that would get me home to Santa Cruz stops running at around 7:30 or even if I could come, I'd have to leave right in the middle. I'd cry, but I have to preserve my manly image.

Maybe I'll get to see you at a convention one day instead...
