    Any chance of a Hamilton appearance this go round?


  2. I’ll be in Hamilton for three days in September for this conference, but I won’t be there before then.

  3. You have a number of fans east of Qu├ębec, you know… :-)

  4. I didn’t mean that last comment to sound quite so snarky. I do recall that you filled a room at the Halifax Public Library in 2010. I, among others, would love to see you down here again.

  5. John F, great! Come see me when I’m guest of honour at Hal-Con in Halifax this coming November:

  6. Wait, WHAT?!? How did I miss that announcement?

    I, and my small pile of as-yet unsigned books, will be there.

  7. Looks like a great book and a great tour, Rob – go get ’em!

  8. I’m so excited to see a new book, and launch parties. I seem to miss every time you near Waterloo, but not this time. I’ve already added it to my calendar.
