Aka Thomas BlackthorneAliette-bw_pic-webOn Friday 12th February at the superb Forbidden Planet Megastore in Shaftesbury Avenue, London, join John Meaney (aka Thomas Blackthorne) and Aliette de Bodard for a signing session. This is a rare opportunity to meet Aliette, who isn’t in the UK very often. She will be on hand to sign her already-acclaimed debut novel, Servant of the Underworld  and John will available to sign his latest book, Edge, written under his new alter-ego, Thomas Blackthorne.

The signing is from 6.00pm until 7.00pm, but you’ll have the opportunity to chat with the authors afterward – we’ll no doubt retire to a local hostelry for this part of the evening.

As well as the opportunity to meet Aliette and John, we have two rather splendid prizes to give away. There is no fee to enter (of course), and no purchase necessary, but you do need to be at the signing to pick up the contest card.

Answer a simple question to win either: 

1) a wonderful 23cm stone replica of an Aztec Calendar, to celebrate Aliette’s book, or

2) get yourself written into the sequel to Edge as a throwaway character, likely to die a violent death! How cool is that? Point is currently being written, and will be published this summer.

Two fantastic prizes from two fantastic authors!

If you can’t make it to the event, you can pre-order signed copies of the books from Forbidden Planet.

See you there!
