My schedule for the Frankfurt Book Fair

BluescreenI’m going to the Frankfurt Book Fair! I’m very excited about this, because as big as Frankfurt is (the biggest book fair in the world), I’ve never been before. I’ve done Leipzig several times, and that’s already big enough to make BEA look adorable in comparison, and everyone says Frankfurt is several times bigger, so: awesome. Let’s do this.

I have a handful of events, and of course I’ll be talking about the John Cleaver books and the movie, and about the Partials books as well–Germany just got a really cool omnibus edition of those–but the big story will be the grand debut of Bluescreen. My favorite new cyberpunk series is finally coming to Germany, and I couldn’t be happier.

I have a fairly full schedule for the fair, though most of it is private interviews and meetings and such. If you want to see me and say hi and get book signed, this is where you can find me:

Saturday, October 22

12:00-14:00 – Meet-up With Bloggers
Me and Nina Mackay, hosted by Christian Handel

I suspect this is probably an event you need to sign up for, but I don’t actually know. If you’re a blogger and you want to be there, check the festival’s website, or talk to Piper, my publisher.

16:00-17:00 – Piper Fantasy and Science Fiction, at the “Stage
Me, Andreas Brandhorst, and Christoph Hardebusch, hosted by Christian Handel

Andreas and Christoph will read a bit, and I’ll answer questions about Bluescreen.

17:00-17:30 – Signing, at a tent near the Open Stage
Me, Andreas Brandhorst, and Christoph Hardebusch

I will sign every book you bring.

Sunday, October 23

11:00-11:45 – Signing at the Piper Booth

I’ll sign books, babies, etc.

12:00-13:00 – Reading at the Azubistro (the Mediacampus booth)
I will read a small section of Bluescreen in English, and actress Paula Hans will read some in German, and I will talk some more with Christian Handel and answer questions. Afterward we’ll have another book signing, though I don’t know how long it will go.

So that’s the schedule! If you’re at the book fair, please come say hello.

    Hi Dan,

    just wanted to say Hi and big kudos for the most entertaining, fun and insightful ressource on writing – The Writing Excuses Podcast. Thanks to you and your friends for doing this.

    Also, driven by the infamous German angst, just wanted to pitch some unwanted advise on Frankfurt, in case you didn´t knwo: don´t stick around the main station area for too long – biggest crime and drug scene there is in the whole of Germany. You see, I really like the podcast to go on.

    Apart from that enjoy the trip.

    Cheers / Ingo
