My friend Petter—novelist, screenwriter, science fiction fan and all-around good guy—was passing through the Outland book store at the Oslo Central train station yesterday, where he snapped the following photo.
That’s right… that’s my book in Oslo, Norway. Oslo. Freakin’. Norway. (The American version of the book, incidentally.)
And my friend Heather sent this photo recently, from the library in Schaumberg, IL:
I like to think of this as the Pimp My Novel photo. As somebody who grew up reading his way through the science fiction section of his local library, this thrills me. It has a dust wrapper! And stickers on the spine! It’s been Dewey Decimalized! That’s my book in a library. Where people can, you know, check it out.
Okay, so I realize these photos probably aren’t all that exciting to anybody except me. But hey! They’re plenty exciting from where I’m sitting…
A grateful tip of my cranial electrodes to Petter Myhr Næss and Heather Marshall for the photographs.
