    Yay! West Chester!

    Thanks for the news, Chris! See you there! With bells on…

    …my shoes. 😉

    Could you please remind the people that plan these for you that you have fans in flyover states too? I really love your books; but, the 12 hour round trip drive to see you is going to be a bitch.

  • 3 jasonb // Jan 9, 2009 at 2:25 pm

    P.S. I’m not sure, but I think I’m only an hour or so from Monkey Butt… If you can get that one added.

    is there anything i have to do in advance besides mapquest it?

  • 5 epobirs // Jan 10, 2009 at 1:11 am

    Here I am, sitting in a hotel room in Las Vegas, having finished my CES work, when I come across this TV show called “10 Items or Less.” It seems to be a version of ‘The Office’ set in a supermarket.

    Tonight’s epsidoe revolved around the staff’s obsession with a game they invented, Turkey Bowling.

    Better yet, one of the cast members is named Christopher Liam Moore. Strange.

    Any more info on the Tattered Cover Denver date? Like what time and which one, since there’s now three TC’s in Colorado?

    Thanks.

    but….but….but….why are you teasing us Chicagoans!

  • 8 Picard // Jan 11, 2009 at 6:12 pm

    Seriously, Monkey Butt, Michigan is just around the corner from Paw Paw. (Boy, you should see the bar-scene-from-Star-Wars people who live there!) Which means Chicago isn’t that far away. But please stop teasing. Give us Chicago. The whole world’s watching. The whole world’s watching.

  • 9 joebrad // Jan 11, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    Louisiana! Come here! we have A book store! Some people even go there an’ everything!

  • 10 jasonb // Jan 12, 2009 at 8:32 am

    Monkey Butt is in Michigan? We’ve got a town called Monkey’s Eyebrow in Kentucky. I just assumed that Monkey Butt would be due south of it…

  • 11 Jennifer // Jan 12, 2009 at 9:14 am

    Well, having just finished my advance copy of “Fool”, I have but one thing to say…
    Fuckstockings! What am I to read now?!
    IT was great; I will not go and read King Lear now, as per your suggestion and I look forward to meeting you on the 17th at Powell’s (even though it is rival to my job at B & N!). Now for another thing to say…
    When’s your next book coming out? (Kidding! I’ll give you six months to kick one out!)

  • 12 Leendert // Jan 12, 2009 at 9:31 am

    How about seeing friendly canadians? We’re not all tuque wearing, hockey playing, beaver buddies. Just the good ones. Come up and be cold with us.

  • 13 Picard // Jan 12, 2009 at 11:32 am

    Naw, I was just kidding. Michigan doesn’t have a Monkey Butt, not even in the UP. We do have a Podunk, however. Probably be a while before Chris gets there, too. Canadians, eh? Canada’s great,eh?. It’s almost like a real country, eh?.

  • 14 Sugar Ray Dodge // Jan 13, 2009 at 4:34 am

    I’ll be at the DC one for sure. :)

  • 15 AngieBatgirl // Jan 13, 2009 at 10:19 pm

    Yay! I don’t have to go to NYC :) West Chester, here I come.

  • 16 Redroach // Jan 14, 2009 at 10:18 am

    Dude, you do Austin, but not Houston.
    Now I gotta drive three hours to see you.
    not fair

    TV

  • 17 Molly // Jan 14, 2009 at 10:40 am

    Coming to DC and on a Friday too! I couldn’t ask for anything more. See you there!

  • 18 Amanda W // Jan 15, 2009 at 1:06 am

    I still think you should add a Dallas 😀 Yup. That’s right. I’m complaining about a four hour drive. I’ll still come though!

  • 19 Adele // Jan 15, 2009 at 12:25 pm

    No UK?

  • 20 Stefan Jones // Jan 18, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    Cool, Powells!

    On 2/17!

    That’s the day when all the analog televisions implode, tearing a howling purple vortex in the fabric of space time.

    A book laden place like Powell’s is likely to be the safest place to be when that happens.

  • 21 Sky // Jan 22, 2009 at 1:47 pm

    yess! LA on the 14th! Woohoo for me! Humm Santa Monica sounds good too…either way, i’ll be there! :)

  • 22 nansea // Jan 24, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    No Tampa Bay? I’d even come ashore for it. Pulling anchor can be a bitch, but what the heck.

  • 23 Jared // Jan 24, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    Coming to DC, Finally! Feb. 27 already on calendar!

  • 24 Picard // Jan 26, 2009 at 6:07 am

    I hope thye Canadians know I was kidding about Canada being almost a real country. It’s a great country, with great
    people, with a great sense of humor, (who read Christopher Moore.) Hey, who besides Canadians, would have an economic system base on a currency called a Loony. I understand. I’m a frostback myself.

  • 25 cameron // Feb 2, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    Yea Portland!!!

    Can’t wait for your crystallized intelligence and can’t wait to buy the book.

    foolishly yours–

  • 26 Cindy B // Feb 9, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    Okay, so if you not too afraid to come to Detroit, and if you pass through the airport, please please please please please (how many was that..5..all right, one more) please come by the Borders stores in the terminal. Please!?! I’m working on selling, like, 100 ths week. (not counting the one I’m buying) :)

  • 27 Mark Covington // Feb 25, 2009 at 10:00 am

    Hey Chris,
    I’m going to catch you at the Washington DC signing. My wife and I are gonna drive up from Richmond, hit the spy museum, have a cheesesteak at the best cheesesteak place in the world in Bethesda and get you to sign Fool and my bible-like bound copy of Lamb. See you in the crime capital of the US- and that’s just Congress.

  • 28 genevrawebster // Nov 4, 2009 at 3:59 pm

    Dear chris sounds like you will be busy, hope to see a new book soon at a book store near moi,very quickly. What are the chances of a follow up to the last one that was about the chap who lost his wife and had and adventure underground. It was one of your “better” ones and I believe you received an award for it. It was funny, but also humorous over fool was interesting but in my humble observation not quite as amusing. yours faithfully Genevra Webster

  • 29 genevrawebster // Nov 4, 2009 at 4:09 pm

    chris,book before fool was better when are you doing another of similar quality come on book guy do not let the world/america down/faithfull fan

  • 30 angelitobueno // Feb 3, 2010 at 7:07 am

    The March dates are still on–right? I sure hope so, otherwise I’ll have to do a quick change of plans.
