I'm in New York City at the moment, being a tourist and visiting friends. Wandering around it's simply stunning how many little events are going on (such as a random author talk in a garden plaza in Midtown). Nothing less than intoxicating... and that was before I learned via Facebook that Jeff Vandermeer is holding an authors' event to promote his latest literary work of art with co-author S.J. Chambers, The Steampunk Bible... and it's more or less just down the road. Can't wait.
