William Gibson Book Tour (Updated)2007Aug06

Touring with his new novel Spook Country. I think I can make it. Leah, want to go with me? We can make a night of it!

Friday, August 10, 7:00 PM
Vroman’s Bookstore
695 E Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91101

UPDATE: By the way, booktour.com, you were USELESS in bringing me this information. You have one event listed for Gibson, and are not updating it. What good is a customized RSS by author if the data is not current? You’ve got work to do before I rely on you for anything. One might think that Gibson in particular (having coined the word “Cyberspace” twenty-some years ago) would merit current data, but one would be  disappointed in that. Fans love this crap, why is there no easy way for me to suggest the book tour dates? Your teeny “Add events to BookTour” link wants me to be an author or publicist. Boo! That’s crap. Why not accept suggestions then have a vetting process? Or accept them and list them as “NOT CONFIRMED” as you build your database of bookstores and other venues where writers speak? Then it’s simple enough to edit that stuff. I was excited to read about your site on The Long Tail blog of Chris Anderson, but I’m disappointed by this.
