Don't Forget: Eric Brown at FP!

Hey all,

Just in case you've totally forgotten, the enormously talented and prolific Eric Brown is signing at Forbidden Planet's London Megastore on Shaftesbury Avenue on:

Thursday 31st March
18.00 - 19.00


He'll be promoting his latest book, The Kings of Eternity, which he has spent much of the past ten years writing. Very much his Magnum Opus, Kings has been receiving glowing reviews, and justly so:

"I didn't want it to end, and even though I was desperate to read more and more in each sitting I rationed myself to the novel, not wanting to come to the final page."

"Kings of Eternity is a thoroughly entertaining tale that’s by turns humorous and serious, but always thought-provoking."

"Brown's latest has been on the drawing board for a decade, and it shows; in its imagery, its precision, its pace and its ultimate profundity, this narrative shines brightly because of the delicate care and attention Brown has lavished upon it."

Kings won't even be on the shelves for another two weeks, so this is a great opportunity to pick up an early copy, get it signed, and have a chat with Eric while you're there.

Be there.


While you're at it, check out some of the reviews of Brown's previous release, the grim, post-apocalyptic Guardians of the Phoenix:

"Brown is artful in his exploration of his characters’ moral dilemmas and contrasts beautifully the attitudes of the generation that can recall a time of plenty, before catastrophe came, with those of the younger generation who have grown up knowing nothing but exigency and privation."

"Guardians Of The Phoenix portrays a truly bleak future for humanity. Eric Brown doesn’t pull his punches... This is a real departure from Brown’s more usual subject matter but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It also made me think. Which is, perhaps, an even better testimony."


Finally, don't forget to bid on Eric's lot over at the Genre for Japan charity auction: signed, UK editions of Eric's three latest books, including Kings, Guardians and the new edition of his classic Engineman.


Peace out.
