Walter Jon Williams Interview/Book Signing

DSC_0482

On Sunday afternoon, I headed downtown to hear author Walter Jon Williams talk about his career in writing and his newest book, Quillifer. A Song of Ice and Fire author George RR Martin led the discussion. The discussion covered everything from his childhood in Duluth, Minnesota to the annual writer’s workshop he sponsors in Taos, New Mexico.He got his start as a writer of historical fiction before branching into science fiction. Quillifer is recently published debut foray into fantasy. He gets praise from everyone from the late, great Roger Zelazny to Pulitzer winner Junot Diaz on the back cover, so I have high hopes. I picked up a copy and got it signed. We talked about the excellent bird watching down in his hometown, so the book is inscribed “To maybe a soon neighbor.”
