The South Carolina Book Festival
This weekend, New Weird author Jay Lake and New Weird editors Ann and Jeff VanderMeer will be appearing at the 2008 South Carolina Book Festival. The festival will be held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in Columbia, South Carolina on February 22–24, 2008. If you happen to be in the area, go mingle with over a hundred exhibitors, award-winning authors and editors, and, I'm told, hundreds of sexy librarians. With those odds, your next close "friend" might even be there. Could be worth the plane ticket and hotel room.
