GIVE ME THE WORDS THAT TELL ME EVERYTHING
Help me decide what to read next week...
I've got a week until my reading at Powell's. November 20, 7:30 PM. They have it on their calendar and everything, so you know it's true. You can see the blurb on their Have You Seen the Horizon Lately? page.
I was in the store on Saturday and did a quick sweep to check if they had the book and saw nothing. Then, oddly enough, the next day Steve Leialoha came up to my table at the Comic Book Show and pointed at Horizon and said, "I just saw this at Powell's." I didn't think to check the front of the store where they have the racks for upcoming events. Duh, me.
In any case, it's time for me to start figuring out what it is I am going to read. My routine over the last couple of years is to read from the book I am promoting and preview whatever it is I am working on, an idea I stole from Greg Rucka. Given that there is currently nothing to preview, though, that choice is not an option this time.
Generally, I prepare three pieces, though I most likely read only two. I really should do a selection from Horizon. I have considered repeating the experiment from last year when I read a piece of the script from 12 Reasons Why I Love Her, but it seems to me Reason 2 was and is the best chapter for that, and I worry about repeating myself.
As it stands now, I am leaning toward performing (1) the short story "Chevelu" and then (2) an abridged version of the Halloween night section of Horizon (roughly pages 225-236, maybe even up to 240). Last time around I had considered the Julia/Julie section of the book, but it was too long.
I don't know. I'm at a loss. So, I leave it up to you guys. Does anyone have a suggestion? Anyone want to vote "yes" to the two pieces mentioned?
Please leave comments and give me your ideas. If you have a special request and you are going to be there next week, please indicate that, as that will carry weight.
