This coming Saturday evening, all across Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia, people are going to have a stark choice to make. On the one hand, they can curl up at home, their newly purchased or arrived copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in hand, and speed read to find out what happens, who dies, etc. Kleenex at the ready.


Or, they can come out to the famed bookstore Politics and Prose at 6 pm to hear me talk about Storm World, take questions, and sign books afterwards. After a week and a half on the road, I'm taut, trained, disciplined. Ready to rock you like a hurricane.

Only one shall live... I think we all know who the winner in this contest is going to be.
