CHOOSE YOUR OWN BOOK LAUNCH in Toronto on Monday!

I’m coming to Toronto this Monday night for the CHOOSE YOUR OWN BOOK LAUNCH: Two parties, side-by-side, for two different books! WHICH WILL WIN??

THE CONTENDERS:

To Be or Not To Be, a choose-your-path adaptation of Hamlet, written by Ryan North, William Shakespeare, and you! It’s over seven hundred pages and QUITE AMUSING, I’ve read it (and I also have a couple illustrations in it, along with tons of other great folks!). In the book, you can play as either Hamlet, Ophelia, or Hamlet’s dad, but if you play as Hamlet Sr., then you die on the first page and play the rest of the book as a ghost. It’s pretty great.

VS.

This Is How You Die, the brand-new sequel to Machine of Death that is just as good as the first book, if not better! The A.V. Club reviewed it and gave it an A. I helped write it, and I helped edit it, and so did Ryan. WE ARE PALS. But on Monday night we will be BITTER RIVALS.

AT THE EVENT

There will be Shakespearean rap battles! Dramatic readings! Death predictions by the score! Games and laughter! It will be a fun time; this is a guarantee from me personally. I hope you can come! (And if you already have one or both of these books, bring ‘em to be signed! If you don’t, come pick ‘em up there!!)

IT WILL BE HELD AT

The Beguiling (601 Markham Street in Toronto, in Mirvish Village, beside Honest Ed’s)
• on Monday, July 29th, 7pm-10pm

More info here! Facebook invite here!

After that: Gen Con Indy! PAX Prime in Seattle! But first: this thing. THIS THING INDEED.
