Cetus Finalis BLASTOFF!!!

3 PM, Sunday, October 2nd!

Here! Sunday, October 2nd, 3 – 6 PM!

Image by Lucie Hall (Linoleuim block print)Hello reader, and welcome. It’s the big week! My book launch is THIS Sunday, October 2nd, at San Francisco’s own Finnegan’s Wake (937 Cole Street, 94117).

Let me be clear that “book launch” is nerdspeak for “party.” So, as Scar advised, “BE PREPARED.” There will be food, there will be beverages (the vast majority containing alcohol) and there will be books, not just mine, but Chili Bill’s also. It’s tremendous fun.

"Let's hear it for the boy...!"

chili_book_3-01-editedWhy launch Cetus Finalis at an Irish pub rather than a book store? Lots of reasons, I say. The Irish are lovers of language, with a long and distinguished tradition of story and literature. I mean, for goodness’ sake, consider the Joycean name of the venue. From red wine revision nights to martini soirees, writers and people of letters tend to be drinkers and have favorites (in both drinks and writers). Literature and spirits, folks!

Also, I just completed a shitload of work (4 years) on this book, and I need to blow off some steam with my friends and colleagues. Book stores usually frown upon blowing off steam. So rather than spend 90 minutes golf-clapping, curious to which bar we shall migrate for the high energy fun, let us start with the fun and keep it there! I will have a table in the beer garden before a must see mural. I will be selling and signing books. I may even perform a reading. But I will certainly be partying, and so shall you.

Let's Celebrate!

Please be advised: Finnegan’s Wake is an Irish pub, and children are not allowed. Find me at a table by the mural!

Reminder- Cetus Finalis: A Gray Whale Odyssey, book launch party this Sunday, October 2nd, 3-6 PM, at Finnegan’s Wake (937 Cole Street, San Francisco, CA 94117)
