Victor LaValle and Kelly Link at the Greenlight Bookstore

One of the things I love about living in New York City is that it often feels like the literary capital of the world.  There’s always a book event going on somewhere, and since I’ve been in the business a while now, odds are I’ve met the author involved somewhere along the way. In the case of Victor LaValle, who read from his new novel The Devil In Silver last night at the Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn, I’m proud to call him a personal friend, too. Here’s a picture of Victor wowing the crowd — and what a crowd it was! The place was packed! (Sorry about the fuzziness of the photos. My cellphone camera isn’t the best.)

Afterward, Victor and special guest star Kelly Link engaged in a very enjoyable discussion about horror, monsters, literature, and the imagination. I could have listened for another hour!

I went out for drinks with some folks afterward, and then came home to this, a present from my wife in celebration of my new book deal with St. Martin’s Press!

Best. Night. Ever.
