13 Jul 2005

Hi All,

The release of The Brightonomicon is upon us.

Well its going to be fairly busy now for a while, and hopefully youíll

take advantage of all the stuff thatís going on, and come down to a

signing or an event.

Robert has also just released a new Audio CD of the Hollow Chocolate

Bunnies of the Apocalypse, and we have a link to it from our website.

Now from Amsel von Sprckelsen:

Beggars Experience Productions present: The Dance of the Voodoo Handbag,

A play, based on the book by Robert Rankin. 7.30 pm Wednesday 27th -

Sunday 31st July 2005

www.beggars-experience.co.uk although it may not be fully up and running

till later this evening/tomorrow morning.

Robert has confirmed that he is coming to the Sunday 31st show, and

knowing him he may even end up involved in it somehow - however tickets

are limited to only 50 per performance (It's a very small theatre - but

it does have a pub attached) so you'll have to get in quick.

There will be a Spoutlore/ZZ9 party called the Blue Suede Shoe Robert

Rankin party. Itís going to be on at Worldcon. Robert will also be

participating and doing readings at Worldcon, and Sproutlore will have a

dealers table. More details here: http://www.interaction.worldcon.org.uk/

Cheap memberships can be found on the interaction Live Journal

community, which is linked from above.

The Brightonomicon Bus tour is filling up,. But there are some spaces

left, please contact info@sproutlore.com info@sproutlore.com> if

you are interested, details were in the last mercury.

Now, the signing tour in full.

First we have the book launch of The Brightonomicon in Brighton.

Waterstones are limiting the amount of people who can attend the after

hours talk and signing to 100, so you need to cal them asap and book

your ticket. Tickets for the Waterstones signing are £3, but its

redeemable against a book purchase. Also, if the tickets sell out Ė do

not panic.There is an after signing party arranged in the Polar Bar pub.

Monday July 18th


Waterstones, 71-74 North Street

Brighton BN1 1ZA

Tel: 01273 206 017

We will then be moving to the Polar Bar Central, on Queens Rd, sometime

after nine, which is between Waterstones and the Railway Station, backs

onto the Lansdowne Lioness and is close to the railway station, for

those of you from London or further a field. We have reserved the

upstairs room, and tickets will be available at the signing so people

there know where to go, but you know, so just pop along to the Polar

Bar, if the bookshop sells out.


Most evening signings are now events, and tickets may be required, and

there may be a charge, sometimes this is redeemable, sometimes there is

wine, sometimes its just a charge. PLEASE contact the individual branch

NOW, to book a ticket and confirm arrangement, the last thing we want is

disappointed fans, so call and ask what the story is.
