The Pilgrimage Begins

Dear fans of OMAI:
As your Wizard-Author I am about to embark upon a hazardous and technically unexplainable journey into the environs of Southern California to confer, converse, and otherwise hobnob with my brother wizards in the hallowed halls, rarefied atmosphere, and tawdry booths of the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Wish me luck.

My fellow literary stratospherically-challenged Wizard-Author, the inimitable Daniel Chandler (nee Ciccarelli) has volunteered, voluntarily, to accompany me on this harrowing expedition into the land of the homeless, illegal and the Destroyer of All Whiteness. We will be traveling by wheeled conveyance starting this coming Monday, trundling our wares to the Great University, there to enter into friendly disputation and furtive selling for the two days it will take to render us hors d’combat.

On our return, corporal extensions of our beings cooperating, we will take a short detour into the Superstition Mountains of the Arizona Realm to carry heavy loads, eat mean food, sleep fitfully, commune with nature, and purge ourselves of the Evils of the Great Babylon.

If you are available, please come and see us in booth 910  at the LA Times Festival of Books, April 21 & 22, Alumni Park Area.

Say hello, BUY BOOKS, and comment on my kilt, (worn in honor of Alexander Johnstone of Kirkcudbrightshire, Galloway (b2025 – d2085) and father of a major character.)
