Reading & Book Signing
If Breaking Bad took place in a world of fantasy and magic, Ferrett Steinmetz's utterly original debut novel could be its pilot. In Steinmetz's imaginative new world, narcotics don't just get you high, they let you bend reality. When reality gets bent, it fights back with powerful forces of its own. And after a lifetime of altering the world with his own formulaic magic constructed of paperwork and legalese, a mild-mannered insurance adjuster must jump into the dark and dangerous underbelly of Flex dealing when he finds himself with no other option for saving his daughter after a devastating accident. Joining us for a reading and signing, Steinmetz will share his stunningly creative, emotionally engaging, and heart-pumping new adventure.
Ferrett Steinmetz is a graduate of both the Clarion Writers' Workshop and Viable Paradise, and has been nominated for the Nebula Award, for which he remains stoked. Ferrett has a moderately popular blog, The Watchtower of Destruction, wherein he talks about bad puns, relationships, politics, videogames, and more bad puns. He's written four computer books, including the still-popular-after-two-years Wicked Cool PHP. He lives in Cleveland with his wife, who he couldn't imagine living without.
