Discussion & Book Signing
Join Gail Carriger for a lively discussion and reading from her new book, Competence!
All alone in Singapore, proper Miss Primrose Tunstell must steal helium to save her airship, in a scheme involving a lovesick werecat and a fake fish tail.When she uncovers rumors of a new kind of vampire, Prim and the Spotted Custard crew head to foreign climes only to be thwarted by pirates and strange atmospheric phenomena.
Forced into extreme subterfuge (and some rather ridiculous outfits) Prim must also answer three of lifes most challenging questions: Can the perfect book club give a man back his soul? Will her brother ever stop wearing his idiotic velvet fez? And can the amount of lard in Christmas pudding save an entire species?
Gail Carriger writes comedies of manners mixed with paranormal romance (and the sexy San Andreas Shifter series as G.L. Carriger). She has over a million books in print, is published in many languages, has over a dozen New York Times and USA Today bestsellers, and starred reviews in Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus, and Romantic Times.
