Kevin Hearne’s IRON DRUID CHRONICLES are going to be a very big contender for best selling paperback of the 2012, if 2011 was any indicator. We receive orders from all over the world for the entire series. What’s even better, he’s local! That means that every couple of weeks he drops in to sign the orders and write entertaining inscriptions for fans. If you’ve not read him we highly recommend you start with the first in the series. If you’ve not met him, it’s an equally entertaining experience. This event should be a blast, plus, you’ll be hanging out at an Irish Pub on Mill Avenue!
Atticus & Oberon’s Sausage Fest—the release party for TRICKED!
(From Kevin Hearne)
Ticketholders will be there from 3-6 on the patio, but I’m staying after that, and so is Patrick from The Poisoned Pen Bookstore! Please come on down and say hello to me, have a beer and some of the famous fish n’ chips, and get yourself a signed copy of TRICKED! You can even pre-order from The Poisoned Pen if you like (please do to make sure we have a copy for you!) and it will be signed and ready to go for you when you get there! I’d love to meet you and you’d love the pub. Rula Bula is Atticus’s favorite hangout for a reason!
Kevin Hearne is a native of Arizona and really appreciates whoever invented air-conditioning. He graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and now teaches high school English. When he’s not grading essays or writing novels, he tends to his basil plants and paints landscapes with his daughter. He has been known to obsess over fonts, frolic unreservedly with dogs, and stop whatever he’s doing in the rare event of rain to commune with the precipitation. He enjoys hiking, the guilty pleasure of comic books, and living with his wife and daughter in a wee, snug cottage.

“Hearne, a self-professed comic-book nerd, has turned his love of awesome dudes whacking mightily at evil villains into a superb urban fantasy debut. Staying alive for 2,000 years takes a great deal of cunning, and sexy super-druid Atticus O’Sullivan, currently holed up in the Arizona desert, has vexed a few VIPs along the way. High up on that list is Aenghus Óg, the Celtic god of love. It’s not just that Aenghus wants his sword back—though it is a very nice magical sword—but that Atticus didn’t exactly ask permission to take it. Atticus and his trusty sidekick, Irish wolfhound Oberon, make an eminently readable daring duo as they dodge Aenghus’s minions and thwart his schemes with plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.” —Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review
“Filled with snarky descriptions…comradely characters, thumping action, and a plot as stylized as a Renaissance Faire, this tale is outrageously fun.”
—Cleveland Plain Dealer
“A snappy narrative voice makes this series opener a savvy urban fantasy adventure that should appeal to fans of Celtic and other mythologies.”
