FL – The Office Star Signs

B.J. Novak (The Office) signs at Books & Books in Coral Gables, FL on Saturday February 22nd at 7:30 pm!bjn

Press Release:

B.J. Novak’s One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories is an endlessly entertaining, surprisingly sensitive, and startlingly original debut that signals the arrival of a brilliant new voice in American fiction.

A boy wins a $100,000 prize in a box of Frosted Flakes—only to discover how claiming the winnings might unravel his family. A woman sets out to seduce motivational speaker Tony Robbins—turning for help to the famed motivator himself. A new arrival in Heaven, overwhelmed with options, procrastinates over a long-ago promise to visit his grandmother. We also meet Sophia, the first artificially intelligent being capable of love, who falls for a man who might not be ready for it himself; a vengeance-minded hare, obsessed with scoring a rematch against the tortoise who ruined his life; and post-college friends who try to figure out how to host an intervention in the era of Facebook. Along the way, we learn why wearing a red T-shirt every day is the key to finding love, how February got its name, and why the stock market is sometimes just . . . down.

Finding inspiration in questions from the nature of perfection to the icing on carrot cake, One More Thing has at its heart the most human of phenomena: love, fear, hope, ambition, and the inner stirring for the one elusive element that might just make a person complete. Across a dazzling range of subjects, themes, tones, and narrative voices, the many pieces in this collection are like nothing else, but they have one thing in common: they share the playful humor, deep heart, sharp eye, inquisitive mind, and altogether electrifying spirit of a writer with a fierce devotion to the entertainment of the reader.

Convention Scene Headed to DeLand Comic and Collectibles Show for January 2014 Show

January 10, 2014 by  
Filed under Collectibles, Comic Books, Convention News, Florida

Hi, folks.

Brian here.

I’ll make my first trip behind the dealer’s table this year at the DeLand Comic and Collectibles Show on Sunday, January 12. Taking place from 10 to 5 at the Volusia County Fairgrounds in DeLand, Florida, this show will feature great creators like Alex Saviuk, Jose Marzan Jr., Tommy Castillo, and more.

I’ll be dipping further into my personal collection and bringing out books that have been stored away many years. I really want to move some books. Here are some of the trade paperbacks and hardcovers that I will have for just $5 each (those Buffy Omnibus books have never even been opened!):

DeLand Show Books

 

And you won’t even believe the things you will find in my $.50 boxes…books ranging from the Silver Age to this past year. If it’s worth $5 or less, it’s going in the $.50 bins!

So come on out and look for some bargains. For more info, visit: http://cfcollectibles.com/?page_id=27
