TX – Ready Player One Signing

Ernie Cline signs on Wednesday, August 24 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm!

Press Release:

Austin-based author Ernie Cline has expressed his love of pop culture as a spoken-word artist and screenwriter for the 2009 film Fanboys.  Now we’re thrilled to have him join us for the release of READY PLAYER ONE, his first novel!

Genre-busting, ambitious, and irresistibly charming, READY PLAYER ONE is a jaw-droppingly cinematic debut that features a breathtaking, meticulously imagined world that’s simultaneously futuristic and charmingly retro – a universe where light-speed-traveling DeLoreans battle it out with X-Wing fighters and entire planets are inspired by classic video arcades – combined with a plot that incorporates pop-culture esoterica such as Cap’n Crunch commercials, John Hughes movies, and giant Japanese robots.

Brandon says: “Ready Player One features a cameo from almost everything I’ve ever loved about pop culture, cleverly plugged into a story about the ultimate treasure hunt.  It’s my new favorite novel!”
