OR – Hand Drying in America Signing

bk9780307906908

Ben Katchor signs at Powell’s Books on Monday, April 8th at 7:30 pm!

From one of the most original and imaginative American cartoonists at work today comes a collection of graphic narratives on the subjects of urban planning, product design, and architecture — a surrealist handbook for the rebuilding of society in the 21st century. With cutting wit, Ben Katchor reveals a world similar to our own — lives are defined by possessions, consumerism is a kind of spirituality — but also slightly, fabulously askew. Frequently and brilliantly bizarre, and always mesmerizing, Hand-Drying in America: And Other Stories (Pantheon) ensures that you will never look at a building, a bar of soap, or an ATM the same way.

Nicole Georges signs at Powell’s Books on Tuesday, January 22nd at 7:30 PM!

In a charming graphic memoir that Alison Bechdel calls “riveting,” a psychic reading spurs Portland zinester Nicole Georges to uncover an old secret about her father and the family story she never knew. Calling Dr. Laura (Mariner), part coming-of-age and part coming-out story, tells of what happens to you when you are raised in a family of secrets, and what happens to your brain (and heart) when you learn the truth from an unlikely source.

Author Timothy Zahn signs at Mysterious Galaxy Books Saturday January 12, 2013 at 2:00pm!

About the Book
The Death Star has been destroyed. The Rebellion has had its first big victory. And Han Solo, newly conscripted to the Rebel cause, is on the run from the Empire and the bounty hunters eager to turn him in for the huge reward being offered by Jabba the Hutt. Now a mysterious stranger offers Han the resources to execute a daring robbery from a major crime lord. The mission is impossible, but the prize will make Han a free man. With no choice but to accept, Han Solo and his Wookiee partner, Chewbacca, set out to assemble a cast of rogues, knaves, and cons with the right combination of wits, skills, and derring-do to pull off an operation of this complexity and scale — the best scoundrels the galaxy has to offer. And then the game is on: a rip-roaring, intergalactic, Ocean’s Eleven-style heist adventure starring Han Solo, Chewie, and Lando Calrissian!

AZ – Scoundrels Signing

tz_Scoundrels

Hugo-award winner Timothy Zahn, best known for his New York Times bestselling Star Wars novels, visits Changing Hands Bookstore on Sunday January 13th from noon till 2:00 pm with Scoundrels, his new novel set in the Star Wars universe. Members of the 501st Legion: Dune Sea Garrison also attend in full Stormtrooper uniform!

Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory after having just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But there’s a bounty on his head—and if he can’t cough up the credits, he’ll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king’s ransom. Or maybe a gangster’s fortune? That’s what a mysterious stranger is offering in exchange for Han’s less-than-legal help with a riskier-than-usual caper. So Han assembles a gallery of rouges—including his indispensable sidekick Chewbacca and the cunning Lando Calrissian. But will their crime really pay, or will it cost them the ultimate price?
