But would you like to get them to sign your book on the off chance that they will be simultaneously killed in a very famous and unique way, thus rendering the signatures valuable?  Given the high likelihood of this happening, you’d be crazy not to!!! Come to Alamosa Books on June 23 where the bitter rivals that make up James S.A. Corey will be speaking, signing, and making cruel jokes about each other’s expanding […]
