John Scalzi - 'The Collapsing Empire' (Signing line ticket event)

One of today’s sci-fi masters returns (possible with his ukulele). The Flow allowed humanity to spread far beyond Earth, with its outposts in a tenuous alliance. Now the Flow is shifting, threatening to cut human worlds off from contact – and interstellar travel – forever.  It's left to a small group of individuals, including the Empress of the Interdependency, to ascertain what might be salvaged. Discover if anything can be when the award-winning  John Scalzi returns on Wednesday, March 22, at 7 pm with The Collapsing Empire

"If anyone stands at the core of the American science fiction tradition at the moment, it is Scalzi." - The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, Third Edition

If you've not heard John before, he is a very FUNNY guy.
