John Scalzi recently completed his book tour for his futurist thriller Lock In. Each tour stop included a reading and Q&A with the always delightful author.
And because Scalzi realizes that not all of you live in the cities he visited, he’s provided footage from some of the stops so you can experience them in a non-corporeal environment! Given that the main character in Lock In experiences the world through a robot interface, this seems somehow more appropriate than actually meeting Scalzi in person…
Anyway, if you missed the tour, or just want to relive the magic, check out the videos from Scalzi’s readings below!
University Book Store in Seattle:
A Google Talk at the Mountainview Campus:
Prairie Lights in Iowa City, Iowa:
And finally, Amazing Stories posted about his appearance at Gibson’s Book Store in Concord, New Hampshire. Yay, corporeal obsolescence!
Can’t get enough Scalzi? Check out his Q&A session with Apple ibooks, his rousing game of “Two Truths and a Lie” with Google Play, and parts one and two of his epic Pop Quiz interview. If you still need more Lock In action, join the conversations about Scalzi’s plasuible future technology and its consequences for both personal security and gender identity. And of course you can check out the first five chapters from the novel, as well as a prequel short story, “Unlocked” here on Tor.com!
