Maryelizabeth and most of the staff of Mysterious Galaxy are off to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend. I won't be there, but plenty of other people will be--more than a hundred thousand of them, spread out over the beautiful UCLA campus. There'll be authors galore--from Bob Barker to Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury to Barton Gellman, Michael J. Fox, Hip Hop Harry, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlee Matlin, Gore Vidal, and many, many more. No, I don't know who Hip Hop Harry is, either. But if I was going, I could find out. If you're in SoCA, you'll want to be there.
