Walter Jon Williams Talks and Sign Books at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe

New Mexico author & Bubonicon friend Walter Jon Williams will be in Santa Fe on January 14 to talk about and sign his latest novel, Quillifer.  The event is hosted by George RR Martin!

About the Book: “An adventurous epic fantasy about a man who is forced to leave his comfortable life and find his fortune among goddesses, pirates, war, and dragons. Rogue. Joker. Lover. Reluctant soldier. Quillifer is a young man, serially in love and studying law, when a family tragedy throws him into the world to seek his fortune. A charmer rather than a fighter, he soon finds himself embroiled with a bandit gang, caught up in vicious court intrigues, and the plaything of an angry, beautiful, and very jealous goddess. While he struggles to establish himself in the capital, the country finds itself pitched into a civil war, and Quillifer, a unwilling soldier at best, finds himself caught up in the action, and able to tip the scales of fortune.”

Williams is the author of 30 volumes of fiction, in addition to works in film, television, comics, and the gaming field. Williams has appeared on the bestseller lists of The Times and The New York Times. He is a world traveler, scuba diver, and a black belt in Kenpo Karate. He has twice been awarded the Nebula Award.

The event starts at 3:00 pm Sunday, January 14.  Admission cost is $28.00, which includes a hardcover of Quillifer; $18.00 with a paperback; or $10.00 with no book purchase.

The Jean Cocteau Cinema is located at 418 Montezuma Avenue, north end of the Rail Yard District, in Santa Fe. For more info: 505-466-5528 or
