How to become famous without really trying. Or becoming famous.

“From the Depths” is on the street—well, hopefully, on the bookshelf—and you’re probably asking yourself how you can get your hands on a copy. Well, the obvious answer is to check, or pretty much any bookstore of good repute.

The less obvious, but more fun answer is to visit the many book-related events planned around Chicago and beyond. The bonus there is that you can meet the author and have him write something witty in your copy of the book. (suggestions for witty inscriptions welcome)

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s on the docket so far:

-Nov. 10: Book release party! Wine! Cheese! Enthusiastic punctuation!

-Nov. 16: Book reading and signing at Scents and Sensibility, 4654 N. Rockwell St. 6-8 p.m. More wine!

-Late November (maybe): Assorted book-signing action in the greater Kansas City area. Yes, wine.

-Dec. 19: Book reading and signing at the Book Cellar, 4736 N. Lincoln Ave. Time to be determined. IT’S A WINE SHOP.

And, as we say in journalism, “more stuff to come.” Actually, I’m pretty sure everyone says that. At some point.

Hope to see you and your hard-to-spell name soon!

Holy crap - thumbs up to the anonymous goobers at Publishers Weekly for such a brilliant review. Hey Mr. PW - "SHOVE IT!"...and then go write your own book, hehe.

Gerry, looking forward to reading your book. I've enjoyed your earlier short stories.
