The Spanish Prisoner

From July 19th to the 23rd, I’ll be in Avilés, Spain, for the acclaimed Celsius 232 festival, where I’ll be talking about The Fireman and Strange Weather, saying hello to some amazing writers like Joe Abercrombie and M.R. Carey, and generally hanging out. The entire half week program can be found here.
