Adam Christopher at Forbidden Planet (again!)

From the press release,

Following his astounding debut, ADAM CHRISTOPHER will be reading from and signing an exclusive limited edition of his new novel SEVEN WONDERS (Angry Robot) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 6th September from 6 – 7pm.


Tony Prosdocimi lives in the bustling Metropolis of San Ventura – a city gripped in fear, a city under siege by the hooded supervillain, The Cowl. When Tony develops super-powers and acts to take down The Cowl, however, he finds that the local superhero team Seven Wonders aren’t as grateful as he assumed they’d be…

"This is traditional heroism with a decidedly wicked and iconoclastic twist. Inventive, engaging, bewitching, and delightful, a feast as much for fans of the tropes as for the innocents amongst us." - Greg Rucka, New York Times bestselling author of Alpha, The Punisher and Batman

“A blast of pure pleasure. This is Watchmen meets NYPD Blue, while The Incredibles stroll by; fast-moving action infused with Christopher’s infectious love of pulp fiction and the superhero genre.” - Philip Palmer, author of Version 43, Hell Ship and Artemis

I have a copy of 'Seven Wonders' waiting to be read although I still have a copy of 'Empire State' waiting to be read as well. I guess I just haven't been in the mood for superhero fiction just recently (which is probably why I couldn't get into 'Turbulence' the other day). Will definitely give it a go though, have any other bloggers read 'Seven Wonders' yet?
 
As far as the signing goes, I really want to go but Thursday evenings aren't good these days. We'll see what happens there...

Empire State is bloody brilliant escapist fun. Have Seven Wonders on my wishlist (some reason AmazonUK wont let you pre-order Kindle books but AmazonUS will?) and cant wait to read it.
