Not much going on at The Planet this week… just THREE bodacious in-store events and one 50th anniversary of Doctor Who!
3PM Tuesday November 19th
Meet the Suicide Girls from the Blackheart Burlesque tour tomorrow afternoon! They’ll be signing copies of their new book HARD GIRLS, SOFT LIGHT and we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets for their show at The Gramercy Theatre.
6pm Wednesday November 20th
Writer/producer Vivek Tiwary will be signing copies of his new graphic novel- The Fifth Beatle – at Forbidden Planet NYC. Signed copies ARE available for mail order as of this posting, so jump on that. I’ve had the pleasure of reading the book and (straight up, no hyperbole) it’s SUPERB. It’s also one of the prettiest books you will ever buy, should you choose to do so.
6pm Friday November 22nd
Warren Ellis signing. If I was the kind of jerk who wrote crap like “Nuff said” I would write “Nuff said” regarding our Warren Ellis event. No offense intended to the beloved writers, artists, singers, magicians, freakshow performers, internationally famous rock bands- what have you- who rocked Forbidden Planet events in 2013, but THIS WILL BE OUR BIGGEST SIGNING OF THE YEAR.
Saturday November 23rd
Some silly SF program on BBC celebrates its 50th anniversary with a global simulcast of “The Day of the Doctor.” We’ve got plans for something special to mark the occasion, and will announce them later this week. Watch this space, join our mailing list, follow us on Twitter, like us, wash, rinse, repeat.
