Hey, Waterloo, Wake Up! :)


My new novel Wake is set in Waterloo, Ontario -- Canada's computing and high-tech capital -- and to celebrate that, I'm doing a reading and Q&A at The Waterloo Entertainment Centre on Thursday, May 21, at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is $10 (to defray facilities rental) or free if you buy a copy of Wake from Words Worth Books in Waterloo either in advance of the event or at the beginning of the event. It'll be a blast -- come on out! More info is here.

Pictured: the apartment building at 11 Austin Drive in Waterloo that Carolyn and I lived in back in the summer of 1980; ours was the basement unit to the right of the front door, behind the tree.

That little basement suite is probably worth $1000/month right now :-)

You're probably right, Jim, although, in fairness, it is a two-bedroom apartment. Rent in 1980 was $256 a month.
