Houston Book Signing

  • Avatar of Rodger Cooley

    Yeah, not a bad idea. Think i’ll go out and get a few more copies myself.

    The jerseys will be there for a while.

    Avatar of James Keeling

    But I’m being crushed under all the copies of Infected that I bought…  Well that and all the alcomohol I drank in H-Town…

    But someday!!!!

    I loved y’alls Kraken Jerseys at the Houston signing… Mumo, Wallerdad.  I want to get one now.  How do the sizes run, and what sizes do y’all have?  I was sitting right behind you in the Triumph shirt – probably about the same size as you, too.

    Thanks, and all hail our future dark overlord!

    The appearance was everything i hoped it would be and more. I met the dreaded Treed and his wonderful family, Gatorrock, and several other junkies from all over the state(Republic). The FDO was great, of course, answering all questions, signing books, and photos. Being in the presence of the FDO was truly a spiritual experience and for any junkie who has the opportunity to go to a signing, GO!!

    -it was the mere nearness of the FDO that kept you sober my friend, or the fact that your brain was still frozen and hadn’t defrosted enough for acohol to effect you.

    I was awesome taking the FDO back to his hotel!  Lots more questions and answers… then, afterwards, we stopped at another bar and had about 4 shots and a beer or two…  Mumo slept in the car on the way back….  it was above and beyond all expectations…  Treed is right… Pictures will be forthcoming.  Really sad part, I really don’t feel all that drunk!  Maybe this texas is really piss water…  Low alcohol content and all that…

    -sold out 60 books and could have sold at least a dozen more (I bought my book #4 there)
    Silger was GREAT. he read the first chapter of infected, WOW. Terrific to see him in action. Afterwards, The REAL fun began. I cannot remember all the questions, but all were good and well thought out (except the one about his womens’ voices, j/k, sigler had a good response to it, though) he was most gracious and had good words for everyone (but he seemed to gag when mumoo0 got his book signed) it was fun. (i almost told him to stand up, but i realized he was) then, most of us went to Two Row’s, a microbrewery. (Jam, you are gonna have one hell of a hangover) i got sigler to sign my other three books and got pictures of him with my kids and with me. Jam took TONS of pictures, he’s gonna post then on flicker and give the link here. Others are gonna do the same. if you had a chance to go to one of these things, but didn’t come, YOU MISSED OUT! (loser) those who couldn’t make it, well, i shouldbe nice, but too bad, so sad. My family had a blast. okok, enough ramble. SILGER, you TOTALLY ROCK.

    I am so incredibly jealous!!

    Photographic evidence of the FDO himself!!  Wait a minute…I didn’t think pure evil showed up in photos!Tongue out

    In all seriousness, looks like all y’all (plural for y’all) had a great time.  You’ll ahve to tell us how the pub crawl went too!

    Avatar of Beth Case

    Just in….

    372 people showed up and it was out of control!  They had to call the fire department and police to do crowd control.  Several people injured and arrested.  Scott, however, took a wrong turn and ended up in Katy.

    Ok, in all seriousness, there WAS a huge crowd — standing room only! (and as one of the people standing, I can verify this personally).  It was a great time, the book store ran out of books and some fans weren’t able to get a copy.  But Scott WAS there and he was fabulous.  Unfortunately, my camera battery died, so I don’t have pictures to post, but lots of people had cameras (both still and video) so I’m sure there will be evidence soon!

    We are on site…  small but cozy book store… about 20 chairs set up…  Only 5pm for a 6:30 signing and it’s already starting to fill up.  Mumo is at about a .072  but the night is yet young…  No FDO sightings yet…  I wanted to hold a contest to see who came the furthest, but Wallerdad just chuckled.  Mumo is in the can… wonder why…

    I’m green with envy that y’all (see that good use of tx slang!) are going to meet the FDO.  Please give the FDO a salute from me.  Dang, I’m jealous!!

    Fuck your thawed out ass.
    We currently are enjoying a thunderstorm – not just a thunderstorm ’cause that would be a blessing that would wash away the grungy nasty snow that clings to our lives and streets.
    Noooo, we’re having an ice/snow/sleet/hail/winter storm from the depths of hell thunderstorm.
    Enjoy the Dark Overlord’s divine presence tomorrow.  I’m not really sitting here hoping you all choke on your lovely Tejas lager.

    The Frozen Chosen of Siglerdom is decending to the depths of Hades (i.e. Houston) to hobnob with the southern junkies….  Just me, myself, and I…  Worth three because I’m just that damn impressive!
