Anyway, the reason for this post: Rucka's reading at Powell's Cedar Hills tonight; he's got a new prose novel, Alpha. Stupid work commitments have kept me from having a chance to read it yet, but it's next up in my stack. I couldn't help but sneak a look at the first sentence, however, which was enough to convince me it will be excellent:
Mario Vesques was sure he was going to make it, right up until he saw the knife in the dog's hand.
SOLD. Rucka recently read at a comic book reading series that Alison and I put on, Comics Underground, and he was great; I have to imagine tonight's reading will be similarly fun and smart and cool. So you should go.
