Scott Westerfeld is my hero. He's a master craftsman. And writes books you want to keep reading.
I've been a fan of his since I read So Yesterday in 2005. Then Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras made me love him even more.
In 2009, he switched gears with Leviathan. It was my first experience with steampunk. And I found it awesome.
Behemoth, the second volume in the Leviathan trilogy, arrives on October 5th. I've read the ARC and the story is even more exciting than Leviathan.
And, most awesome of all, I get to meet my hero on Wednesday, October 6th, when he is scheduled to appear at Chester County Book & Music Company at 7 pm (*coughcough*shameless plug for my employer*coughcough*).
If you live anywhere near the suburban Philadelphia area and you want to meet Scott Westerfeld and buy a copy of one of his books (and get it signed!), please join us.
