We have a few open mics and three readings tonight.

Peter Lewis reads at Seattle Mystery Bookshop at noon. Dead in the Dregs is a debut novel about a wine critic who is found dead in a vat of wine. That kind of goes beyond "poetic justice" into the realm of "heavy-handed literalism."

Third Place Books hosts Krishna Devine and Jessica G. Hill. Why He's My Ex is a book about how men are real pigs. Right, ladies? Eh? (Oh, wait. Yeah we are. Sorry.)

Support The Stranger

And S. M. Stirling reads at University Book Store tonight. Stirling is a popular science fiction novelist. High King of Montival: A Novel of the Change is the fourth entry in the Emberverse series. I guarantee you that somebody out there is planning their whole day around this event.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
