Puget Sound English Department

E.T., Phone Home!


The title of this post is, I know, a cheap shot. What was once known, with some disdain, as “Sci-Fi” is now the burgeoning realm of Genre Fiction, and boasts such illustrious authors as H.G. Wells, Neal Stephenson, Mark Twain, and Octavia Butler…and many, many more.

A member of that fine tradition, George Clayton Johnson, will be in the Puget Sound region this week, discussing his extensive career and his new book, Twilight Zones: Scripts and Stories.

He’ll be speaking at the Olympic Room at the Tacoma Public Library on Thursday night, February 4 at 7 p.m., with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. If you’re not fortunate enough to live in Tacoma, you can catch up with him in Seattle, on Saturday, February 6 at 1 p.m., in the Microsoft Auditorium at the Seattle Central Library. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.

There’s a link with library contact information here.
