Haterz launch - Forbidden Planet March 2015
5 years ago
Last night the great and the good, and the not so good (well it IS a book about a man who kills awful people on the internet) gathered in the basement of the Forbidden Planet mothership to celebrate the publication of the hilarious, gripping, terrifying and UTTERLY BRILLIANT Haterz by James Goss.
There were cats (ok a cat), there was laugher and what one onlooker described as "The Archers meets amateur dramatics" as James Goss and 5 hapless victims took to the stage to perform an extract from the book. But mostly there were books. Oh so many lovely books. And so many lovely people that we unfortunately sold out (but don't worry James will be popping back to sign the new stock when it arrives!)
Here's is just a small snapshot of the night's merriment (plus video footage of what we're sure must be the largest group reading ever performed during a FP signing).
My cat is sad because she is cynically being used to sell books.

The wonderful James Goss NOT LOOKING AT ALL FRIGHTENED.

One day in the future this picture will raise more questions than it answers to internet historians.
