Meet the Prose

Novel Books (23330 Frederick Road, Clarksburg, MD 20871-9704) returns as our "Meet the Prose" book dealer with book wizard Patrick Darby, assisted by Lauretta Nagel (formerly of Constellation Books) and Russ Doyle (formerly of Borders Books), who have been our book providers at Shore Leave in previous years.

As usual, Novel Places will also be at Shore Leave on Saturday and Sunday; if you can't make it to the Meet the Pros on Friday night, you'll still have the chance to obtain the books. (It may, of course, be a bit harder to find all the authors.)

Book Premieres

We're thrilled to announce that this year's Meet the Pros event will include some exciting book premieres.

More will be announced as they are confirmed.
