Official Book Launch!
McNally Robinson in Saskatoon is hosting our official book launch on October 31. Arthur will be in attendance in full vampire regalia, so be on the lookout for a tall toothy rancher type who smells of human blood. Just kidding, Arthur brushes and flosses after every kill. There will be plenty of copies of Monsterology, but be sure to get there early before Arthur's wrist cramps up from all the autographing.
We've come out of the gate with some momentum, debuting at #5 on the new releases list as reported in Quill & Quire. Knock wood, fingers crossed, patting my cat's belly, etc.
Moving on, here's what people are saying:
"Monsters from folklore and literature are given star treatment by Governor General's Award winner Arthur Slade. Monsterology caters cheerfully to its readers' fascinations. Derek Mah's accomplished and creepy illustrations work well with Slade's text. The full-page pictures show with panache the attraction of a Medusa, Dracula, or Loki."
"Two thumbs up!"
"Slade lets fly with vernacular so hip that it might hurt were it not so appropriate for his intended audience."
"Slade combines humour with cool monster facts while Mah brings the ghouls gallery off the page with hauntingly original illustrations."
"A hoot. Arthur Slade pulls out all the creepy stops."
