Soon, All Towns Will Be Cancertowns...

Now that Cancertown is officially out there, some of the places selling it have started asking about signings. Needless to say, that's been both exciting and disturbing for me. So far, we've got three dates established, and we're looking into several more. Here are the ones that are currently booked in.

1) 30th May, Forbidden Planet, Belfast
Stephen Downey's going to be appearing here between 2pm and 4pm. Insane little art machine that he is, he's offering a free, unique sketch to anyone who buys a copy. See the official Forbidden Planet announcement.

2) 6th June, Whatever Comics, Canterbury
Whatever Comics is unquestionably my all-time favourite comic shop, and its owners have been among my strongest supporters throughout my adventures in the comics business, so this one's a lot like coming home for me. I'll be there from 11am to 4pm with the ever-mighty Nic Wilkinson.

3) 27th June, Waterstones, Chelmsford (time not confirmed yet)
A real-life book shop signing, like the professionals do, but with me instead. Must remember not to swear.

More details and dates to follow, including signings in Dublin and Newport on the Isle of Wight.


  1. Hi Cy, 'if you build it, they will come', eh?

    Kudos to the Cancertown team, phenom success!

  2. Amazon still seem to be having a hard time keeping stock. I think they just need to order a container load and have done with it.

  3. If people can't get it from amazon send them to

    It's a function of amazon's ordering system, and stock rules and Cancertown exceeding all expections :)

    How big is Cancertown's win?

    EPIC WIN!!!!!

  4. Thanks CatFang, I'll let people know. I'd hate to see people missing out because Amazon don't have stock.

  5. You guys are doing a 5 HOUR signing!! You're crazy!

    Hope you have fun anyway :)
