How does listening to Warren Ellis speak under an avocado tree in Hollywood sound to you?
Transmetropolitan, Red, and Iron Man fans in the greater Los Angeles area have the chance to witness this come Sunday, January 26 from 6pm to 9pm. Tickets range between $20-$50, which includes some light drinks and snacks - not a bad deal at all! The British author is expected to "tell stories about the world we live in now (and where we’re going in the future)." Get tickets soon, as the event is fairly intimate, capping at around 40 people.
In addition to penning the aforementioned comics, Ellis has written for Vice, Wired UK, and Reuters.

Peter David and I worked together oh-so-briefly back in the early '90s, but I was already a fan of his comic book work, his many novels, and his work writing about comics. He's been one of the good guys since day one.
Peter had a stroke over the holidays, and while he's recovering and being evaluated, please keep him in your thoughts and wish him well.
I'm sure progress will be posted at his website - it's crashed a couple of times from all the traffic, so just keep trying.
Get well soon, Peter.
(And if you know anyone who might be at risk for a stroke, check for the possible warning signs.)
