I’m in Austin, TX at Austin Books and Comics and I’m talking to Ernie Cline, who wrote a book I just read Ready Player One and it’s all awesome. I’m a super chatty. Lots of sales stories of my youth for no reason except me, obviously, wanting him to like me. But he’s gets in some good stories and that book is GREAT. Go read it. I hope you have as much fun as I obviously am. Enjoy.
