Author Vernor Vinge takes pride of place in December's signings at Mysterious Galaxy.

The San Diego-based SF&F bookshop mavens over at Mysterious Galaxy have made time from celebrating their 10th anniversary year to pass on details of their author signings for December 2003.

Authors will discuss their work and host a Q&A in addition to signing books. The events are free and open to the public, but some signings require tickets, so do drop them a line before you turn up.
