“Rivers of London” Author Ben Aaronovitch Signing

Ben Aaronovitch, author of the novel Rivers of London will be signing copies of the book at Forbidden Planet in January! Doctor Who fans may recognize Aaronovitch’s name – a native Londoner, he has written numerous Doctor Who scripts such as Rememberance of the Daleks and Battlefield and is currently working as lead writer and editor of British space opera, Blake 7.

If your wondering what the novel is all about it follows probationary constable Peter Grant, who’s only worries in life were how to avoid getting transferred to a dead-end unit and trying to sleep with fellow officer Leslie May. But one night is all it takes to change everything. Trying to take a witness statement from a dead person brings Peter to the attention of the last wizard in England, Inspector Nightingale. His becomes a wee bit complicated – vampires, warring gods and digging up graves is nothing compared to the evil spirit possessing ordinary folk, turning them into puppets to act out its violent deeds.

I personally love stories that really make you feel like you’re in the environment of the story; where you can actually walk the streets the characters walk…and scare yourself a little in the process! For those able to attend (information below), it should be a great treat meeting Mr. Aaronovitch!
