This week, my parent company Prometheus Books are exhibiting at the 2007 NYLA Annual Conference "Libraries: Learning for Life," currently being held this October 17 -20, 2007 in Buffalo, New York. Our director of publicity, Jill Maxick, sends along these pictures of the Prometheus Booth, including a close up on the Pyr display. On hand for the show is Richard Snyder, Marcia Rogers, Lynn Pasquale, and the aforementioned Jill Maxick (pictured below.)
Jill reports: "It is PB's 'first-ever' NYLA conference and though exhibit floor traffic was slower than we'd hoped for (we were told that Eastern NYS conference locations are busier due to a higher concentration of library systems in the eastern districts of the state,) Pyr was extremely well-received. Many comments were made about the female action-oriented protagonists of both the Quantum Gravity and Cassandra Kresnov series, which is funny because I think you've recently blogged about the similarities in their appeal, no? Librarians also favorably commented on the durability for circulation of our trade paper bindings versus mass-market only titles. "
That's Crossover: A Cassandra Kresnov Novelby Joel Shepherd being given out in the stack to Jill's right. Meanwhile, here is a picture of the Pyr display, where I can spy a copy of the just-out The Metatemporal Detectiveby Michael Moorcock. I'm still waiting on my own copy - but it looks good, doesn't it?
