This week’s Assorted Nonsense… Larry McMurtry and the Great Novel.
Part Two of a speech I gave at the book launch of A Time and a Place, in which I read a bit of the novel.
The launch took place at the Merril Collection of Science Fiction in Toronto.

Publisher’s Weekly on A Time and a Place
Here’s a few words of thanks that I left out of the video in the interest of keeping it short and relatively palatable:
To my family: Lynda, Keira, Erin—Thanks for putting up with me going on about this book forever. It may not seem like it, but I do love you more than my book!
To Chris and company of Bakka books: thank you for being here today and selling my books.
My publisher, Lorina Stephens of Five Rivers Press… thank you for taking me on!
Jeff Minkevics for such a great cover!
My editor, Doctor Robert Runte, a legend in the Canadian SF community, and a great honour to work with.
And his assistant Kathryn Shalley, who believed in this book. Who said she loved it. Before it was edited!
And my first editor, Arleane Ralph. If not for you, I probably wouldn’t be standing here today
Finally, many thanks to the staff of the Merril Collection for allowing me to launch A Time and a Place in this fantastic venue. What an honour.
Thank you Sephora Hosein, my friend Annette Mocek, and the rest of the fabulous librarians here.
