January 7, 2013 (San Diego)--The San Diego Public Library's 47th Annual Local Authors Exhibit: The Library is going to display it in the exhibit, which will run the entire month of February 2013 in the lobby of the Central Library downtown.

January 11 (Friday, 7:00 pm) — James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell sign at the Mysterious Galaxy. The Order of the Sanguines series ushers in a new era of vampires in the first collaboration between James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell.


The Blood Gospel tells of an ancient cryptic order and the hunt for a miraculous and forbidden book— a book rumored to have been written by Christ’s own hand, in His own blood, a tome that is said to hold the secrets to Christ’s divinity and miracles, tied to a mysterious sect of the Catholic Church.

January 12 (Saturday, 2:00 pm) — Timothy Zahn sign at the Mysterious Galaxy. The team of Scoundrels – Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian – is back in action and on the run when they are tasked with stealing from a crime lord in Timothy Zahn’s new interstellar heist adventure, set in the classic “Han Shot First” era of George Lucas’s Star Wars universe. Tim’s Thrawn trilogy, written 20-some years ago, was the first introduction for many readers to the expanded universe. Members of the local 501st will attend in costume, and we anticipate a lively discussion of the plans to continue the movie franchise.
