Wordspace Reading

I’ll be in Dallas on the night of the 13th, doing a reading for Wordspace:

So wait a minute. Mr. Bennett, at the age of 27, has won awards from organizations that honor horror, science fiction, and mystery. So just what does he write?

In a recent long profile in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Amy Gentry wondered that as well and had this to say, “… I have read all of his books. They are inventive, strangely passionate tales populated with loners on the wrong side of the American dream who are trying to understand their place in the universe. Also, there are monsters, aliens, detectives, and gods. On March 13, Bennett will be in Dallas reading from his new novel, American Elsewhere,at  the Barnes and Noble in Lincoln Park on Northwest Hwy.

What is American Elsewhere about? Well, it’s like Amy Gentry says. Only I would add that it takes place in Wink, New Mexico, where the moon is pink, the lawns are perfect, and the smart people stay home after dark.

Details can be found here. I will sign anything you bring, even other signatures. (I will use very small writing.)
