Today I dropped in briefly on the virtual book signing of Warren Ellis’s first novel Crooked Little Vein. It was an pretty crowded sim (25+ avatars) and laggy as all get out. I got there just as Warren was finishing his remarks and the queue for the "book signing" was starting. (Basically Warren’s avatar swaps the book object with you and replaces it with an identical version with his signature on the first page.)
I was next in line, after a frustrating few minutes trying to "wear" the book, when my SL client crashed. By the time I had logged back in, Ellis was gone. Urg. Anyway, here’s a few pics, if you’ve never seen Warren in his glorious digital self.
