via a huge geeking out fan who has great stories of meeting him repeatedly on his book reading tour and finding him extremely gracious:

After the discussion, I got in line for the signing. I’ve asked him to sign my french copy of ATASTA :) and the CD of White Lunar! :) I told him that I went to the signing/readings in London, NYC and Toronto, he said “oh, that’s very sweet” :D and we posed for a photo. Then I shook his hand, thanked him and left with my friend. We did not go very far… we waited until the end of the signing, and then we saw him leaving, so we walked over to him, I think I said “thank you for coming” or something like that, and he hugged and kissed me! :o :D then he walked over to my friend and hugged and kissed her too. :)
I can’t believe he was so nice to us! :)
