Ernest Cline, the creator of Fanboys, is on tour this week promoting his new book Ready Player One. Nothing unusual there.
Well, except that he's traveling in a thoroughly souped up DeLorean with "features from Doc Brown's Time Machine, KITT from Knight Rider, Buckaroo Banzai's Jet Car, and the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters."
Check it out:
Yes, I am insanely jealous.
No, I don't want to talk about it.
Cline will be driving about 2,000 miles in the DeLorean - John and I will be driving about 5,000 miles this October. So, our lousy generic rental car will at least be comfier, right?
(Before you ask: I haven't read his book yet, but I plan to. It has great reviews and looks like a lot of fun.)
Also, many thanks to Elizabeth A. for sending me the link and making me question my geekhood. -.- No, really. Thanks a LOT, Elizabeth.
As for my own tour, I believe we just nailed down the last tricky date in Houston, so final details are coming soon. (Hooray!) Stay tuned!
