The 2018 Glendale Paperback Book Show has been scheduled for March 18. Sadly, a number of authors who were regulars at the show have passed away, including Ray Bradbury, Forrest J Ackerman, George Clayton Johnson, Jerry Pournelle and Earl Hamner, to name only a few. However, fine writers such as William Nolan, Larry Niven and Gregory Benford have continued to attend, and its a great way to pick up both scarce and inexpensive books, as well as getting books signed. Here is a link to details about the 2018 show:
