There has been a call to get photos of people reading the new Needle magazine. At my recent signing at the LA Times festival of books I had the pleasure of sitting next to and chatting with Duane Swierczynski, a writer who I love and it turns out is a hell of a nice guy.
I tried not to hassle the other writers with taking pictures with me since everyone was busy and the place was crowded and really, I felt kind of awkward asking for a fanboy snapshot. BUT...when it came to getting a shot with the old Needle? Hell yes I embarrassed myself and asked Duane to pose. Here he is, um, enjoying it?
