What’s that, you say? It means “99 Exercises in Style at Black Week” and it refers to the fact that Ediciones Sins Entido‘s Spanish edition of my book will be back from the printer any day now and I will be officially debuting it at the Semana Negra in Gijón, Asturias, in the northwest corner of Spain. If you find yourself in Gijón the weekend of July 6, I will be doing a book launch as one of the many literary and arts event that happen amidst the food stalls, rock concerts and amusement park rides that characterize SN, which is one of the largest cultural events in Europe although no one seems to have heard of it who hasn’t been there.
Here’s a look at the cover (It’s almost time for a gallery of 99 Ways covers from around the world–I’m waiting for the South Korean and Belgian editions):
Jessica will be there with me and will also be launching a new book, the wonderful Astiberri‘s edition of Mirror, Window, which will be titled Escaparate (display window) in Spanish.

It looks great, Matt.
Need to go to a library selling it… brb.
Hey Matt, saw a copy of this at Norma Comics in Barcelona. Looks sharp!
Matt Madden says
Doesn’t it, though? These foreign editions just get better and better. Also, since it just came out last week I’m glad you found it in a store already!
