We’re growing larger — and I’m not talking about our middles as a result of copious amounts of bagel-eating.
We’re pleased to tell you that San Antonian author Scott A. Cupp is joining our ranks of esteemed Irregulars. As is tradition around here, we asked Scott to talk about himself in the third person. This is what he came up with:
Scott A. Cupp started collecting books in 1967 when he moved to San Antonio with three paperbacks. He still has one of those initial three volumes. Along the way he has had thousands of titles and volumes, many of them signed. He has purged and bought again, more times than he can remember. He once was even a co-owner of a specialty bookstore, Adventures in Crime and Space, where he placed more money than was good for him and took home way too many books. He counts many writers as close personal friends (which means he cannot knowingly sell their books). He has also been a writer of mystery, fantasy, western, and other stuff, non-fiction, comic books, and other ephemera over the last 20 years. He co-edited Cross Plains Universe: Texans Celebrate Robert E. Howard with Joe R. Lansdale (his ownself) which earned a World Fantasy nomination for Best Original Anthology. He likes books. A lot. You can see some of his fiction and an old photo on his website www.scottacupp.com.
We’re happy to have him on board. Welcome, Scott! Now that you’re on the prestigious SF Signal team, it’s time to let you in on one of the worst-kept secrets of our humble corner of the web: New Guy buys everyone else bagels!
While Scott is trying to figure out exactly how he got tricked into buying us tasty hunks of boiled dough (some of them with blueberries…hint-hint…), read the first installment of his new book-related column Geeks (With Lots) of Book.
