Huh.

From Warren Ellis's Bad Signal e-mails;


If you happen to stay in the Drake
Hotel in Toronto during the month
of September, you will be presented
with a copy of CROOKED LITTLE
VEIN. All month. Anyone who checks
in. Whether you want it or not.
And, when you retire to your room,
you will find on your phone there
a recorded message. From me.
Talking about CROOKED LITTLE
VEIN.

How bizarre is that?

Of all the promotional stunts I've
been involved with, this one is by
far the oddest.



I was planning to buy the book anyway, but the recorded message almost tempts me to want to book a room there for a night. Almost.

Wow, how odd. Normally, I avoid The Drake like the plague. But, still, how tempting...

Staying at a hotel is pretty fun for a night!! What's so off putting about this one?

Well, it's been renovated and made all hip and trendy, and therefore prolly expensive for a city I already have a bed in. :)
