I for one am grateful that there's even one book tour appearance. Wherever Uncle Stevie decides to go is fine by me. Why should he have to travel more than he has to/wants to? If anyone should have to pack the ol' suitcase and make a road trip it's those of us who have been the recipients of hours upon hours of reading pleasure from his stories. Plus, the less time he's on the road means the more time he has to play in the word playground doing what he loves (and that we love that he does). Not every book tour has to be a 50-stops-in-50-days kind of circus. Heck, it's not like he won't sell any books if he doesn't.
