Michael Z. Williamson will appear at the 10th annual Operation Sci-Fi Con at the Sprangdahlem Air Force Base in Germany. The military sf writer will speak and sign his books, including the latest in his Freehold series military science fiction novel Angeleyes, on Saturday, November 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.. The event is open to the public, and service members and their families are welcome.
Michael Z. Williamson retired from the military after serving 25 years in the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force. He was deployed for Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Desert Fox.
Williamson is a state-ranked competitive shooter in combat rifle and combat pistol. He has consulted on military matters, weapons, and disaster preparedness for Discovery Channel and Outdoor Channel productions and is Editor-at-Large for Survivalblog, with 300,000 weekly readers. In addition, Williamson tests and reviews firearms and gear for manufacturers.
Williamson’s books set in his Freehold Universe include Freehold, The Weapon, Rogue, Better to Beg Forgiveness, Do Unto Others, When Diplomacy Fails . . . , and the upcoming Angeleyes. He is also the author of time travel novel A Long Time Until Now, as well as The Hero—the latter written in collaboration with New York Times best-selling author John Ringo.
Williamson was born in England, raised in Liverpool and Toronto, Canada, and now resides in Indianapolis with his two children.
Angeleyes, Williamson’s latest addition to the Freehold series, examines the climactic war between the libertarian stronghold of Grainne and the Earth, which is controlled by a dysfunctional, dangerous United Nations—all seen through the eyes of a societal misfit and spy.

I hope Mr. Williamson will feel safe in our country, since he won’t be able to bring any weapons with him, and that we will also venture beyond the US air base to see a bit of the country.
Nice to see that the event is open to the public, though. Used to be different, when the US base in my area was still active.
Can anyone explain this photo of Williamson, which adorns his Wikipedia entry? He looks like an Elizabethan assassin for hire.
Obviously, Michael is a big fan of Seinfeld.
