C.J. Box, Shots Fired: Stories from Joe Pickett Country Tattered Cover Highlands Ranch 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 16

Prolific Wyoming detective-fiction writer C.J. Box, known for his Joe Pickett mysteries, comes to the Tattered Cover in Highlands Ranch to sign what must be his umpteenth installment in the series (the first was published in 2001), but with a twist: Shots Fired packages his tried-and-true tales in short-form. Only some of them feature nosy game warden Pickett, but all of them take place in Pickett's dark and woodsy milieu. Just the thing for folks who can't get enough of C.J. Box.

Ian Doescher, William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return Tattered Cover Highlands Ranch 7 p.m. Friday, July 18 Free

Boulder Book Store 5 p.m. Saturday, July 19 $5 voucher required for entry

There's something inherently Shakespearean about the Star Wars saga, a quality that author Ian Doescher has wisely mined with great and hilarious results, by couching it in perfect iambic pentameter. At the Tattered Cover's Friday-night Star Wars party with Doescher, members of the 501st Legion Mountain Garrison will surround the room in full stormtrooper gear, and guests are inited to join it the fun by wearing their own Star Wars and Shakespearean costumes; if you miss that spectacle, you can still catch the author Saturday in Boulder.
