I’ve been an absentee blogger for the last couple weeks, I know, but it’s been for a good cause. If all goes according to plan I’ll have an Exciting Announcement or two in a few weeks.
Today, I break radio silence because I want to fill you all in on my New York Comic Con schedule. Read on!
Myth and Magic in the City
Today (Friday Oct. 11), 2:45PM, Room 1A17
Speakers: Anna Jarzab, Anton Strout, F. Paul Wilson, Jeff Hirsch, Max Gladstone (that’s me!), Benedict Jacka, Tonya Hurley
What’s the deal: Alternate histories, parallel worlds, mages and saints shape modern day fantasy and new legends in the making. Join Max Gladstone (Two Serpents Rise), Anna Jarzab (Tandem), Jeff Hirsch (The Eleventh Plague), Anton Strout (Stonecast), Benedict Jacka (Chosen) and Tonya Hurley (Precious Blood) as they discuss the art of writing Urban Fantasy with F. Paul Wilson (Dark City), one of the originals of the genre.
(This’ll be interesting! Once again it looks like I’m on the borderline, with Three Parts Dead and Two Serpents Rise both set in fantasyland circa late-millennial capitalism rather than in, say, Kansas City with fantasy elements. Should make for a great discussion.)
Also today (Friday Oct. 11), 4PM, Autographing Table 21
Right after the UF panel, everyone runs over and signs books at Autographing Table 21!
TOMORROW (Saturday Oct. 12), 5PM, Tor Books, Booth #2223
SIGNING (AND FREE BOOKS!) With me, myself, and I.
Tor has copies of Three Parts Dead, and we should have a few early finished copies of Two Serpents Rise for giveaway. Come by, say hello, and let me scribble on your stuff!
Okay, I need to eat breakfast and then run off to this madhouse convention, but rock on, team internet, and I’ll see you soon.
