Going to Phoenix Comicon? Of course you are. It’s a rad con. And if that’s the case — or you happen to live in the greater Phoenix area — you had best brace yourself. Elevengeddon is coming back.
For the second year in a row, the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale is hosting a veritable bushel of fantastic science fiction and fantasy writers the night before Phoenix Comicon kicks off. And yes, that bushel includes me. Last year was so much fun, and this year promises to be even better.
The event kicks off on June 1 at 7 p.m. at the Poisoned Pen, 4014 N. Goldwater Blvd, Scottsdale, Ariz. Here’s the calendar listing. And as for the authors, well….
- Kevin Hearne (our fearless leader and organizer — thanks, Kevin!)
- Brandon Sanderson
- V.E. Schwab
- Pierce Brown
- Mary Robinette Kowal
- Scott Sigler
- Dan Wells
- Beth Cato
- Django Wexler
- Jason M. Hough
- Leanna Renee Hieber
- Sam Sykes
- Michael J. Sullivan
- Adam Christopher
- Michael J. Martinez (hey, that’s me!)
- Ryan Dalton
- Tom Leveen
I mean, good Lord. This is an awesome bunch. I know some of these fine people personally, and know others solely from their work. All are amazing.
Now, if you can’t get to Arizona — though, really, you should — never fear. Just call the Poisoned Pen ahead of time and they’ll have us sign books for you, then ship them right to your door. (Note: You still have to pay for ’em.)
That said, I really hope you can get there if you’re going to be in the area. I may very well have advance copies of MJ-12: Inception to give away to one or two lucky attendees. Plus, of course, I’ll be signing the Daedalus series books — including the mass-market paperback editions of The Daedalus Incident and The Enceladus Crisis.
Finally, my thanks to the incomparable Kevin Hearne for organizing this again. He’s a fantastic fellow, and you should purchase and read all his books.
