Emerald City Comic Con has postponed the convention that was supposed to take place this upcoming weekend. This is due to COVID-19. It is best to help keep people of all ages and health-levels safe. You can read the convention’s press release about this matter here.
This means that Penguin Random House will not be visiting Seattle. And not going with them, Jim Butcher. Jim was going to sign 50 hardcover copies of the 20th Anniversary Edition of Storm Front and I was going to hold a raffle for who could buy a copy. Unfortunately, PRH and I decided to cancel this because the logistics became too difficult to manage to ensure the books were in great condition.
I was excited to do this. But it just isn’t feasible. Hope to have Butcher news in the future though for Peace Talks. Stay tuned!
I am attending Emerald City Comic Con this year along with many other authors.
One of those authors is Naomi Novik, one of my favorite people. She’s a wonderful person, one helluva writer, and since I’m her webmaster I get access to her signing pen!
I know many of you count Uprooted and Spinning Silver as two of your favorite fantasy novels. Naomi and I thought it would be a great idea to have the two titles on The Signed Page and she’ll sign/personalize while she is out visiting ECCC. Uprooted is only available as a trade paperback; Spinning Silver can be ordered as a hardcover or trade paperback. These editions are not first printing, FYI, but I know the two trade paperbacks will look great on the shelf and will make excellent reading copies too!
And if you haven’t read these, what is wrong with you?? These are two of my favorite books from the last decade! I highly recommend them!
And before anyone asks, yes, Naomi is writing a new book at the moment. She’s nearing the end… and that’s all I’ll say about this! More news from Naomi and Del Rey soon. It’s great news. So stay tuned!
Emerald City Comic Con is two weeks away! It’s where I’ll be having Katherine Arden and Gwenda Bond sign their respective books for those of you who ordered them!
But I’m going to ECCC for another reason. Grim Oak Press is launching my new anthology, Unfettered III, at the convention too! It is a power-house SF&F book of short stories and novellas, filled with many authors who have signed for The Signed Page in the past.
The great thing for all of you? I am bringing our new Unfettered II and Unfettered III hardcover ARCs with me to ECCC and having multiple contributors sign them! These ARCs are limited to 250 copies, are made with high quality materials, and having them multi-signed is a dream come true!
Here are the anthologies and the authors who I’ll be chasing down at the con:
Unbound – Terry Brooks, Kat Richardson, Jason Hough, Shawn Speakman, Todd Lockwood
Unfettered II– Terry Brooks, Rachel Caine, Sarah Beth Durst, Seanan McGuire, Peter Orullian, Shawn Speakman, Todd Lockwood
Unfettered III – Terry Brooks, Delilah S. Dawson, Jason Denzel, Megan Lindholm (Robin Hobb), Todd Lockwood, Seanan McGuire, Peter Orullian, Cat Rambo, Shawn Speakman, Patrick Swenson, Ramon Terrell, and interior artist Kaitlund Zupanic
Click the book title above to visit Grim Oak Press and pre-order your multi-signed copies! As for that green Unfettered III that you see in the photos? It’s an Emerald City Comic Con Exclusive Edition, only being sold at the con at the Worldbuilders booth (booth MM1 & MM2). If it doesn’t sell out, we will make the remaining copies available on Grim Oak Press.
Hope you are reading something great this weekend!
