Updated Phoenix Comic Con schedule

Quick update to my schedule for Phoenix Comic Con next week.

Thursday, June 2nd

Exhibitor Hall Signing
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Place: Exhibitor hall signing area


Friday, June 3rd

Spotlight: Adam Christopher
Time: 1:30 – 2:30 PM
Place: North 128A

Now, I swear I had nothing to do with the official blurb for this spotlight:

Comics, super-heroes, and science fiction Adam Christopher does it all, come geek out with one of Tor’s most celebrated authors.

… but, okay, I’ll take it :p

I guess this is an hour of me talking about… me? I shall try to make that more interesting than it sounds, and there may quite possibly be one or two things to give away too.

Signing Lounge
Time: 3:00 – 4:00 PM
Place: North 127AB Author Signings.

Exhibitor Hall Signing
Time: 6:00 – 7:00 PM
Place: Exhibitor hall signing area


Saturday, June 4th

Crossing the Streams: Genre Splicing
Time: 10:30 – 11:30 AM
Place: North 128A
With: Aprilynne PikeMichael MartinezNeo Edmund and Yvonne Navarro.

My favourite topic! Should be good.

It’s too much to ask genres to stay neat and organized. As the number of genres grow, so too does the chance for cross-genres to be born. Our panelists discuss what happens stories refuse to stay in one genre and behave.

Beyond the Comics: Superheroes in Literature
Time: 12:00  – 1:00 PM
Place: North 128A
With: Lexie DunneRyan Dalton and Weston Ochse

My other favourite topic!

With superheroes being more popular than ever, superhero fiction is on the rise. Or panelists discuss the next tall building for this genre to leap.

Signing
Time: 3:00 – 4:00 PM
Place: North 127AB Author Signings.

Exhibitor Hall Signing
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Place: Exhibitor hall signing area


Sunday, June 5th

Shared Worlds
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Place: North 128A (I’m sensing a theme here)
With: Jody Lynn NyeNeo Edmund and Yvonne Navarro

From the panel description:

Some names carry the weight of a legacy with them.  Authors who work in shared worlds are tasked with not only coming up with original creations, but building on what’s come before.  Our panelists discuss establishing and helping legacy worlds.

Someone Else’s Sandbox
Time: 1:30 – 2:30 PM
Place: North 128B
With: Alan Dean FosterMichael Kogge and Yvonne Navarro

My chance to waffle on about how much fun I had with Elementary and The Shield, I think:

TV, Film, Comics, RPGs every property has a story to tell, these are the author who flesh out our favorite visual universes. Join these media-tie in craftspeople in a discussion about writing in someone else’s sandbox.

Signing Lounge
Time: 3:00 – 4:00 PM
