NEWS: Surprise! I’ll Be at San Diego Comic Con July 20-24!

My wife, Christie Yant, works for a small comics company called Kymera Press, and as part of her job for them, she’s going to be doing some comic con exhibiting for them. She (and I) did it for the first time at the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con in June. We thought SDCC was not in the cards, but Kymera was on the wait list for exhibitor space, and a spot opened up at the last minute, so … WE’RE GOING TO COMIC CON, Y’ALL.

I’ll be working the Kymera Press booth alongside Christie. We’ll have all issues of Kymera’s two titles (Gates of Midnight and Pet Noir), and we’ll also have the Lightspeed and Nightmare “Destroy” special issues, as well as books I edited available for sale. I’ll be there July 20 – July 24; Christie will be coming down Friday evening, as she was unavoidably detained by jury duty, so she’ll be there working the floor Saturday and Sunday. We’re in booth 2003, in the Independent Publishers Pavilion.

Hope to see some of you there!
