Forthcoming: a poem in THE BOOK OF DRAGONS next July

Posted by on Nov 21, 2019 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Forthcoming: a poem in THE BOOK OF DRAGONS next July

This has been in the works for ages, but I’m still gobsmacked: I’ll have a poem in the hardcover, fully illustrated anthology The Book of Dragons edited by Jonathan Strahan, due out on July 7, 2020. The table of contents is like a full list of the best living authors in genre fiction… and then there’s me, like this.

Every story and poem is illustrated by Rovina Cai, who just won the World Fantasy Award for best artist. The book will be a whopping 640 pages. I’m guessing this will be very much a treasury book to keep on a coffee table–beautiful to look and to read. Read the full announcement on the Barnes & Noble SFF Blog! Behold the authors involved!

phxcc_logo_2017_smIt’s Phoenix Comicon time! This is my home con, and it’s grown huge in recent years–some 200,000 people attended over four days last year! This time around, I will have panels and some signings on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

I will also be part of Poisoned Pen Bookstore’s Elevengeddon Mass Signing on Wednesday the 24th at the Hilton Resort in Scottsdale, 7pm. More info here.

My books will be for sale at the convention, but feel free to bring copies from home, too. I’ll also sign Kindle cases, autograph books, hellspawn, etc. ALSO… I WILL HAVE COOKIES. If you see me (and it’s not in the middle of a panel, because duh) please ask if I have any cookies left. I will be happy to feed you. Note that these cookies will be filled with gluten and other magic.

You’ll find my full current schedule here.
