I was thinking of going to New York Comic Con this year. I'm not really into comics though. I'm more into fantasy literature and Sci-fi/fantasy TV and movie type stuff. Has anyone been to this con before and if so would someone like me get much out of it? Thanks!
The Comic Cons do have a comic focus, but there should be plenty enough for a TV and movie fan. As for lit? I believe some publishers attend but it's often less for original works and more for tie-in pieces.
But you should get a good idea of it from their website.
I will likely visit NY Comic-Con for a day, at least.
Also, not specifically a convention but rather a fan meet up in NYC:
Tor.com Meet up August 2nd
On panels tomorrow at EDGE:Lit.
With Sarah Pinborough, Graham Joyce, Christopher Fowler, Adrian Tchaikovsky, MD Lachlan, Anne Lyle and others.
A little nervous, but I am looking forward to it!
Best of luck, Mark. Hope it goes well
Will report back, once its over...
So will I.
Promise I won't pull faces at you, Hobbit...
Which day, do you think? If I decide to go I'd probably try to go on that same day. If I don't get anything else out of it at least I might be able meet you face to face.
Not in a stalker way though, I promise!
Most likely Saturday, Spears though it is a few months away and outside of Anne Rice as Literary Guest of Honor, not sure what other pro-writers are attending.
Hmm Anne Rice huh? Not much of a draw for me. We'll see.
Armadillo Con here in Austin for the first time in years.
I'll be at Confluence (Pittsburgh, PA) this coming weekend (JUly 27-29) and then Dragon*Con Aug 31-Sept 2.
Yay. ArmadilloCon, only two days away (er...less now.)
Heading to GenCon in Indianapolis, August 16-19. Brandon Sanderson, Michael Stackpole, and other writers will be there, along with a couple dozen thousand or so tabletop and role-playing gamers.
London won the bid in Chicago! So get saving your pennies it's going to be a great Con!
Hugo Awards and so much more.
This is the video of the GOH and the venue.
Very tempted as well, it's in Brighton, by the sea, a brilliant location, the venue looks superb and the current list of attendees is rife with literary awesomness.
I shall personally hunt down Robert Silverberg in order to shake his hand and tell him how much I enjoy his work
