Salt Lake Comic Con 2017, Here I Come

Posted by Rampant Coyote on September 19, 2017

From Thursday through Saturday, I’ll be at Salt Lake Comic Con. My home base will be Booth 639. This is the Xchyler / Utah Authors table, and it’s going to be overflowing with books. I will have a small but not insubstantial contribution to the library, including paper copies of Mirages & Speculations, StoryHack 0, and Cirsova 4 and 5. Unfortunately, the latest edition of StoryHack isn’t out yet, and I was unable to get copies of Altered States 2, so I won’t have those. I may have a limited copies of my Xchyler anthologies available as well. I’ll be there to sign just about anything non-legally binding, as if I were a famous person.

As usual, it’ll be a blast. I’ll probably be at the booth about half the time, along with several other authors. Many but not all will have published stuff through Xchyler. Scott Tarbet will be there with his newest techno-thriller, Dragon Moon.  John Olsen will have preview copies of his brand new book, Crystal King.

Guests this time around include Val Kilmer, Zachary Levi (twice in one year!), Dick Van Dyke (!!!!!! Classic Awesomeness!), Elijah Wood, Christopher Lloyd, John & Joan Cusack, John Barrowman, Catherine Tate, Wil Wheaton, Michael Rooker, Jewel Statie, Tom Wilson, Eliza Dushku, Gates McFadden, Michael Biehn, and tons more. I don’t usually hit the celebrity panels all that often, but there are quite a few there that I’d love to see. I think Dick Van Dyke’s event will be maxed out to capacity. I saw Zachary Levi in the spring, but he’s enormously entertaining. On the author side, we’ll see Patrick Rothfuss,  Timothy Zahn, Jim Butcher, Michael A. Stackpole, and many others… including the outstanding usual Utah crowd like Larry Correia, David Farland, Brandon Sanderson, Brandon Mull, Dan Wells, Richard Paul Evans, Michaelbrent Collings, and Mary Robinette Kowal.

And of course, there will be tons of panels to attend on all kinds of geeky topics, and the gigantic exhibitor hall that I will *never* see all of during any particular Comic Con. But dang it, I’ll try… 🙂  And while the convention is WAY too huge, I have a lot of friends I hope to see there that I don’t get to see all that often *except* during events like this.

Anyway, come by and say hi! Hopefully I’ll catch you there and we’ll talk geeky stuff. 🙂
