The summer convention season is beginning to take shape and there are some fantastic writers attending several amazing conventions. And Phoenix Comicon is quickly becoming the convention to attend for the fantasy/sci-fi geek!
To start, Del Rey Books will be setting up a booth (Booth #640) for this year’s show. And they won’t be alone. Accompanying them will be Scott Lynch, bestselling author of The Lies of Locke Lamora, Red Seas Under Red Skies, and The Republic of Thieves. Naomi Novik is the author of His Majesty’s Dragon, Throne of Jade, Tongues of Serpents, and the forthcoming Uprooted. Pierce Brown is the bestselling debut author of Red Rising.
Along with Phoenix local writer Kevin Hearne, Del Rey author of The Iron Druid Chronicles, these writers alone make the convention worthwhile.
But that’s not all. Not by a long shot. Here are a few other names you might recognize:
- Patrick Rothfuss
- Jim Butcher
- Carrie Vaughn
- Charlaine Harris
- Christopher Golden
- Sam Sykes
- Ty Franck
- Daniel Abraham
- James S.A. Corey (Franck & Abraham)
- Myke Cole
- Brian McClellan
- Michael Stackpole
- Seanan McGuire
- Elizabeth Bear
- And dozens more!

In the next two months, I will update fantasy/sci-fi readers with more information about Phoenix Comicon. I went to Phoenix Comicon last year and absolutely loved it. It was one of the most well-organized conventions I have been to, with a wonderful author track and fantastic panels.
Unbound Worlds co-conspirator Matt Staggs and I will also be at San Diego Comic Con in July, bringing as much news to Unbound Worlds as humanly possible!
Gonna be a great show!
