I finally bought my plane ticket for Comic-Con International. I arrive in San Diego Friday afternoon and leave Sunday night, so it’s bound to be an action-packed trip. I only have two official duties at the show. From the programming material sent to me, they are:
Fantastic Fiction for All Ages: The Young Adult Market: Looking for ideas for summer reading for yourself or your preteens or teens? Something beyond J. K. Rowling, Eoin Colfer, and Lemony Snicket? Then this is the panel for you, as participants explore some of the best fantastic fiction out there, regardless of its target market. Panelists include Timothy Zahn (Star Wars: Survivor’s Quest), Jeff Mariotte (Witch Season: Summer), Emily Drake (Magickers, The Dragon Guard), Sherwood Smith (Wren to the Rescue), and Matt Forbeck (Secret of the Spiritkeeper). Moderator Maryelizabeth Hart of Mysterious Galaxy denies all rumors of special treatment for spouse and panelist Jeff Mariotte. Room 3. Sunday, 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM.
From there, the panelists head over to an autographing session in Room AA4, Sunday, 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM.
