A Reader's Guide to San Diego Comic Con 2014

Monday, June 30, 2014
I am attending SDCC again this year -- and it is less than a month away! San Diego Comic Con is a great place to discover new authors and geek out after meeting favorites.

Typically SDCC publishes the program for sessions two weeks before the event, but the special guests have already been announced and many publishers will start releasing their schedule for signings soon. I am going to use this post as place to combine information as I get it and will update as needed.

Special Guest Authors:

Raymond Fiest
Caitlin Keirnan
Veronica Roth

Other Authors with Appearances Scheduled for SDCC: 

George RR Matrin
Patrick Rothfuss
Lev Grossman
Robin Hobb
Scott Westerfeld
Chuck Palahnuik
Tobias Buckell
Jonathan Moore

Publishers / Bookseller Info:

These booths will be the place on the giant convention floor to get information about upcoming releases and also, if you are lucky, score a few ARCs!

Random House / Del Rey - Booths 1514-1515
Random House Knopf Doubleday group press release: I'm looking forward to Anne Rice's signing on Saturday. I read almost everything in her Vampire chronicles series in high school (when I was probably waaaaay too young to be reading it!). It is exciting to see she'll be publishing something else in the series!

Del Rey / Lucas Books - Booth 2913ARC Giveaway for Star Wars: A New Dawn.

Tor Books - Booth 2707: Schedule released!

Penguin - Booth 1029: Giveaways for Cherie Priest's Maplecroft & Jonathan and Jesse Kellermans' Golem of Hollywood. Also, there will be an exclusive Comic Con Mad Libs giveaway!

Orbit - Booth 1116: Scheduled announced. 

Mysterious Galaxy - Booth 1119: Place to grab a hardcover of an author who is doing autographs or that you just discovered at the con. (They take a lot of my money each year.)

The blog SDCCblog has created a great list for the currently announced autograph times for authors, available here.
