Me and Aaron Crocco, interviewer for The Geekcast, at the Tor booth at NY Comic Con (Thank you Jay of Geekcast for taking this picture and letting me steal it for my blog…)
I had a fantastic time at New York Comic Con — it was much more crowded than even a couple of years ago, when I brought the guys out for some light saber training with the NYC Jedis. And, wow, the energy was amazing at Javits this year — tons of passion, creative cosplay, and amazing feats of creativity positively abounded. Everywhere! It was a feast for the eyes and imagination — even if you did get kinda crushed by crowds. Totally worth it.
I had a great time catching up with some of the guys of the very cool Geekcast — many thanks to the folks at Tor who let us use the booth’s table for the interview. Aaron interviewed me about LADY LAZARUS, and we talked about Hogan’s Heroes, characters that refuse to go away, and the perils of writing about WWII. Check it out:
I also got the chance to sign books and meet readers and reviewers. Thanks to everybody who came out for the signing — the books went so fast that I couldn’t get a picture in time! It’s always such a treat to meet readers.
Finally, I got to spend some time with book blogger Beth of Flying Off the Shelves. We talked Lyndsay Sands, scary vamps in general, esoteric mysticism and hot dogs :). I had a total blast.
