Good news: I’m on THREE different panels at WFC in Los Angeles later this month!
Bad news: two of these panels are at 9:00 in the morning 😭
The Mainstreaming of Lovecraft’s Creations
31 Oct 2019, Thursday 17:00 – 17:55, Marquis 1-3 (Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel)
Cthulhu and his fellow Elder Gods have found a new life in stories, popular culture, animation, games, songs, and even toys long after HP Lovecraft’s death. The Mythos are often mashed up with other creations as in the collection Shadows over Baker Street and The Adventures of Tintin at the Mountains of Madness. What accounts for the enduring popularity of the Mythos?
Curtis C. Chen, Adam Simon (M), Darrell Schweitzer, Denise Dumars, John Shirley

1 Nov 2019, Friday 09:00 – 09:55, Marquis 4-6 (Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel)
Local bookstores, both chain and independent, are more important to authors than ever. How do we work with staff to coordinate signing and special events to connect with our fans and make new ones?

2 Nov 2019, Saturday 09:00 – 09:55, Marquis 4-6 (Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel)
You’ve written a book or a series of books. Now you or your agent gets a call from a producer. What happens next? What can you expect in this journey?

Other than that, you’ll probably find me at the bar. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
