June 11: Scranton PA Comic Book Convention

Me (and Buffalo Avenue Books) will be a guest at the Scranton Comic Book Convention in (where else?) Scranton, PA this coming Sunday, June 12! This will be my first time attending, but it look to be a good old-fashioned one-day local show and I'm looking forward to it.

Also appearing are Archie artist Dan Parent, Marvel artist Dave Hoover, artist Rudy Nebres, DC writer C.J. Henderson, and about a dozen more writers and artists from all over.

I'll have a table from which I'll be talking, selling, and signing! Admission is $3.00, hours are 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., and the location is Johnson College, 3427 North Main Avenue, Scranton PA 18508 (exit 190 off of I-81). If you're in the neighborhood, I hope to see you there!

It's 1951 and the comic book industry is undergoing a recession that's sent half the writers and artists in New York to the streets scrambling for the work that remains. Among that number is writer Max Wiser, former pulp scribe and son of a legendary N.Y.P.D. homicide cop, on whose life Wiser based his bestselling pulp stories. When the industry's top writer dies in an accidental drunken tumble from a subway train that proves to have been murder, Max is plunged into a world of lies and conspiracy...discovering that there is often a fine line between real life and the pulp fiction around which he has built his life. Especially after the beautiful blonde mistress of the murdered man works her way into his life...and as the death toll mounts, Max Wiser learns that even in the cliche-ridden world of comics and the pulps, there's really no such thing as The Same Old Story...

In “Walk Upon the Waters,” the sorcerer Thalis sails on the enchanted ship Yar with only his memories of those he has lost for companionship as he heads into the final battle for the destiny of Atlantis. Then, in “Passed Lives,” an aging peasant awakens in the middle of her ordinary life to realize she is Khana, the latest reincarnation of Thalis’ warrior lover and must leave her family and home to go off to war and find her lost love...and learn which of the two hearts beating within her she must follow.

Santa Brings Random House Record E-Book Sales 

December 25 and 26 were the two biggest e-book sales days ever for Random House, the publisher reported today. Combined e-book sales across e-retailers on those two days rose more than 300% over last year's sales for the same two-day period, which had been Random's best two-day e-book sales period ever.

Among Random’s e-book bestsellers were the titles in Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy (with a combined 115,000 units sold in e-book format across e-retailers), John Grisham's The Confession, George Bush's Decision Points, Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken, and Markus Zusak's The Book Thief.Random also reported a “significant” sales increase for e-book versions of its children's picture books, including the 1961 classic Go, Dog, Go.
Random's president of sales, digital and operations, Madeline McIntosh, said, “We are delighted by the volume of consumers flocking to Random House books across all our e-retailers, and not just to our best-selling titles which are clearly as popular in e as they are in print. Consumers are also using their e-reading devices to discover titles deeper in our list, including David Nicholls's One Day, George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, and Max Brooks's World War Z."
