The Terry Brooks Denver Comic Con Schedule

Terry is attending the 2018 Denver Comic Con June 15-17! It is the launch event for The Skaar Invasion, Book 2 in The Fall of Shannara. Despite the book publishing June 19th, the convention will have early copies for those of you in attendance.

Also, be sure to visit the Del Rey Books / Penguin Random House Book #509! They have all sorts of great authors signing at their booth as well as giving out free swag and selling books! Definitely worth your time to stop by and see them!

On a personal note, I will have Street Freaks chapbooks with me for those who visit Terry at his signings. Maybe an ARC or (3) for worthy souls. And Tattered Cover will have 20 — that’s right, only 20 — copies of Unfettered on hand. You can get the anthology signed at Denver Comic Con by Terry, Naomi Novik, Peter V. Brett, Jacqueline Carey, Carrie Vaughn, and yours truly!

Here is Terry’s schedule:

Friday, June 15

12:00PM-1:30PM
SIGNING: Tattered Covering Signing
Location: Tattered Cover Signing Location A

3:30PM-4:20PM
PANEL: Let’s Get Ready to Rumble: Combat in Science Fiction & Fantasy
DESCRIPTION: Action scenes in Sci-Fi are a staple to the genre. Panelists discuss examples of how and where this is done well, and why a good action sequence can create urgency and add impetus to the story. Crafting realistic fight sequences is a delicate balance; when is it over the top?
With Peter V Brett, Amalie Howard, David Pedreira, Charles Soule and Angus Watson
Location: Room 402/403

4:30PM-5:30PM
SIGNING
Location: Del Rey Booth

6:00PM-6:50PM
PANEL: Avoiding Cardboard Villains: How to Write Villains that Engage & Intrigue Readers
DESCRIPTION: Great protagonists are only as memorable as the antagonists they must defeat! Instead of making all murderers crazy psychopaths and all adversaries driven by revenge, let’s discuss easy, practical ways to build villains that are as complex and formidable as our heroes.
With Kristi Charish, Delilah Dawson, Christie Golden, Liv Hadden, Christina Henry and Aaron Mahnke
Location: Room 406/407

Saturday, June 16

12:00PM-12:50PM
PANEL: Dystopian Novels – Building the Apocalyptic Vision
DESCRIPTION: Some say the world will end in fire / Some say in ice.” Robert Frost’s poem leaves us wondering about the end of the world, a topic that has intrigued literary and artistic creators since the beginning of recorded history. Not all worlds have to end—or do they? Why are we fascinated by apocalyptic visions, and where do we go to find new ways to build dystopian worlds? Find out what these authors think.
With Charlie Jane Anders, Laurel McHargue, Kristen Simmons and KB Wagers
Location: Room 406/407

1:30PM-2:20PM
PANEL: Romance, Feminism, and Sex in Fiction
DESCRIPTION: Somehow, it still feels like women are constantly being judged or having to defend our need to write and/or read romance. Sexual identity and awareness aren’t owned by the males of the species. Why does it feel like such a slog for women to be free to love/enjoy/talk about/embrace sex?
With Alexa Donne, Amalie Howard, Tricia Levenseller, Cindi Madsen, Jessica Pennington, K Arsenault Rivera, Connie Willis
Location: Room 402/403

3:00PM-4:25PM
