Meet Tor and Tor.com Publishing Authors at Emerald City Comic Con!

Brandon Sanderson is one of the spotlight guests at Emerald City Comic Con 2018, his first time at the convention! But he is far from the only Tor author attending ECCC from March 1-4: While Sanderson will be on a panel about writing magical stories that make sense, R.A. Salvatore will be discussing the darker side of fantasy, and Seanan McGuire will be in attendance to discuss the happily-ever-after in SFF. Plus, Myke Cole will lead the charge to draft the best fantasy party to tackle every adventure, while Annalee Newitz will remind us that it’s OK to root for the bad guys sometimes. Click through for the complete schedule of panels and signings.

Various authors will be interviewed at the ECCC Livestream Stage, partnered with SYFY WIRE, which will be available live on the SYFY WIRE YouTube page. In addition to Sanderson’s spotlight and panel, Arcturus XR Studios will be in Booth 600 as well, with the Escape the Shattered Plains VR Experience, adapted from The Way of Kings! What’s more, anyone who purchases a Tor or Tor.com Publishing book in the University Bookstore Booth 6-1000 will receive a free ARC of Drew Williams’ The Stars Now Unclaimed or Sam Hawke’s City of Lies while supplies last.
