My Emerald City Comicon Events

I’ll be at the Emerald City Comicon this weekend, hanging out, signing books and setting fire to all those who oppose me (well, maybe not so much that last one). If you will be at the convention, here are the things I will be doing:

Friday, March 28:

Writing Dialogue That Works
Room: WRITERS BLOCK (309-310)
Time: 11:00AM – 11:50AM

Writing great dialogue does not always come easily to writers. Join John Scalzi and local authors to learn how to know if your dialogue works and what to do if it doesn’t.

Saturday, March 29:

ECCC Writers Block presents John Scalzi
Room: 3AB
Time: 5:00PM – 5:50PM

Listen to John Scalzi talk about his life as author, father and all around raconteur! Best known for his Old Man’s War series, three novels of which have been nominated for the Hugo Award, John’s novel Redshirts was also recently optioned by FX to become a television series.

Also, apparently I have a table on the con floor: JJ-23, which is on TCC Level 3. Come find me. I will sign all your things. I will be there all weekend, when I’m not wandering about. My understanding is that the University Bookstore will be on hand selling books (look for Dwayne, he’ll be one of the three tallest humans at the con), so if you need to pick up copies for me to sign, there will be some on hand.

See you all in a few days!

  1. It amuses me that you’re chairing a panel on writing dialogue when I’m pretty sure you’ve said it’s the part of writing you find most difficult and had to work hardest to learn (I’m paraphrasing). Although maybe you are the right chair, rather than someone for whom it came easily.

    I think that second part’s a fine idea, Scalzi!

    Oh, dudebros…?

  3. So close by, but I can’t make it. We have a newborn to take care of. I hope you make it back to Seattle on your book tour.

  4. I’m pretty sure Dwayne will be the tallest human at ECCC. Or pretty much any con. Unless it’s a con of the world’s tallest humans. Then he might only be the third tallest.

    I wasn’t sure whether ECCC was one of the conventions I’m at this year that Peter Mayhew was going to be at too.

  6. It will be interesting to hear how their new author track goes this year. Those in the area should note that the convention is actually sold out in advance.
