Back to DragonCon!

So, here’s an FYI for you:

Yes, that’s right, I am the DragonCon literary guest of honor for 2021.

“But, Scalzi,” you say, “Weren’t you the DragonCon literary guest of honor in 2020?”

Indeed I was! It was online, and this year (cross fingers, knock on wood) there will be a substantial in-person component. This could change, I suppose, if another wave of COVID sweeps the nation, so for this reason among many other better reasons, please get your shots, folks, I want to go to Atlanta this September.

As to what I’ll be doing at DragonCon: The usual mix of panels, readings, and such. Maybe they’ll let me do a dance again! We’ll see. I will say that if/when I do a reading, it will include a bit from my upcoming novel The Kaiju Preservation Society. Since I don’t have any public appearances scheduled between now and DragonCon, it will be the world premiere reading from that particular novel.

More details as they come available. I’m looking forwarding to seeing folks! Live! In person! Really there! Etc!

  1. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black part machine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive more than a few miles at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    I took D*C off my list years ago, sadly. It just got too big for my claustrophobia. Plus my silly hubs is working Labor Day.

  2. I’m planning on attending DragonCon for the first time in a few years so this is great news. I’ll look forward to attending some of your programming!

    Any chance that you can get in on the music track and perform a concert with THE BEAST guitar?

  3. Congratulations!!! Life returns, adventures renewed! So happy for this turn of events! Have an amazing time!!!

  4. Congrats! I’ve lived in Atlanta 32 years, but somehow have never hit Dragon*Con. (I wanted to attend as an SFWA member, and so far just can’t seem to crack one of the qualifying markets.) But maybe I’ll make it this year.

  5. I stopped going some time back. It wasn’t a conscious decision, more of a tapering as it got bigger and more unwieldy. But I may have to dip my toe back in if you’re here in the ATL.
