DEATH at Comic Con

By Phil Plait | July 24, 2009 8:17 am

Just a heads-up for me droogs:

If you are attending Comic Con, I’ll be signing copies of my book Death from the Skies! at the Mysterious Galaxy booth (#1119) on Friday, July 24 (today!) from 6:00 to 6:50 p.m. I’ll note that they have advance copies of the new paperback edition of the book! I hadn’t even known the paperback version would be ready by now, so I’m very excited to see it! This is your first chance to get a look, and the only one for some time; the paperback won’t go to mass market for a few more months. This is a Comic Con special, so grab ’em while you can!

I won’t be carrying around copies of the book, so the only way you can get ’em AFAIK is there. If you happen to buy one and see me later, I’ll be happy to sign it whenever, of course — unless I’m talking to Anna Torv or Brea Grant.

Actually, if you do see me talking to them, then by all means come up and ask. Can’t hurt my cred.

    Yer a shameless flirt Phil; should rename your blog to Bad Astronomer.

    “DEATH at Comic Con” – Haha, that headline made me do a double take. Even the BA blog dabbles in yellow journalism!

    Ah, rats, Romeo beat me to it.

    I have a paperback of your first book I bought at the McDonald Observatory bookstore last year, but I haven’t picked up your new one yet.


  5. Wait…? Phil wrote TWO books?

  6. *shakes his fist at this post’s headline*

    Wow, next thing you know he’ll be Twittering and creating a Blog……oh, wait.


  8. Bought it and had it signed right there.

    Sorry I didn’t get there, although I wanted to. But the Star Wars Spectacular panel in room H started over 1/2 hour late at 5:45, and went until 7:00 – by which time the dealers’ room was closed. I’ll have to get it tomorrow, and hunt you down like the author you are!

  10. Dr. Plait signing my copy of his book Friday at Comicon.
