5:00pm - 6:00 pm Tor Books will be giving away complimentary copies of INSIDE STRAIGHT at their booth, and I'll be on hand to sign them, along with Melinda Snodgrass, Daniel Abraham, Carrie Vaughn, and other members of the Wild Cards crew. We'll also be glad to deface FORT FREAK and any other Wild Cards books you care to present to us.
SUNDAY JULY 24
10:30 am - 11:30 am WILD CARDS panel. Half a dozen of your favorite Wild Cards writers will assemble to talk about the past, present, and future of the long-running shared world series in the field.
12:00 noon - 1:00 pm The Wild Card panelists will adjourn to AA1 to sign your books.
Later that afternoon, I will heading over to Mysterious Galaxy for my signing there, but that's offsite, and not an official part of the SDCC schedule.
A couple of notes about the signings:
1) as on my tour, I will be autographing your books, but I won't be able to inscribe or personalize them (unless by some chance you catch me at a slow time when there's no line),
2) many of these signings are keyed to particular books and projects. At Avatar, I'll be signing FEVRE DREAM, at IDW it will be DOORWAYS, for Tor WILD CARDS. The place to get your DANCE WITH DRAGONS signed is at the big general signings on Friday and Saturday. We've scheduled me for four hours of signing between those two days... so please, respect my other publishers and DO NOT ask me to sign your Ice & Fire books at the booth signings. Those are meant to promote my other projects.

Of course, there are certain things I am always willing to sign.
