Home Alone

Well, not really alone. Parris is here, and my minions, and the Cocteau staff, and the cats... but I am not in San Diego at Comicon, and I have to admit, that feels strange.

Staying home was the right decision. I just got back from Chicago and the Dead shows, and before that it was Europe, and it is hardly as if HBO needed me in San Diego to represent... not with so much of our cast on hand. I have so much work to do, I am way behind on everything, and I have a wedding to attend in Jersey in a few weeks, and worldcon after that... and if truth be told, San Diego has gotten overwhelming in recent years. There are always good times catching up with friends, and hanging with the cast, but it's not as if I can walk the floor anymore and look for old comic books, the way I once did.

Even so... even so... it does make me a little sad, not being there.

Anyway, those of you who are there, be sure and catch THE EXPANSE premiere. I wish I could. Everything I've seen suggests that it will be a terrific show. The books were certainly great. Say hi to Daniel and Ty for me.

You might also visit the Random House booth to buy a calendar, and drop by the Tor/ Macmillan booth to buy a stack of books and show your support.

Supporting Tor
Boycotts in general seem to be counter-productive these days. It seems that every time some group says they are going to boycott something for political reasons, the loyal opposition show up in force and it ends up as a very large boon for the boycotted. Think how much business Chick-fil-a got when a boycott was called for. People who don't believe the same way as Truitt Cathy or particularly like chicken showed up to support free speech. I suspect the Tor boycott will end much the same way. Lots of people will buy books that they might not have otherwise.
