Update! No panel, but I’m still signing at NYCC

Just in case anyone out there was actually hoping to see/hear me on what was to be my sole panel at New York Comic Con (“More Than Just a Book,” Saturday @ 4:45PM), that panel has, for reasons beyond my control, been canceled and replaced by the panel “Genre-Benders: Out of the Box Science Fiction Novels,” of which I am not a scheduled participant.

At this time it is not clear where, when, or if I will be signing copies of my books at the con. If new information regarding signing opportunities becomes available, I will post such updates as soon as I am able.



If you’re coming to NYCC and would like to have me sign one or more of my books, you will be able to find me in Podcast Alley, at the table of The Chronic Rift in Booth #3362, on Friday, October 12, from 2pm–3pm, and again on Saturday, October 13, from 3pm–5pm.

Reminder: There will be only 20 advance copies of The Persistence of Memory, Book One of my new Star Trek: TNG trilogy, Cold Equations. You can buy them only at the Barnes and Noble pavilion (#1112 on your NYCC exhibitor map) on the convention floor, and this is a strictly first-come, first-served opportunity. B&N also will have 20 copies of my last Star Trek Vanguard novel, Storming Heaven.

Plus, feel free to bring for autographing any of my books you already own.

My sincere thanks to fellow-authors John S. Drew and Keith R.A. DeCandido for giving me a place to hang my hat and sign my books at this year’s NYCC!

Cold Equations, in the house!

My author’s copies of The Persistence of Memory, book one of my new Star Trek: The Next Generation trilogy Cold Equations, have arrived:

Aren’t they bee-yoo-tee-ful?

If you’re coming to New York Comic Con and want to get your hands on advance sale copies of this book, you’ll have to move quickly: only 20 copies will be made available for the show, and they’ll be sold on the convention floor by first time NYCC vender Barnes and Noble, which will also be hosting my signing.

They’ll also have copies of my final Star Trek Vanguard novel, Storming Heaven, so if you missed that back in March, pick it up next week in New York and get it signed by moi!

Ready for NY Comic Con

Yesterday, I received my 4-Day Pro badge for New York Comic Con, where I’ll be speaking on panels and signing copies of my newest novel, Star Trek: The Next Generation — Cold Equations, Book I: The Persistence of Memory (assuming copies of the book actually show up in time for the convention).

The fine folks at NYCC were sure to remind me in the letter that came with my badge that it is “non-transferrable.” In other words, it’s not for use by anyone but me. There’s just one problem: the 2012 NYCC badges don’t have a space for the bearer’s name. So how will they know if people loan them out?

This is also kind of annoying for another reason. When I’m doing book signings at big events like comic cons, it’s helpful to see fans’ names on their badges when I’m trying to get the inscriptions right on their books.

I understand why NYCC can’t print customized badges for each pro attendee, but it would have been nice if they had left us some place to write or paste in our own names. Ah, well. Another con, another gripe.

Now, if we can just get NYCC to actually list me as a guest, and realize that I’m the David Mack on the Saturday 4:45PM panel, “More Than Just a Book: Expanded Universes from Page to Screen”, this might turn out to be less than a total fiasco of a weekend.
