Here’s a photo journal from my second day (Saturday) at this year’s #SDCC2016:
“The Female Geek” panel featuring (l to r): Leigh Bardugo (GRISH trilogy), Sabaa Tahir, Margaret Stohl (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES), Madeline Ashby (COMPANY TOWN), Kathleen Smith (THE FANGIRL LIFE), Kiersten White (AND I DARKEN), and Sarah Kuhn (HEROINE COMPLEX). Now my copy of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES is signed by both Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia.
Cosplayers King Arthur and his faithful servant Patsy, from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. “Message for you, sir!”
YA Fantasy panel featuring (l to r): Tobie Easton (EMERGE), Jessica Cluess (A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING), Soman Chainani (THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL), Sara Maas (THRONE OF GLASS), Gena Showalter (FIRSTLIFE), and Thomas Sniegoski (SAVAGE).
Worldbuilding panel featuring (l to r) the fuzzy but talented Brandon Mull (FIVE KINGDOMS series), Scott Siegler (THE GENERATIONS trilogy), Seanan McGuire (OCTOBER DAY series), Gini Koch (THE ALIEN series), and Claudia Christian (WOLF’S EMPIRE). Moderated wonderfully by author Cindy Pon.
Even the audience was talented. Here with CHANGELING author Delia Sherman.
Here with TREMONTAINE series author Ellen Kushner. Notice Delia keeping an eye on us. 🙂
With ALIEN series author and fun gal, Gini Koch.
With Babylon-5 and The Hidden actress Claudia Christian.
