Myke’s 2019 New York Comic Con Schedule!

By | Comms | No Comments

Hey all, I’m doing fewer cons these days as I focus on TV and writing projects, but NYCC is my local con, so I never miss it. Here’s my schedule if you’re in town and would like to say hi. As always, I’ll be wandering the show floor in between panels and I try to be a friendly guy. If you want to say hi or have me sign something, just tap me on the shoulder and I’ll be happy to oblige. Hope to see some of you this weekend! Thursday – 11AM: GIVING AWAY SIGNED BACKLIST! – (Tor Booth – #2136) – I’ll be giving away signed copies of THE ARMORED SAINT and THE QUEEN OF CROWS in anticipation of next month’s release of THE KILLING LIGHT! Friday – 11AM: MAGIC AND MAYHEM – 1A18 – 2019 is the year for breaking all the rules. Gone are the days of simple good-versus-evil narratives; these are complicated times that call…

The Poisonous Cult of the Military Hero

By | Comms | 10 Comments

“I’m not a hero. I just happened to be the medic there that day,” said former Army Staff Sergeant Ronald Shurer, who received the Medal of Honor from President Trump in October. Medal of Honor recipient Clint Romesha denied hero status in similar words, “I’m not. I don’t feel that way. I never have.” Sal Giunta, yet another Medal of Honor winner, said “The fact that someone would call me personally a hero seems inappropriate.” These sentiments are echoed down the line by military legend after legend varying only in the specific words chosen – Dakota Meyer in Afghanistan, Dick Winters in WWII, William Henry Johnson in WWI. They say, over and over again in the most unambiguous terms, that they are not heroes. The problem is, we don’t listen. The news is currently alive with story after story detailing Trump’s endless attacks on deceased “war hero” John McCain. Gillette’s latest ad campaign targets the military with the tag line…

Myke’s Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC) Schedule!

By | Comms | No Comments

Hey all, I’m fortunate enough to be a literary guest again this year at ECCC, and I’m looking forward to catching up with fans and friends out west. Keep in mind that I’m a personable, friendly dude who is always overjoyed that anyone has read my work or watched me on TV. If you don’t catch up to me at one of my official signings, feel free to stop me in the hall to say hi. If you want anything signed (please have a pen handy) I’ll be happy to do it pretty much anywhere you catch me except the bathroom (under absolutely no circumstances are you to speak to me or even acknowledge my existence if we run into one another in the bathroom – that is just fucking unconscionable). Here’s my schedule, and I hope to see some of you this coming weekend! (All locations are in the Washington State Convention Center unless otherwise specified. * Star Wars…

2018 DragonCon Schedule!

By | Comms | No Comments

It’s that time of year again! The promise of autumn galvanizes New Yorkers to trudge on through the simmering vat of boiling hot garbage that is their fine city. Convenience stores around the country begin stocking up on plastic jack-o-lanterns and battery powered cauldrons with kicking witches legs sticking out of the top (because if they’re going to play Christmas music in October, they’re sure as hell going to sell this crap in August), and 80k+ dedicated fans descend on the unsuspecting city of Atlanta, ready to turn it into the biggest nerd-party of the year. There’s a lot in my life to be thankful for, and the fact that I continue to be a guest at DragonCon year after year is high amongst them. I’ll be there again this year, paneling, signing, and once again teaching a class of how to write combat (if you missed it at Phoenix, here’s your chance to get in!). Psyched to see friends,…

By | Comms | No Comments

Man, Phoenix Comic Fest (PHXCF) is next week! This is one of my favorites, and I’m super psyched to be heading back to Arizona. I’ll be out for the full event this year, and I have deliberately asked the organizers to fill my schedule so I can get as much time with fans as possible before I head back east. If you can’t make PHXCF but still want to see me, I’ll be at the Elevengeddon Multi-Author Sci-Fi Event at the Poisoned Pen Bookstore on Wednesday, May 23rd at 7:00PM, along with: Emily Devenport Cory Doctorow Jason Fry Aaron Mahnke Sylvain Neuvel K. Arsenault Rivera John Scalzi Victoria (V.E.) Schwab Scott Sigler Charles Soule Chuck Wendig Sam Sykes (Please note that Sam is listed last). We’ll be signing books and hanging out with fans at the store, located at 4014 N Goldwater Blvd. in Scottsdale, AZ. It’s a great chance to meet us without having to contend with the madness of…
