NYCC 2014 Recap: Sunday

Posted by Meg

Sunday is kids day at NYCC. We figured if we brought Cassie to the show floor for an hour, two hours max, she would be overwhelmed and ready to go home and take a nap.

Instead, she donned on her Wonder Woman costume and forged ahead for nearly 5 hours!! And she was still doing donkey kicks before bedtime.

NYCC 2014 Recap: Friday

Posted by Meg

Day 2 at NYCC this year meant starting the day with a whirlwind Warded Man signing at the Random House booth.

Check out this line …

The Warded Man came to Comic Con this year … he needed his life story signed, of course.

Random House provided fans and new readers with complimentary Warded Mans!

There were some extremely nifty costumes and gifts this year:

 Fan Mia brought delicious googly-eyed treats to keep Peat from starving during the con!

But Daniel is the one who came the most prepared

Theresa, on the left, designed and created the costume!

Author and hero fight!

After the Random House booth signing, Peat had to test his geek knowledge in this year’s Geek Geek Revolution Panel with Amber Benson, Maureen Johnson, M.D. Payne, Lou Anders, John Scalzi and moderated by Pat Rothfuss. We were all sure he had won, but then Scalzi took the win. Did somebody say recount?

You can check out a video of the whole panel here.

Gearing up for some geeky trivia! The audience tried to stump the authors … and succeeded!

Crowds can be scary … especially when you are trying to prove your nerd cred

At the signing, following the panel with @PatrickRothfuss and @amber_benson photobomb. Pat brought a copy of The Slow Regard of Silent Things to the con especially for Peat and surprised him with it at the signing. They are making faces to keep from losing their dignity in an unmanly show of affection.

Peat’s agent Joshua was celebrating both his 50th birthday and the 20th anniversary of his JABberwocky Literary Agency

More trivia at Barnes & Noble!

The SF vs Fantasy Family Feud was a bit tight around the table. Peat may have almost fallen off the stage a couple times.
