More Housekeeping Notes

I’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con this year. I wasn’t sure I’d make it, because 1) new baby, and 2) after last year I swore a mighty oath never to return, because I feel that Comic-Con contributes to the runaway commercialization and dilution of the nerd culture that is pretty much all I have by way of an ethnic identity.

Then they said, wanna be on a panel with Amber Benson? And I was all, sure.

Principles: I used to have them. But seriously, if you’re going to Comic-Con, come say hi. To Amber Benson. You can just nod at me in passing, I’ll understand.

Also: next week The Magicians moves up to number 10 on the Times bestseller list. Thank you everybody for making this happen. I could make a joke, but actually I can’t. I’m just so proud and happy.

    I’d be curious to see you expound on the idea of “runaway commercialization and dilution of the nerd culture”. I’d never really considered the idea before and I’m finding it kind of intriguing.

  2. Principles vs. Amber Benson…

    You made the right choice.

    Will you be signing or just doing the panel?
