This isn’t a big surprise, Hearne is throwing a big shindig at the Poisoned Pen on the eve of the Con with 14 other Con guest authors. Still, it’s nice to get word from the organizers. It seems more real that way.
Hearne, who hails from Phoenix but now resides in Colorado, is the bestselling author of “The Iron Druid Chronicles.” The urban fantasy series follows Atticus, a thousand-year-old Druid turned bookstore owner, his sausage-loving dog Oberon and his apprentice Granuaile as they battle ancient gods and supernatural beings in downtown Tempe.
Hearne has also recently entered the Star Wars universe with his new novel Heir to the Jedi, a first-person tale of Luke Skywalker’s adventures between the events of A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back.
Phoenix Comicon runs from May 28-31. Keep an eye here for more author news.
