Cole is the author of the “Shadow Ops” series, a military action trilogy set in a world where magic has returned, and the new Gemini Cell a prequel about a Navy SEAL struggling for his humanity after being resurrected and recruited by a sorcerous black ops organization. A lifelong geek as well as a military veteran, Cole made a splash last year during Sam Sykes’ Batsu Game after a fatal encounter with habanero salsa.
Hough is the author of the “Dire Earth Cycle”, a futuristic trilogy where a plague has wiped out much of humanity, with the survivors flocking to Darwin, Australia, where an alien space elevator has suppressed the plague’s effects. His newest novel Zero World, hits stores in September.
In addition to Phoenix Comicon, both authors will be participating in Kevin Hearne’s “Elevengeddon” event at the Poisoned Pen on May 27. So even if you can’t make the Con, you still have a chance to meet both.
