"Trust Me, I'm the Doctor"

Calling all Time Lords and their Companions!  Having just reached its 50-year milestone this past year,
Doctor Who has proven itself to be an enduring staple of nerd culture.  Simon R. Green (Secret History series), Myke Cole (The Gemeni Cell), Paul Park (All Those Vanished Engines), Anton Strout (Incarnate), Alex Hughes (Vacant), and Steve Bein (the Fated Blades series)  celebrate the life and times of the Doctor, and discuss what Peter Capaldi's Doctor contributes with Ali T. Kokmen. Allonsy!

1 PM-1:45 PM (TABLE 19)
Hope to see you in New York! Come say hi and see whatever clever nerdy t-shirts I've purchased.

The third and final book of The Spellmason Chronicles, INCARNATE!

When Alexandra Belarus discovered her family’s secret ability to breathe life into stone, she uncovered an entire world of magic hidden within New York City—a world she has accidentally thrown into chaos. A spell gone awry has set thousands of gargoyles loose upon Manhattan, and it’s up to Lexi and her faithful protector, Stanis, to put things right.

But the stress of saving the city is casting a pall over Lexi and Stanis’s relationship, driving them to work separately to solve the problem. As Stanis struggles to unite the gargoyle population, Lexi forges unlikely alliances with witches, alchemists and New York’s Finest to quell an unsettling uprising led by an ancient and deadly foe long thought vanquished.

To save her city, Lexi must wield more power than ever before with the added hope of recovering a mysterious artifact that could change her world—and bring her closer to Stanis than she ever thought possible…


 With over fifteen years in publishing, the last five of them being published, I love to go to conventions and writer's weekends to help others on their path to publication.  I've lectured at San Diego Comic Con, Gen Con, Brooklyn Festival of Books, Romance Writer's of America chapters, and many others, so if you are interested in having me as a guest, please contact me.

Attention, my beasties! Alchemystic, Stonecast and The Simon Canderous series is now available at audible.com!  All five books, unabridged!   That's like fifty hours of ear-ly pleasure!  ___________________________________________________________

And remember! The best tool I have at my disposal is YOU, dear reader.  Word of mouth is what really helps to keep a new book series like mine going, so if you enjoyed Alchemystic, Dead Waters, Dead Matter, Deader Still  or Dead To Me, please help spread the word.

What people are saying about the Simon Canderous series:

"Simon Canderous is a reformed thief and a psychometrist.  By turns despondent over his luck with the ladies (not always living) and his struggle with the hierarchy of his mysterious department (not always truthful), Simon's life veers from crisis to crisis.  Following Simon's adventures is like being the pinball in an especially antic game, but it's well worth the wear and tear."   -Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse series, aka HBO's True Blood

"Simon Canderous is the kind of guy who can do magical things with his hands…literally. With only his wry sarcasm, self-deprecating humor and preternatural 'talent' for Psychometry to keep him out of trouble, Simon navigates the supernatural underbelly of New York City with a style and panache worthy of a thousand sequels." -Amber Benson, author of the Calliope Reaper-Jones series and co-author of the Ghosts of Albion

"Urban fantasy with a wink and a nod. Anton Strout has written a good- hearted send-up of the urban fantasy genre. Dead To Me is a genuinely fun book with a fresh and firmly tongue-in-cheek take on the idea of paranormal police. The laughs are frequent as are the wry smiles. I'm looking forward to seeing what he does next." -Kelly McCullough, author of Cybermancy, Webmage and Codespell

"Real magic in a real, gritty world and a hero whose moral compass wavers--delightful!" -Tamora Pierce, NY Times bestselling writer "Part Ghostbusters, part Men-in-Black, Strout’s debut is both dark and funny, with quirky characters, an eminently likable protagonist, and the comfortable, familiar voice of a close friend. His mix of (mostly) secret bureaucratic bickering and offbeat action shows New York like we’ve never seen it before. Make room on the shelf, ‘cause you’re going to want to keep this one!" -Rachel Vincent, author of Stray and Rogue
