The Joys of July

July has been a lovely book-month so far. I just received my author’s copies of the truly gorgeous New Annotated Frankenstein (the official pub date is August 8)–thank you, Liveright/Norton for another amazingly beautiful design! I’m very proud to be doing my first-ever signing at San Diego Comic-Con, from 5 to 6 pm on Friday, July 21, at the Mysterious Galaxy booth, Booth #1119, with pre-release copies of Frankenstein that Norton sent them.

It was also the month in which we (my editor Janet Byrne and I) finished New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft: Beyond the Mythos, which will be the second and final volume of the set (25 more stories), and delivered the manuscript to Liveright/Norton. We’re on track for October 2018 publication!

And finally, editor Scott Nybakken and I wrapped up Watchmen: The Annotated Edition (with much help from Dave Gibbons). It’s racing off to the printers for publication before year-end, in late November! I can’t wait to see the final product!

Whew! So, of course, it’s a good time to get started on something new! I’ve already begun work on a massive annotated mystery collection–stayed tuned for further details!

Hope to see you at Comic-Con or at NecronomiCon in Providence in August! And I’ll be signing Frankenstein for my good friends at Dark Delicacies bookstore, 3512 West Magnolia Blvd., in Burbank, CA, on Sunday, August 13, at 4 pm–come on by!
