Update #27 – December 8, 2018 – News! News! News!
Posted by Bill Schelly on September 7, 2018
ITEM: I’m very excited that my new biography JAMES WARREN, EMPIRE OF MONSTERS is available for pre-order, and will be released in early March of 2019. I spent a lot of time researching this one, and I can’t wait for it to be launched into an unsuspecting world. I’ve already held an advance copy in my hot little hands, and know that it turned out wonderfully well. Of course, I’m not exactly unbiased. YOU will be the final judge of that. Pre-order now at Amazon.com.
ITEM: This is just a reminder that AUDIO BOOKS are available for both of my tomes published by North Atlantic Books. Go to www.northatlanticbooks.com to purchase and download these nifty items, which bring OTTO BINDER, THE LIFE AND WORK OF A COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION VISIONARY and SENSE OF WONDER, MY LIFE IN COMIC FANDOM—THE WHOLE STORY into the audio realm.
ITEM: OK, here’s some big news. Bud’s Art Books has acquired nearly all of the Hamster Press books from the Hamster Warehouse, and are selling them at great discount prices. Go to www.budsartbooks.com and type “Schelly” into the search box. You’ll find two pages of items which include signed copies of THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMIC FANDOM, FANDOM’S FINEST COMICS, THE EYE COLLECTION, THE BEST OF STAR STUDDED COMICS, and ALTER EGO: THE BEST OF THE LEGENDARY FANZINE—all at $8.95 or $10.95!! Plus, Bud has many of my other books, too, so it’s a great place for “one-stop” shopping for Schelly books, mags, and comics. (These are signed “right on the book,” not bookplates.)
ITEM: Coming soon is THE BILL SCHELLY READER from Pulp Hero Press, the fine folks who made my BILL SCHELLY TALKS TO THE FOUNDERS OF COMIC FANDOM books available. THE BILL SCHELLY READER collects the best of my prose articles, from the pages of ALTER EGO magazine and elsewhere. It, like the others from Pulp Hero Press, will have a super affordable Kindle edition The publication date is uncertain, but publisher Bob McLain tells me it will be in early 2019. Watch for it!!
ITEM: I’m Fan Guest of Honor at ComicFest 2019 in San Diego, which takes place March 7 – 10, 2019, at the Four Points by Sheraton – San Diego. It’s the 7th annual ComicFest, one that you’ll not want to miss. Come by and say “Hi!” I’ll be signing copies of JAMES WARREN, EMPIRE OF MONSTERS!
ITEM: Watch for my long “History of Comic-Con: International” in the souvenir book for next summer’s Comic-Con. The book is free to all attendees!!
