In what is to become the busiest weekend in Denver next week, Denver Comic Con is back and better than ever at the Convention Center. Downtown Denver will be transformed with superheroes, villains, cosplay, and everything you might imagine. This will be our first year officially covering the event and we have some awesome coverage coming your way (be sure to check out our Instagram and Snapchat all next weekend). One of the best parts of the DCC is the amazing guests that are on hand to mingle with us common folk, tv and movie stars, comic book authors and illustrators, awesome vendors and more. This year the DCC has the honor of hosting four of the best authors around. They will be available at Author Alley as well as presenting a few panels. Info can be found here.
A huge lover of horror and dark fantasy stories, C. R. Richards enjoys telling tales of intrigue and adventure. Having began writing as a part-time columnist for a small entertainment newspaper, Richards has worn several hats: food critic, entertainment reviewer and cranky editor. She has now published a handful of novels, including Phantom Harvest - book one in The Mutant Casebook Series - which took home the EPIC eBook Award for Fantasy in 2014. Richards beat out entries from the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and other English speaking countries. In January, Richards releases her epic fantasy novel The Lords of Valdeon, the first installment in the Heart of the Warrior series. Through her storytelling, Richards aims to reach lovers of fantasy who are exploring alternatives to the traditional status quo. Her message is simple: One person can be a catalyst for change.

Sue Duff has dreamed of dragons and spaceships before she could even read, so it's only natural that she now combines both fantasy and science fiction as her favorite genre. Having written since high school, Duff never took it seriously until a skiing accident laid her up for an entire summer and she turned on the word processor to combat boredom. A couple years later, her first urban fantasy novel Fade to Black was one of the five finalists in the RMFW Colorado Gold Writing Contest and in 2015, Duff's writing earned her the PEN Award. Sue is a member of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and The Pikes Peak Writers. She calls Colorado home and when not saving the world one page at a time, she can be found walking her great dane, getting her hands dirty in her garden, or creating something delicious in her kitchen.
