Autographs/Signings

Joining the RoberCon family this year is fantasy author David B. Coe (aka D. B. Jackson).
Under his pen name, D.B. Jackson, he has written The Islevale Cycle, a time travel/epic fantasy series. The first book, Time’s Children, received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly, calling it “an un-put-downable fantasy narrative” and was named the Best Fantasy Novel of 2018 by Reviews and Robots.
Using his PhD in history and his spectacular gift for narrative, his Thieftaker Chronicles sets readers in the pre-Revolutionary Boston, combing elements of urban fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction.
David will be joining RoberCon over the two days for Q & A panels, signings, and more.
