Book Expo America 2011 was quite the hot ticket for fantasy, scifi, and horror fans, as this year’s convention was seemingly hijacked by authors writing in those genres. Shur’tugal and its sister-site Lytherus were on hand for all three days covering the latest news, authors, books, and buzz from the show floor. We also covered every aspect of author Christopher Paolini’s visit, including his exclusive unveiling of the newest excerpt from Inheritance (Book 4).
We’ve compiled a helpful summary of the best features from our coverage of the event, including panel write-ups, buzzable and recommendation-worthy books and authors, daily event summaries, and much more. We’ll also be launching a series of giveaways, offering fans a chance to get their hands on some of the hottest fantasy/scifi from this year’s convention!
