Anyone who knows us knows we’re Pennsylvania through and through. Like the Eagles fans that walk among us, we’re proud to call Philadelphia home. (Sorry, Steelers fans.) Like the politics of this vast state, we can’t decide between Primanti Bros and a good ol’ fashioned cheesesteak. (Fries on a sandwich, y’all. How can you resist?) And like any nostalgic and feeling human being, we love a good hometown hero. Today, in the spirit of our Pennsylvania love, we’re taking you on a literary tour of our beloved state. Wish you were here!

Are you excited for San Diego Comic-Con? WE ARE. We'll be at booth 1636 and would love to meet you! Drop by to say hi, talk books, and meet some of our authors!
This year, we're participating in some fun scavenger hunts — an official Buffy Scavenger Hunt where you can sign up to become a Vampire Hunt Slayer during the con, and the Baker Street Babes SherlockeDCC Scavenger Hunt, where you can follow clues and solve puzzles all over SDCC. You can win some great prizes by participating in these hunts, so make sure to join in the fun!
Oh, and of course we'll have our secret password. Whisper Quirk E. Godmother and you'll get something cool.
Follow us on Twitter for updates on panels, signings, and guest author appearances at our booth. For all giveaways, signings, and more, see the schedule below:

It's time for a Liam Neeson Literary Roles post, and we're fawning over every literary role he’s ever performed. As difficult as it will be, let’s forget about the Taken series for a moment (or as long as it takes for you to read this blog post) and join us for a journey into the worlds of King Arthur, Victor Hugo, C.S. Lewis, and Patrick Ness.

If you’re a fan of true crime, find a list of recommended true crime documentaries and books is just a google away. It’s a bit harder to find a list of solid fiction recommendations; books and tv shows that scratch that itch for shocking, twisty, and compelling crime drama. We at Quirk have you covered with pop culture that will keep your eyes glued to pages and screens long into the night. Shout-out to the murderinos out there – this one’s for you!
