If you missed R.L. Stine at C2E2, have no fear! He’ll be attending New York Comic-Con in October! He’ll only be there on Sunday though! I’m glad he was added to the event since I ran out of time to see him at C2E2. While I’m sure everyone knows who he is, here’s a little bio from the NYCC website:
Since the Goosebumps books debuted as a monthly series from Scholastic in 1992, more than 300 million copies have been sold worldwide in 32 languages—selling at the phenomenal rate of four million books per month in the mid-1990s—making Goosebumps a household name and Stine a worldwide publishing celebrity (and Jeopardy answer).
R.L. Stine is one of the best-selling children’s authors in history, with more than 400 million books sold. In 1986 he wrote his first teen horror novel, Blind Date, which became an instant best-seller. Many scary novels followed, including Beach House, Hit And Run, and The Girlfriend. In 1989 he created the Fear Street series, the best-selling young adult book series in history, with more than 100 titles. Both the Fear Street and Goosebumps series were developed with Parachute Publishing, a top independent producer of children’s books and entertainment. Other R.L. Stine book creations include: Rotten School, Dangerous Girls, The Haunting Hour, and The Nightmare Room (also a TV series).
