Who's Publishing What: See You at San Diego

See You At San Diego, Mathew Klickstein’s latest book, is being hailed as the comprehensive chronicle of Comic-Con International (and modern geekdom itself) as told through stories by nearly 50 well-known members of the Comic-Con and fandom scene. It releases on Sept. 6, but is available for pre-orders.

This full-fledged oral history, bursting with intimate reflections, hilarious observations, and at times, heartbreaking, often thought-provoking stories, is about how the geek at last inherited the earth and the story of the transformation of mainstream American pop culture into comic book culture over the past century. It includes more than 400 photos.

Klickstein is a prominent pop culture historian, having penned such books as: SLIMED! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden AgeSpringfield Confidential: Jokes, Secrets, and Outright Lies from a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons (with original series writer Mike Reiss); and Selling Nostalgia: A Neurotic Novel. A longtime journalist, documentary filmmaker, television producer, playwright, podcaster and novelist, Klickstein also recently dipped his toe in the comic book creation realm with his series You Are Obsolete. His six-part audio documentary Comic-Con Begins, in partnership with SiriusXM/Stitcher, is available on all audio platforms. He lives in Dayton, Ohio.
