To celebrate the 49th Comic-Con Harbor Drive will be closed to vehicle traffic between 1st Avenue and Park Blvd that includes cars, bikes, scooters, motorcycles (I assume that rideshares too but wasn’t sure from the release – see below), dockless share bikes, electric scooters, and no parking anywhere within the Convention Center’s secure perimeter. The exception of shuttle buses and emergency vehicles. Also only badged members (attendees of Comic-Con 2018) will have access to the front drive, stairs and surrounding sidewalks of the san Diego Convention Center so non-badged friends have to be met off site.

Writing has kept her busy with her newest novel released May 2018 The World of All Souls: The Complete Guide to A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life, a book the deeply explores the mythology of All Souls Trilogy that enriched the modern fairy tale with character bios, maps, recipes, the science behind creatures, magic, and alchemy with her delightful prose interweaved with a historian’s detail.
Ms. Harkness has been working with the production company Bad Wolf to bring A Discovery of Witches to television this fall with distribution by Sky One all the while juggling a new novel called Times Convert that will be release this fall 2018 that takes place in the “The All Souls Trilogy,” universe!
