Fox Cities Reads
Planning for the 2014 Fox Cities Reads is underway!
Wisconsin author John Jackson Miller has written many media-related novels, graphic novels, and games. He is the author of two Star Wars novels from Del Rey including Star Wars: Knight Errant and the upcoming Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith, releasing in July.
With a master's in comparative politics from Louisiana State University, he's sought to play on international and political elements in his fiction and games. He has written the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comics series since the beginning, and currently writes the Star Wars: Knight Errant companion comics to the prose novel. His other comics work includes titles such as Marvel Comics' Iron Man and Crimson Dynamo, Bongo Comics' Bart Simpson, and Star Wars: Empire for Dark Horse Comics. He also wrote the comics adaptation of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
In games, his work includes writing for the Star Wars Role-Playing Game and reference guides including the Scrye Collectible Card Game Checklist & Price Guide.
In non-fiction, his research specialties include studies into comic-book circulation history, which in 2002 spawned the first of four Standard Catalog of Comic Books volumes. He has also edited magazines including Comics Buyer's Guide, Comics & Games Retailer, and Scrye: The Guide to Collectible Card Games, serving also as Collectibles Editorial Director and later, Interactive Media Editorial Director for F+W Publications. Since that time, he has continued his research interests on his website, The Comics Chronicles.
