Tor After Dark: April Edition
Missed Tor After Dark this month? Don’t worry, we’re recapping all the fun times with TJ Klune and John Scalzi right here!
Klunatics, unite! TJ Klune launched Tor After Dark, our new Instagram Live program, on Tuesday, April 14 with a complete Tor Books Insta-takeover. Kicking things off by showing off his kickass sword, TJ introduced himself and his latest book, The House in the Cerulean Sea, to the hundreds of viewers who tuned in. Klune read a short selection from the book and then moved on with a listing out of things that have made him happy during quarantine, including: the TV show Black Sails (GAY PIRATES), his friends who have taken the time to check in on him, and his adorable pets, who made surprise guest appearances on the live stream.
TJ also answered fan questions submitted through social media earlier in the day-some of our favorites included who his favorite Cerulean Sea character is (answer: Chauncey), if he’s single (wow), and if he’d want Netflix to adapt the book into a movie (answer:YESYESYESYESYES).
Before signing off for the night, TJ thanked his friends, fans, and publisher (*blushes*) while reminding everyone to take their medication and to stay safe during the quarantine. Thanks for joining Tor After Dark, TJ!

Fresh off the wildly successful launch of The Last Emperox, John Scalzi took over the Tor Books Instagram for April 21 for Tor After Dark! In a behind the scenes look, John took viewers on a tour of his home, showing off his extensive book collection, his art pieces (including but not limited to: his own image covered in buttercream frosting, Wil Wheaton on a cat Pegasus, and his daughter’s childhood photos), and his many writing awards.
After special guest appearances from his wife, Krissy (HI KRISSY) and Sugar the cat (HI SUGAR), John answered some of your most burning questions, including-how to pronounced Emperox (answer: Emper-OH, but is you prefer Emper-OX, live your best life), what the Scalzi burrito of the day is (answer: meatloaf burrito), and when the next book comes out (answer: GUYS, THE LAST ONE CAME OUT A WEEK AGO).
Thanks for joining Tor After Dark, John!
