Back From Gen Con — With News!

Last week I attended Gen Con in Indianapolis, Indiana, along with 60,000 of my closest friends. I was working the Onyx Path booth during the show, and had a great time. It was wonderful to catch up with friends — many of whom I hadn’t seen in a year or more — and to enjoy […]

The Steamy Motor City Affair

The author with Sarah Hans, author, editor, and all-around snazzy dresser I just returned from Motor City Steam Con in Livonia, Michigan, and man, are my gears tired.

More Cowbell

The last few weeks have been illuminating for me, blog-wise.

Summer of Conventions

In an effort to increase my visibility (self-promotion can be a real bear), I’ve been hitting the convention circuit a little harder this year than in the past.

My CONvergence Panel Schedule

I’ll be one of dozens – perhaps hundreds! – of speakers at sci-fi convention CONvergence in Bloomington, Minnesota July 2-5. CONvergence is a huge convention – attendance numbers over six thousand people – and is the larger of two conventions that formed a number of years ago after a split among the staff of Minnicon. […]
