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. For a semi-introvert like myself, this can be both a terrifying and exhilarating experience. And also tiring. First up was Origins, back in early June. Held each […]

Besides speaking on a number of panels, I will also be refereeing a Zombie Dice tournament as part of the “Game With The Guests” event on Friday night of the con. The tournament is simple. […]

Walking Dead Still Walking

When I first saw the preview trailers for Walking Dead, I was sold. They were effectively put together, gripping, and tense. I was ready to see it, even having no experience with the comics or graphic novels. After the pilot, I was completely sold. This was something fresh and different; a decent treatment of the […]

Odyssey Con is THIS WEEKEND!
