I’m told both Amazon & B&N have Blood of Ambrose in stock. I’m also told that the delivery gremlins are not horsing around in delivering author & contributor copies.

Flying Further

I’m looking for a few cons of at least 500 people a year and outside the Northeast-Mid Atlantic to do in 2010. I’m probably only willing to do two real long distance ones since I’m told I have to be productive at least twice a year so two cons in anyone area are probably out. All […]

I was invited back to Ravencon and being a well run con they had me up on their website months ago. Being an airhead, I managed to forget to book room. I’ve just done so. Now i just need to figure out if I’m flying, driving, or taking the train. Ravencon is great, and anyone who’s […]

Those who were at Lunacon will be unsurprised that the Good is by far the longest section. The good:I arrived just before seven pm Thursday, having not eaten since mid day, I was merely famished. Dave & Barb Freer were in the lobby ready to start eating anyone who stopped moving, or was wearing an […]

This is only a test. Had this been an actual entry there would have been some content someone could confuse for worthwhile. This is only a test.

One of the more important early sites is: More throughout the Con

In addition to Dave Freer i have two other clients attending Lunacon. Chris is an Aussie so he probably won’t make it to cons stateside all that often, Charles Gannon is known to quiet a few from his days as a game writer.

Gah!

I come back to LJ after days away due to Real Life and other foul substances, and the first thing I run across is yet another post on Racefail ’09. I don’t know where to begin on that rolling, rotting, insipid heap in vitriol, ignorance and self congratulation, so I will for the sake of not […]

Not that I’ve been around much lately, but expect me not to be reading anyone’s LJ for a few days until the current round of "X is a racist. Y is a bigot. Z is a fathead just stirring shit up is over." There are two reasons for this: 1) Drama is a nice thing […]

I’m not sure I’ll ever figure out the publishing industry. Leaving aside some of the arcane intricacies of how things are paid for, and the interesting paths a book may take from writer to publisher to book stores, there are all sorts of weird things going on. The latest and at least to me most […]
