I love Ravencon. You should come. Chuck Gannon is here, and busy paneling. Go look for him. Some really good panels this year, even by Ravencon standards. Morality of Magneto with the brilliant and lovely Day Al-Mohamed who is at her first Ravencon, Alhen Moin, Joan Wnedland, and Christopher was a blast. Lots of interesting […]

I had a great time going to for the day on Saturday. I ran into some friends, chatted with a few pro’s that  know and got reminded how much fun a con can be when one isn’t on the schedule. It’s the first time in more than five years I’ve been to a con and not on […]

For those of you who have never had the joyous experience of being in a smoky room with contacts, I applaud your good sense. I on the other hand got to spend half of last night with my contacts going through a Navy Seal workout in my eyes. But that’s not nearly as important as […]

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 […]

Well, it’s snowing outside, but the con is still in full swing. My two panels were well attended. The first one was with the fabulous Sara A. Harvey, Keith R. A. DeCandido, James D. Macdonald, and Inanna Arthen. Where we covered bad contracts, the unfortunate experiences of Sara and Inanna, James’s work with Writers Beware […]

I now have my hotel rooms booked for Arisia and Lunacon. Y’all recall that Lunacon will have the redoubtable Dave Freer in town for his first appearance in the U.S. in almost five years? And that James Enge will be in the building to tantilize you with the book y’all have just preordered having seen […]

Conjecture has wrapped and i met some fun people. Getting to meet sartorias , shweta_narayan ,gregvaneekhout and half a dozen others was fun. I got to catch up with old friends, and was saved the wrath of a con chair when someone else brought up a topic i was told not to mention. Conjecture was […]
