The rumor faerie says I should have my Boskone schedule by Monday. Its been a couple years since I was there, I can’t wait. Who’s gonna be there?

Ravencon did not disappoint, they found a new and larger hotel with great rooms, a hotel restarant with solid food, decent prices and drinkable coffee and of course continued having excellent panels.  survived his very first con without a bit of panic and with his low key, wry panache. I swung into one of his […]

Arisia! The Halfquel

I have made it through the first half of the con. Those of you following me on Twitter will note that a certain person who shall remain nameless has been a very bad influence and forced me to retweet something of theirs. I was afraid for my life. I’ve run into Shira& Adam, Tempest, Trisha […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

So, who’s coming for sure, who hopes to make it and when are you arriving for Lunacon? I’ll be there early Friday. You can see the list of who’s who and their schedule here.

Well Con goers it is nearly that time again! Lunacon is almost here with a Guest of Honor who not only hasn’t been in the USA in five years, is looking forward to his first stint as Guest of Honor. Dave Freer who has over a dozen books on the shelf ranging from epic fantasy to […]

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 […]

It is your last chance to vote in the P&E polls.Dave Freer & Eric Flint are ahead in the Best SF/F Novel and Dave is currently near the top of the best Author ranks. Go vote! In the other categories, friends of mine that I’m told were nominated included Sarah Hoyt, James Enge (for a short), […]

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 […]

In addition to Ravencon and Lunacon, I’ve been invited back to Arisia for next year. I’ve also been invited to Balticon. These will probably be the only cons I do next year. I may do either Worldcon or World Fantasy as well. I’m possibly doing Book Expo too.

I had two panels today, one with Stoney Compton, and a couple others whose names escape me. And another that I’ll cover later. This is a video of some of the performers from last night. Special note for the people who were annoyed at the performers. I am much meaner than they are. Oh yes, […]

Howdy ho! I’m here, you should be too. Today i have two early panels, one at 10am “Science and the Art of Logistics” followed immediately by a panel on writers groups at 11:30. David Drake i believe has three back to back panels this morning. He is braver than I. Jason Cordova has brought his […]

Despite not getting more than four hours sleep between the end of day three and when realized I needed to move to make it to my 10am panel, I did make it. I have no idea if we made any sense, i have no idea if i made any sense. The panel to me spent […]

Yes, this is really late. Day three was like today a day where there were no scheduled panels for me. It was also a busy, busy day. The only important meetings were with the Chairs of Conjecture and Lunacon. We talked about a couple idea’s and people who wanted to be there. Later i had […]

Yesterday was fun, and all the set work was done by two so I relaxed a bit more the rest of the day. The morning panel The Agent Behind the Curtain was a bit more general than I expected, but probably what the audience needed. Joshua Bilmes did a fantastic job moderating, Eleanor Wood contributed […]

Well I made in one piece. I even managed to sit still on the plane for about five hours. I think I even kept the counter rotation of my feet down to six times an hour. An amazing thing happened happened. Not one of the twenty or twenty five kids on the flight cried once. […]

So which of my readers will in Denver? Assuming my luck with travel holds out, I’ll be arriving late Tuesday in Denver. While I can’t promise to be interesting, or even fully awake I’m up for a casual breakfast in the Sheraton eatery around 9/930 if there’s any interest on Wednesday morning.
