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 […]

Well, I ended the con the right way. Exhausted, satisfied and wishing I’d done more. I barely got a chance to some friends and pros like Allen Wold, James Maxey, Tom Kratman and Jagi Lamplighter and KT Pinto. I was lucky enough to be on a panel with Gray Rinehart who is both fun and knowledgeable. […]

Having a blast at Ravencon, per usual. My flight out Friday morning was perfect, we boarded a bit late, but I’ve never seen such a large jet have everyone boarded and belted so fast. If i had to guess I’d say it took less than fifteen minutes for the nearly two hundred folks on board […]

Yo! In the near future I’ll be doing a guest blog or two for one or two sites. Yes, yes this is amazing since I seem to barely remember I have my own blog. But what can I say, I was bribed. Speaking of which.* If you really want something to think about bribing me with, this is […]

Last night i got, and returned the programming email for Ravencon! Who’s going? When are you getting in?

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 […]

James Enge has been nomitated for the April/May discussion over at Good Reads. He’s not quite leading yet, but I have faith in my readers to correct that minor issue. It just so happens that in April James will be at Ravencon which none of you for whom it is an option should miss. Enjoy! […]

So far I’m planning on two cons for sure for 2010. My annual pilgrimage to the wilds of Cambridge Ma for Arisia is locked and loaded. I should be there late Friday night through mid morning Monday. I’ll be in the overflow hotel. And of course Ravencon, land of delights and devilry will once more […]

After Friday night I never did put my contacts back in so if I didn’t recognize you, I’m sorry I couldn’t actually see you from more than a few feet away and your name tag was a total lost cause. I really love Ravencon, and in case I didn’t mention it enough times during the […]

I had a lot of fun at the Q&A panel today, and was shocked by the number of people who showed up and were a very entertaining crowd to work with. The mil-sf panel was killer, Julie Cochrane, Bud Sparhawk, Mike McPhail, Chuck Gannon and myself along with an assist to several great audience members […]

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 […]

Raven bound

While the title may sound like something fit for the adult film world, I’m really headed to one of my faveorite conventions of the year. Right now I’m sitting on the shuttlebus to Logan and expect to be making a few calls from the terminal and doing some client reading before getting high in the […]

Having gotten buried in reading, both work and fun, I completely neglected to book a flight for Ravencon this year. That’s now done. Next years con schedule is rounding out too. It looks like; Boskone, Norwescon and World Fantasy Con.

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 […]

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.

This is the type of horrifically hard work I have to do. The ladies are the fabulous lady author Julie Cochrane with the dark hair, and the future marine Kate J with the light.

Well, for another year of excellent con is over. Tear down is done, and the Dead Dog has been doused with booze and food. I had two panels this morning, the second half of Allen Wold’s writing workshop which was fun, but i think we’d scared off a couple of the participants. After that was […]

This is such a killer con. The dealers room has actual variety, the panelists are fun, the staff are among the clue burdened. Last night at the opening ceremony, Mike Pederson managed to put name and face together for about forty people without blinking or getting any wrong. This morning i took part in Allen […]

I’m pretty sure I mentioned once or twice that I’d be at Ravencon this weekend. I know it says so on my website. Now I just wish real life hadn’t gotten in the way of getting ready for the con until tonight. A well… I’ll be looking at some of the slush this weekend as […]
