Dragoncon

This is one of several “first conventions” for me this year, and it’s a big one–Dragoncon has been around for a number of years, and has become one of the biggest fantasy and science fiction conventions on the East Coast.  Besides the costumes and celebrities, it’s also got quite the author/literature track, and I’m happy […]

Gen Con 2015

This is my ninth appearance at Gen Con, seventh as member of the Writers’ Symposium, and as always I’m looking forward to my favorite convention of the year.  The Symposium continues to grow by leaps and bounds, this year featuring Terry Brooks as Guest of Honor, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part […]

Readercon

This is my (amazingly!) eighth year at Readercon, which means I’m heading up to Beantown again for a great fantasy and science fiction conference.  (As always, there may be a day pass cost for the con, but it’s well worth it given how many awesome authors and editors they have.)  This year I have two […]

Origins

Norwescon

This is my third time at Norwescon, and they’ve got me busy with five panels, two workshops (part of the Fairwood Writers Workshops again) and a reading. George R.R. Martin is the guest of honor this year, too, so I expect the convention to be hopping–but if you’re in the Seattle area, please stop by […]

World Fantasy Convention 2014

I’m back at the World Fantasy Convention for the fourth time, being held this time around in Arlington, Virginia; this time I’m on the Place Matters: Geography & Fantasy panel with several panelists (whose names are still being determined as of this schedule posting), and it looks to be an interesting conversation.  The panel is […]

Wildcat Comic Con

Right on the heels of Pittsburgh Comic Con is Wildcat Comic Con at the Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA on Saturday, September 27th; these folks have been extremely nice to me so far, and I’m looking forward to the show.  I’m again presenting on my graphic novel Icarus and how crowdfunding can bring […]
