Gen Con

My seventh time at Gen Con, and the fifth as a member of the Writers’ Symposium–as the Symposium gets bigger and cooler all the time.  As usual, there are a bunch of panel appearances, signings and readings on the agenda, and in any case, Gen Con is one of the most fun conventions you’ll ever attend whether you’re into writing, gaming or both.  My schedule is as follows:
