So You Want To Be A Convention Panelist?
Yep, it's time for my annual(ish) guide to becoming a panelist at conventions. The short version is that it's not as easy as you think. The long version is based on years of attending and running cons. I've attended - and helped run - all sizes of cons. But I don't speak for any con I now run or hav

This post is two years in the making. Two years ago I was running the Hugo Ceremony at LoneStarCon 3. And I promised to post at least one cool picture I was handed afterward. So here, at last:

Forgot to post this. Pardon the typos, but I made one of my patent-pending klutzy moves last night, and I'm still waiting on the sodium naproxen to kick in. 

In addition to the programming, I'll have stuff in the Art Show, and I'll also have a table in the Dealers Room. Pleas

Next weekend is SoonerCon. It's one of our favorite conventions, and this year looks like fun. When isn't it? I hope I never find out. 

I'll have items in the Art Show. Bid early and bid often, either on my items or those by any of the fine artists in attendance.
