RevolutionSF, the revolution in science fiction, is proud
to announce the online publication of Mark Finn's novel of twenty-sided dice
and comic books. And pizza. Almost forgot the pizza.
Originally published as "The Secret Life of Lawrence Croft"
in the 2001 collection Gods New and Used from Clockwork Storybook, The
Transformation of Lawrence Croft, or, Three Days of the Con-Dorks is greatly
revised and expanded from its original incarnation.
MagicCon is an ordinary fantasy/science fiction convention.
Three days of comic books, anime, and X-Files jokes, which is exactly
what Larry and his friends are looking for. Unfortunately for Larry, a long-forgotten
Roman god named Stercutus is primed to make a comeback, and this particular
god's sphere of influence really stinks . . ..
"Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, etc.) fans will
enjoy and [it] could well become as much a classic of the convention experience
as has Sharyn McCrumb's Bimbos of the Death Sun."
--Charles de Lint
"It's funny, mean, scary, and very true to life. If you are
a member of fandom, this book is over the top!"
"It is nothing less than Band of Brothers for the con-going
