It hasn’t rained in forever, the mercury is hitting triple digits, and we’re just passed the halfway point of the baseball season. It must be time for ArmadilloCon once again!
This year’s con, the 39th such affair, takes place this coming weekend, August 4-6.
Guest of Honor: Nisi Shawl
Toastmaster: Don Webb
Fan Guest: A.T. Campbell, III
Artist Guest: Mark A. Nelson
Editor Guest: Trevor Quachri

As I have for roughly the past 25 years or so, I’ll be in attendance and because apparently the con organizers have learned nothing, I’ll be sitting in on several panels.
