It’s ArmadilloCon time again: Where I’ll be talking, reading, etc.


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

Special Guest: Tamora Pierce


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.
