My Dragon*Con Schedule

Here are the things I’ll be doing at the upcoming Dragon*Con convention. I’m trying to get things together and have created Facebook events for them. I’m doing one live taping of Reality Break and then two of the three other panels are ones I suggested and am moderating. That’s a little heavier responsibility load in […]

My Projects and Action Items from Balticon

I walked away from Balticon in May with a list of things to do. I had three primary ideas/ action items. I’ll lay them out as ideas. Anyone that wants to take these ideas and run with them, go for it. I’d much rather see them exist in the world than be a Dave ™ […]

New Reality Break Episode featuring Tobias S. Buckell

I’ve recently published the most recent episode of the Reality Break Podcast, and this one is an interview I particularly liked, my chat with hard science fiction author Tobias S. Buckell. We sat down in a bar in a noisy hotel lobby at Dragon*Con and it actually sounds pretty decent. I’ve certainly gotten much worse […]

Dragon*Con Wrapup Part 1

Here’s my wrapup of this year’s trip to Dragon*Con. This is probably about the latest I can do it and have my friend brain cells intact enough to remember things. It might should go without saying that there is a looooong post warning, but I’ll try to spice it up with enough pictures to keep […]

Dragon*Con Wrapup Coming

I really need to do a big wrapup of my Dragon*Con experience really soon, or else I’ll start forgetting details. I had much fun this year, my first since 2002, and would like to capture some of that in a permanent form on here. I plan on making a big linky, photo-riddled post but that […]

Top Shelf Comix

I don’t remember seeing their booth but surely Top Shelf Comix was displaying at Dragon*Con. One of the principals lives in Marietta, so it seems ridiculous not to. It’s that time of the year when Top Shelf has their big blowout sale, and are selling a number of their graphic novels at discounts and 97 […]

Dragon*Con, Collapsing to the Finish Line

It’s been quiet on this blog. Too quiet. I’m almost done with Dragon*Con. It’s been good and worth the trip. I’m too tired to write up a real report but trust me, it’s been good. The status is not quo. Also on:

Off To Dragon*Con

Convention Season

I’m thinking a lot about conventions lately. This is the first year where not only am I not going to Podcast Expo but I never for a second even considered going. I was scheduled to speak last year but when it came down not only was my day job so crushing at the time but […]

Dragon*Con 2006 Photos

Friend of a friend Patman (a buddy of my friend Rob) has been posting his photos from Dragon*Con for years, and this year is no exception. Dang, I wish I had been able to accept Swoopy’s kind invitation and gone this year. Also on:

Pros and Cons

I’ve had to decline a heartbreaking number of invitations to come to conventions and/or conferences this year. In several cases, I was invited to speak or lead sessions and I just couldn’t do it. Being in a job situation without vacation contributed a lot, where I would have to not only pay my way plus […]
