New Interview

Monday, September 26, 2011

Back from Rochester!

A new con up there, fairly well attended, though eclectic in its mix of vendors, guests, and visitors, so very hit and miss on whether any particular customer who walked up might actually be interested in my kind of books (or books at all, for that matter).

Met the fabulous and friendly voice actor Eileen Stevens, who ably acted as navigator to the armory (one big weird building - I mean, it was HUGE and Medieval looking).

Lots of kids in cosplay, which I don't usually see so much of at the cons I usually go to.

Had fantastic SE Asian food again at Jasmine's Asian Fusion (right next to the hotel).

But, home now and recovering!

Back from Horror Realm

These whirlwind tours are wearing me out. Way too much driving.

But in between - a great trip and con.

Started with a visit to my colleague Dr. Eric Plumer of the University of Scranton. That included our usual visit to the magic that is Coopers - an incredible seafood restaurant in a most unlikely place.

At the con itself, had a nice visit with Dr. Pus and his fellow Twisted Librarians!

Melanie Stone, along with Josh Masters and Alyssa Ruggiero of Still Breathing Productions stopped by and were very kind and generous in expressing their appreciation of my work.

Back from HorrorFind

And another year for good attendance at the con! Sold a lot of books - some to new fans, who bought the first D2L, and a lot to returning fans, who picked up D2L2 or D2L3. Thanks to you all!

Thanks to Brian Keene for organizing the author activities.

I hung out with the newly returned Kyle Johnson and Doug Warrick - welcome back!

We can now file "Gettysburg" (along with "Reno" from my last trip) in the file of "Unexpected Places to Have Excellent SE Asian Food." Reno had lots of Vietnamese restaurants and the one we tried was great; Gettysburg only had one Thai restaurant downtown, but it was the best Thai I've had in a long time.

Tony Tribby of Dead Bat Designs was also there. We went to middle school together way back at Seneca Ridge.
