On the Road Again

This is just a quick note to remind all and sundry that your humble blogger will be one of the Guests of Honor over July 4th weekend at the wonderful CONvergence to be held just outside of Minneapolis from the 3rd to the 6th. I'll be joined there by such stalwarts as Swamp Thing co-creator Bernie Wrightson, the incomparable Marv Wolfman, Groo the Wanderer and Garfield's own Mark Evanier, Gargoyles creator Greg Weisman, noted Science Fiction authors David Weber, Mercedes Lackey, Larry Dixon and Eric Flint, as well as Ain't It Cool News?'s own Harry Knowles, among many others.

Having had the enormous honor and extraordinary good luck to have been a guest at CONvergence back in 2005, I can tell you without hesitation that it is by far one of the best times I've ever had a convention since I helped to throw the very first New York ComiCon way back in the early Jurassic era. So, if you're in the area over the weekend and have any books you want signed or just feel like saying howdy, drop on by.

For more information, just check out this link. Who says this isn't a full-service blog?

It'll be great to have you back at CONvergence. When you attended in 2005, I had the great pleasure of getting your autograph on your "Walk the Plank" in Grimm's Ghost Stories #9 (I believe you signed it "with apologies"), along with a few issues of Mod Wheels.

I'd like to reiterate what you said about what a great time CONvergence is. It may be the most fun a person could ever have at a convention (and what other con provides everyone with all the snack food and soda they can consume for free, rather than charging outrageous prices for it?)!
