The Terrible Tome

An imaginary game world from an imaginary game.

FOG-Con 2014

Ah, one of my infamous travelogues/con reports. It’s been a little while. FOG-Con 2014 I’m still pretty new at science fiction/fantasy shows (as opposed to comic shows, which were old hat for me in 1990 and 2008 as an exhibitor). Still getting used to things. Still figuring out how to talk to other humans without […]

FOG-Con/Orinda/High Scores Arcade Museum

Spent last weekend at FOG-Con in Walnut Creek. Show went well. More details later, just getting this up now to remind me that I need to say something about it. Spent a lot of off-time taking pictures around Orinda, Alameda and in San Francisco. Got to drive though the Caldecott Tunnel a couple of times, […]

Convolution 2013

Convolution 2013 went well, though I took almost no photographs worth keeping thanks to the low light. The blurring went all wrong. Sometimes it just doesn’t come together. Though the show did pretty well. Okay, a couple hiccups, but those were dealt with in the best way possible. Solid programming and a laid-back vibe (which […]

Convolution 2013

In addition to folks like Brian and Wendy Froud and Richard and Wendy Pini and Richard Kadrey, the fine folks over at Convolution SF have extended an invitation for yours truly to appear as a guest of the show and do some panels/programming. I’ll try not to mess it up too badly, but I’m kinda […]

RAGNAROK SUMMER free up at the Kindle store.

Hey folks. Just a head’s up that my first novel, RAGNAROK SUMMER is up for free over at the Kindle store. That’s a full novel for nothing. Maybe you’d like to read it and review it.
