Midsouth Con Time

Once again, I'm off to Memphis and Midsouth SFF Convention ( to discuss my craft with fans and other tradesmen. By all means, come and visit if you're in the area and watch me not win the Daryl award (again). The convention runs Friday to Sunday, March 23-25 and also has really good and interesting authors to meet as well as yours truly.

One of the interesting things going on this year, for me, is that I'm scheduled to be on a panel about werewolves. This is going to be a bit of a challenge since, as a few of you know, I've been working on a non-fiction book on werewolves and gathering data for a few years now. My goal on the panel is to keep my fat mouth shut and let other people talk. We'll see how it goes. Related to this, if I can find the time, I'm going to be putting up a series of posts covering the main points of my own observations on the werewolf trope and getting your feedback before I proceed on with the project. So look for much werewolf discussion here soon (I hope).

The story is definitely worth looking at, the magazine is great and well produced, and as an added bonus, you can come to MidSouth Con in Memphis in a few weeks, buy the magazine there, and get both myself and the editor to sign it. What could be better?
