It's Convention Season!

I'll be attending two conventions, two weeks in a row!

First up is PulpFest 2018 / FarmerCon 100, held in Mars/Cranberry, PA, July 26-29, 2018. Not only am I an attendee, I'm also a FarmerCon organizer. And I'll be attending as a dealer, working at the Meteor House table as well as selling my own, non-Meteor House books.
