Chris Marrs and I recently got back from Necon, which was a fantastic experience. Wonderful to reconnect with friends like John Dixon, Matt Schwartz, Megan Hart, Rena Mason, Patrick Freivald, Rob E. Boley, Stephanie M. Wytovich, Hal Bodner and many others. Also enjoyed making new friends like Lynne Hansen, Chris Irvin, Douglas Wynne, Bracken MacLeod, Tony Tremblay and more. Kudos to the people who put the con together, it’s a real labor of love.
One of the highlights for me was participating in the apocalyptic panel featuring (left to right in the below photo) me, Lynne Hansen, Douglas Wynne, Mark Morris, James A. Moore and Joe Hill.
Also bought a wicked set of hardcover Robert E. Howard books in the dealer’s room; I plan to revisit this author who inspired me to write fiction when I was a kid.
