Malcon 1

 It’s been a good year for first-run conventions. Malcon 1 in Denver was last weekend. This con is a catch-all for the oddball geekdom fans that don’t have their own dedicated event (with the exception of Whovians.) So, for a weekend, the Sheraton at the Denver Tech Center was home to fans from Doctor Who, […]

Archon St Louis

 Unfortunately, it looks like I will not be going to Archon St Louis. I was looking forward to driving out there, but after a long hard look at the return on the investment, it didn’t make economical sense to make the trip this year. Since I’ve heard good things about Archon, hopefully I will be […]

Compensating the Entertainment

 Something that has come up often concerns panelists at conventions. Many conventions require panelists to pay full price to get into the con. Most of the ones I attend grant the panelist at least one, but sometimes two, tickets to the show. Of course, this is assuming the panelist will be on a set number […]

Back from WHC New Orleans

 We’re back from the World Horror Convention (WHC), this year held in the hot and muggy city of New Orleans. Tonya and I enjoyed our trip, but we had to leave a day early due to an event at the Thornton Barnes & Noble. One of the things we did was venture out on a […]

COSine Convention Conclusion

 Here we are, the final day of COSine. I say that knowing this may actually be the very last COSine Convention in Colorado Springs, at least as run by the First Friday Fandom group. Brings a sense of melancholy as I head into the last day. The panel schedule is light today, with only one on my […]

COSine Day 1

 The panels are done for the first day of COSine, a science fiction convention in Colorado Springs, CO. Before my panel, I stopped in on several panel discussions and a reading by David Boop. Today’s panel was “What Works and What Sells”, moderated by Sarah Hoyt. David Boop and Sam Knight joined me in a […]
