Metamor City

The time is almost upon us! Yes, Balticon! And if you’d like to find me at Balticon, here is where you can look. I will be quite busy this year, with 7 panels, plus a reading, a book launch, and an autograph session! I will also be in the Dealer’s room this year, as part of  a co-op of writers. If you don’t find me there, you should be able to find my book, The Perils of Prague. As for the rest of the convention…


Last week I talked about getting back to work on writing the next draft of The Perils of Prague. I’ve made a start on it, but it is still slow going, what with everything else going on in my life. Still, I’m making progress. Moving forward. Unfortunately, now I’ve got to add something else to the mix. I’ve got some voice work commitments, and it is time to get recording again so that I can meet them.


Naturally, nothing is final until we get there, but here is what I’ve been told my schedule for this year’s Balticon is going to look like. Unlike earlier years, the schedule won’t be so heavy, in part because I believe Balticon has more guests this year than they have in the past. I won’t be doing a recording of The Shrinking Man Project for Balticon this year, but I will be doing a few new and interesting things, as well as keeping up with some old favorites.

For part 2 of the Balticon 47 Wrap up, we’re jumping right into the action with a special episode of Metamor City recorded live at Balticon! Regular listeners of Metamor City will have already heard this episode, but for those who have yet to discover Metamor City, this is a taste of the high quality storytelling you will find from Chris Lester and the others who have been able to play in Chris’ world.


In part 1, I talked about some of the wonderful people, both old friends and new friends, who make Balticon such an amazing event for me. In part 2, I went over a couple of the highlights of the first half of the weekend. Now, in Part 3, we’re going to look at the rest of the weekend.


It’s that time of year again, folks. Balticon 47 is almost upon us. And that means that it is time for me to share this year’s Balticon schedule. Now, if you remember my post from last year, you’ll remember that I had a really packed schedule last year. Well, things are looking pretty busy again this year. I don’t think it is quite as bad as last year, but it still looks like a very busy weekend is in store for me.


The Wayback Machine has been down for a while, but it is time for me to fire it back up and mention some of my appearances that either pre-dated this blog, or didn’t get put onto the Master Feed because I was too busy to add them when it all happened. This one is from before I stood up Swimming Cat Studios. We’re going back to November 12th, 2010, when I made my third appearance on the Galley Table Podcast.


Some people fear birthdays. They hide them. They deny them.

Not me.

For me, a birthday is a victory celebration! Another year to stride upon this Earth, win battles, and fight off death for another day.  In the end to plunge my banner into the heart of another year and cry to the heavens that this year will not defeat me! I have taken on all that it had to dish out and I remain standing! Victorious!

But not everyone sees it like that.


This is based on the draft schedule, so it may be subject to change, but as of today, here is where I will be this coming Balticon weekend:
