I love getting out of the house and meeting fans and friends. I’ll be at the following shows—and maybe some more, but I’ll post those up here as they’re announced. If you wind up at one too, be sure to say hi!



Chicago, IL. April 25–27

I’m appearing on a couple panels at this show with my pal Ken Hite. You can find us at:

Saturday, April 26

Sunday, April 27

Nexus Game Fair

Milwaukee, WI. June 19–22. 

This is a new show but with a lot of familiar faces, including Harold Johnson, Jolly Blackburn, Mike Carr, Chris Clark, Zeb Cook, Jeff Easley, Ernie Gygax, Dave Kenzer, James Lowder, Frank Mentzer, Merle Rasmussen, Jim Ward, and Skip Williams.

Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop

Laramie, WY. July 13–20. 

I’m not appearing at this one so much as attending. This is a great program in which astronomers teach writers hard facts about space in an effort to help us create better hard science fiction tales. I’m honored to be able to join this year’s class.

Gen Con

Indianapolis, IN. August 14–17.

This is my favorite time of year. I’m once again part of the committee selecting the Industry Insider Guests of Honor, and this will mark my 33rd consecutive Gen Con and 12th in a row as a guest of honor. I’ll also take part in the Gen Con Writers Symposium.

If you love games, books, or both, do not miss this show.


Madison, WI. August 22–24.

This is a great local show that focuses on many geeky things. I’ll be there on Saturday, chatting on a number of panels.


Grand Rapids, MI. September 19–21

I had to miss this show’s debut last year, but I’m hitting it double hard this year to make up for it. The people behind in are fantastic, and I’m looking forward to catching up with them and many other great friends.


Odyssey Con

Madison, WI. April 10–12. 

This is a wonderful local SF/F convention with a great gaming track too. I’ll be a guest of honor in 2015, along with Jonathan Maberry and Heather Brewer.
