Dragon My Con Around

This seemed like a much better idea before I thought about it, and better yet before I started to live it, but my third convention in three weeks is upon me! Yes, it's DragonCon (no asterisk! Ask for it by newly unpunctuated name!) and I'll be guesting in the Gaming and Horror tracks. I'm looking forward to seeing the show, which I haven't attended since we came out to Hotlanta in the '90s to drink with the Wolfies and sell Star Trek RPG books but mostly drink with the Wolfies.

But now there is no Star Trek RPG and barely any Wolfies, so I shall have to see what else my people get up to (and in what getup they get up to it) on Labor Day weekend in Atlanta. And with the schedule finally finalized, and me back in Chicago for a day or three, I can now realize my lifelong (well, monthlong) dream of posting my DragonCon schedule.
