GenCon at the End of the Tunnel

Some delightful scamp has moved GenCon up by a week or two again, oh hilarity! The good news is that leaves my schedule for the Noir City Chicago Film Fest free and clear this year. The bad news is that it leaves me just a weensy bit slammed, explaining the late nature of this, my annual Ken's GenCon Schedule Post.

As always, nobody in their right mind tells me if anything at all ever is being recorded, streamed, or laboriously chiseled into cuneiform for the delectation of Innanna. Except my podcast, I'm pretty sure Robin's recording that one. So herewith, said Schedule Post!

Apart from those brilliant moments in time, if you seek me, seek me out at the old familiar Pelgrane Press stand, located at Booth #1317, or in a bar. I'm always happy to sign books or say "Hi" or just nod briskly as we pass each other in a ginormous crowd of people on their way to play elf games.
