Welcome! This is my personal blog, where I chat about whatever takes my fancy, reminisce about comics, Old Time Radio, and science-fiction fandoms, review what I feel like reviewing, and so on. It also archives scans of some of the fanzines with which I've been involved.

MadCon 2010 Will Feature Harlan Ellison in Madison in September

Will you be there? I sure as heck plan to be. Details: September 24-26 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 4402 East Washington Avenue, Madison, WI 53704. It's (800) 404-7630 and ask for the MadCon 2010 room block for "best rates." How do I know? Because kindly Jon Manzo handed me a sheaf of flyers for the convention, when I couldn't locate the pad I'd brought to take notes on at the Gaiman v. McFarlane hearing.

Harlan is saying this will probably be his last convention appearance, and he's not even the only draw! Confirmed guests include (always subject to professional commitments, gang; that's a basic for today's media folks; they need to work to eat): Sophie Aldred ("Ace" from Doctor Who), Gene Wolfe, Peter David, Pat Rothfuss, Allen Steele, editor Jim Frenkel, The Onion's John Krewson, and Peri Charlifu. Tickets at the moment (and, yes, I've already missed the discounted early membership, doggone it) are $65. And you'll find more at the MadCon website. Don't say I didn't tell you.

Hi Maggie: I will be at MadCon with a dealer's table for White Hawk Press. I am really looking forward to Harlan's appearance (be it final or not) having met him on two previous occasions with amusing results both times. Stop by and see me.

A month away, and no programming on website. Presumably other things are going on besides Harlan Ellison.
