Chasing the Dragon

Hey Kids—

I am on my way to the convention in Atlanta that I've been name-dropping for weeks now.

Dragon*Con. Finally.

"Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the US."

I'm joining George Hrab and Slau at the Con and where both of these guys will be working their professional mojo at scheduled events. I know I'll be assisting in some way but I intend to carve out my own Dragon experience. For one thing, I'll be at Scott Sigler's THE ROOKIE Tailgate Tour kickoff on Saturday night and then heading over to the Parsec Awards. Hopefully all my pals will win something, which will be a trick because so many of them are up against one another in a number of categories.

I've promised pictures of goth girls and strange-character mashups, stories of decadent geek behavior and tales from the front lines of the podcasting and skeptic tracks. And I will most definitely make good on all of this, y'all!

And if you search on Flickr, there's a good chance you'll see photos surfacing of all sorts of Dragon*Con activities. With any luck nothing terribly incriminating will come to light. Well, not before I have a chance to contact my attorney.

Stay tuned for the post-Con reportage!
