Armadillocon 2022 takes place this year from August 5 to August 7 at the Austin Southpark Hotel. I’m scheduled for five events, two of which I’m moderating. (Cthulhu help us.)
I’m including my schedule below (and if you don't see me at these, check the bar), and you can find the full schedule here.
Hope to see you there.
