Armadillocon 39 will take place at the Omni Southpark Hotel in Austin, Texas on August 4-6, 2017. Along with such writers as Christopher Brown, Nicky Drayden, Stina Leicht, and Rick Klaw, I will be on several panels covering various aspects of genre, especially horror fiction (which seems apt when you consider that I seem to be writing quite a bit of it these days), as well as a reading and a signing. You can review the entire schedule here, and can find me at the following events.
Hope to see you there.
