So, I just got a new desktop computer, twice as fast and half the size of my last one. Which meant I had to once again bookmark all my favorite sites, not to mention trying to remember all those different passwords! Whew. So this is just a test post to make sure everything is working. Real, actual posts may follow. But, while I’m here, I might as well show off that brand now, spiffy cover one more time.
And I will be there on Saturday! The mysteries of Arisia are many, and while I volunteered to appear on a great number of panels, they only saw fit to give me one.It’s about current comic book marketing, and what’s up with Marvel and DC these days. I believe it starts at 4:20.
I may have nixed my appearance on other panels when I gently chided the programmers on the Extreme Political Correctness of many of their offerings (especially in topics relating to film and TV). Considering the possibility of having an opposing view, I was obviously not Proper Panel Material. They didn’t put me on anything to do with writing, or fantasy, or funny stuff. I do have a comic book connection, having managed a comic book store (where I still work on occasion) as well as writing three books having something to do with Batman.
But hey, I get to wander the art show and the dealer’s room, and to reacquaint myself with a few folks I see mostly at cons. I’m looking forward to having a good time. And I’ll have a copy or two of my new book, TEMPORARY MONSTERS, for all to see.
So I hope to see some of you this Saturday, or a month from now at Boskone (Where I will be on a whole bunch of panels!))
