Land o' the Flea, Home o' the Plague

flames
So... I have already posted my schedule for the worldcon in Chicago (see below), but I neglected to mention that the next con on my schedule is actually our hometown convention, Bubonicon, down the road in Albuquerque, New Mexico. (Land o' the Flea and Home o' the Plague, as con mascot Perry Rodent will be glad to tell you).

I will be at that one too. My schedule:

FRIDAY AUG 24

8:30 pm - READING (I will probably read from THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE) Acoma
10:30 pm - CHARITY AUCTION (will be donating various signed books and collectibles)

SATURDAY AUG 25

1:00 pm - HOLLYWOOD TALES panel w/ SNodgrass & Cassutt Salon E
5:30 pm - MASS SIGNING (all the writers at the con, defacing books)

SUNDAY AUG 26

12:15 noon - SIGNING (me and Brandon Sanderson, defacing books)

Of course, I will be hanging around the bar and cruising the parties as well.

Same rules as worldcon: always glad to meet you and converse, but I will sign stuff only at the designated signings on Saturday and Sunday. Thanks for understanding.

Bubonicon only draws about a tenth as many people as worldcon, so if you're in driving distance of Albuquerque, there's no better place to hang with your favorite writers and fellow fen. A link with all the necessary info can be found on my Appearances page.

See you there.

You AND Brandon Sanderson on the 26th?! Wow,I want to go to Chicago!
I'm curious if you've read 'Way of Kings' by him, and what your thoughts on it are.

I have yet to make it out to bubonicon but it has never been far from my house.
Would also love to know which bars I could buy GRRM a drink at!

Maybe you can make a guest appearance on "Breaking Bad" while you are there...

I just got back from a business trip to Albuquerque and noticed the Bubonicon on your website before I left. Too bad, couldn't schedule the trip near that weekend or I would have. I enjoyed the hot air balloons on the horizon from my hotel balcony this morning....good luck and have a great conference.

If I can make it to WorldCon, I will. It sounds like fun. Getting your autograph would be pretty cool too! :-)
