Since we’re now less than a week away from the start of CthulhuCon in Portland, Oregon. Since I’m an active participant I figured it’d be handy for me to post my schedule. All this is penciled in, and meant only as a guide. Stuff can change. However, I’ll try to stick to this as much as I can.
[UPDATE 4/22] – I’m now doing an author signing on 10am in Bellmont B and I’ve also gone ahead and updated my schedule with room information as well.
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm — Hello, Portland!
I’ll arrive Friday afternoon and I’ll be around. There’s a party that night, but the con really doesn’t kick off until the following morning. But, if you see me, stop me and say hello!
10:00 am – 7:00 pm — Hanging out in The Mall of Cthulhu [Bellmont C]
I’ll be in the Dealers Room, selling and signing books all day. The dealers room isn’t large, so look for my big black banner. I’ll have copies of The Stars Were Right and Old Broken Road, as well as a ton of free swag.
Along side me you’ll find a lot of other awesome folks selling their wares. You can see the full vendor list here →
8:00 pm – 9:00 pm — Author Reading 3 [Foyer]
I’ll be joining fellow authors Jim Smiley and Christine Morgan in the Foyer reading an excerpt from The Bell Forging Cycle, Book I: The Stars Were Right.
10:00 am – 10:45 am — Author Signing [Bellmont B]
Me and the fourteen other authors attending the convention are going to be hanging out in Bellmont B signing our books.
11:00 am – 12:00 pm — Creating A Mythos Panel [Bellmont B]
Join me and names like: Leslie S. Klinger, Ross E. Lockhart, Wilum H. Pugmire, Justin Steele, and Sean Hoade as we discuss the pluses and minuses of working within a mythos. Full description below:
“One of the mainstays of Lovecraft’s legacy has long been the Mythos he created. Many authors, both before and after Lovecraft, have created a Mythos of their own: Pugmire’s Sesqua Valley, Chambers’s King in Yellow stories, Barron’s Old Leech universe, Dunsany’s Pegana, Clark Ashton Smith’s Hyperborea. Some have outgrown their creators and have opened their doors to many authors to contribute. What is the allure of a Mythos? What are the benefits of writing in one? What are the pitfalls?”
12:00 pm – 4:00 pm — Hanging out in The Mall of Cthulhu [Bellmont C]
After the panel I’ll be found back by my table in the Dealers Room until the end of the convention at 4:00pm.
So there’s my schedule. This weekend my lovely wife, Kari-Lise, will be joining me, so anytime I’m not in the dealer room she’ll be at my table.
Really looking forward to meeting folks and discussing Lovecraft, Mythos, the Territories, weird fiction, and anything else that comes up! I can’t wait, see you at the convention!
