This year was my first time attending my local fandom convention, Fandemonium (in Nampa).
I had a great time cross-pitching books with Carter Reid, Michaelbrent Collings, and Holand Peterson. I sold a few of my own too, and gave out CDs and flyers for ebooks. Sat on panels about Humor in Horror and Self-publishing with Michaelbrent, Carter, and A.J. O’Connell. Bear Putnam and I took turns at the mic in a nearly impromptu filk concert, which was fun and (probably much-needed) practice.
Overall impression: this con is way more about costumes and loud dance beats and videogames than books. Still, it was fun, and there was a literature component, and it’s my local con, so I expect I’ll be there again next year. Especially if we can get UFO to show up.
