On the Road Again

Hey, gang – I’m working through my schedule for 2017, and finally updates the Appearances page here at the mothership. There may be some small cons added, here and there.

Who’s ready for Gamehole Con and DORKSTOCK?

OK – the World Series is over, and it’s almost time to start obsessively worrying about the fate of the American Experiment and the death of the Republic again to vote. But somehow, Gamehole Con and DorkStock (a tiny little division of Gamehole Con) have snuck up on us! Gamehole Con has become an absolutely […]

Less is More, More or Less

A couple of days ago, an off-handed Twitter conversation with my pal Ken Hite (I KNOW, RIGHT?) sparked an idea for Thursday’s DORK TOWER. It's a Frankenberry Halloween DORK TOWER TUESDAY!
