Heading Back to Baltimore!

In just over eleven days, Dan & I will be making the trek back down the east coast to Baltimore Comic-con.  And Matt Constantine, the Omega Dork, will be joining us at our table.  We'll have more books to sell, free bookmarks for the taking, and will be offering attendees the opportunity to find out what their "Sci-Fi Name" is (more on that in a post later this week).

Baltimore is a great show--Dan and I, along with a few others, attended this show, for the first time, in 2003, and had a great time meeting artists and writers (in spite of the fact Baltimore had been devastated by a hurricane only days prior).  And when we returned to the show a couple of years back, it engendered a couple of my favorite convention moments (one of those is number 4 on this list).

Focused on comic books, this show always has a fantastic list of creators on hand, and this year is no different.  If you're going to be in the area, you should check it out, and look for us, WARRIOR 27, in the program.  Also, I'll be throwing up a map with our location in a day or two, as well, just to make things easier.

First byline, an interview with Scott Morse

Those who know me, know that Scott Morse is one of my favorite creators -- both his art and his writing are lyrical and emotionally engaging; there isn't a book of his I haven't enjoyed, and many of them are classics, to my mind.  

So, when we read his book, "The Barefoot Serpent," for the graphic novel book club I used to be a part of (in the local Borders bookstores....that tells you how far back this goes), I took the opportunity to email Morse, cold, and ask him a few questions.  And he was gracious enough to answer.  The short Q&A added to our discussion that night, and Morse also asked if he could include it on the first version of his website, which is still lurking on the interwebs, if you know where to look.  

It was  a great thrill to see my name up there on Morse's site.  It was the first "byline" I had.  And it is one of the major landmarks, for me, in my writing journey.  If you hit the link, I hope you enjoy what you find there.  It's short, but informative.  And if you haven't yet read Morse's Barefoot Serpent, what the heck's wrong with you?  Go out and find it and read it.  It's great!
