March 29-30, 2014
Coppell, TX (near Dallas)
The T.A.B.L.E. Kickstarter project succeeded, with more than 120% support. So I'll be a guest there. They even hit stretch goals that will give the supporters a neat mini of a lady zombie-hunter, and a free SJ Games game from a wide selection. This is a special-format event, put on by Tiffany Franzoni and her Roll2Play troupe. Their objective . . . to get gamers and non-gamers sitting down together and talking and playing games. I'm for that.
November 20-24, 2013
Always an amazing event, though I don't yet know which days I will be there! I'm sort of hoping to drive my shiny black Tesla from Austin to Dallas.
Ogre will be played, and I look forward to learning some new games, too.
October 19-20, 2013
Ogre Launch Party
Tickets are sold out, and there will NOT be at-the-door admissions, so, forgive me: If you have a ticket, you know what to do, and if not, you can't get in fnord. I know, I am sooooooo mean.
October 4-6, 2013
With my other geek hat on, I went to play with LEGO trains at the Galveston Railroad Museum. I did give out a few "Adventure Time" bookmarks to the lucky people who knew what they were.

August 29-September 2, 2013
San Antonio, Texas
This was apparently a big con with a lot going on. I say "apparently," because I spent almost all of my time at the Chaos Machine . . . which went over very well. That was not . . . actually . . . my plan. But that was how it worked out. I only got to one program item besides my own, and that was a Leslie Fish concert. Wasn't going to miss that, no matter what!
It turned out that the game area was right next to the Machine, so at least I got to move back and forth some. Al Griego and the MIBs ran a lot of Munchkin and Zombie Dice, and showed off the production copy of Ogre. MTV Geek interviewed me; a link will be posted when it's up.
I moderated a panel on the Vorkosigan universe, with Lois in the audience. No pressure, folks!
A Hugo Award that made me particularly happy this year was the Best Related Work, which went to Writing Excuses, a podcast by Brandon Sanderson, Mary Robinette Kowal, Dan Wells, and my friend Howard Tayler. This is a fun, useful program that gives back to the community by helping us write better, and I'm very glad it was honored.
And I can unconditionally recommend the Texas de Brazil restaurant in downtown San Antonio to my fellow carnivores.
