Life Happens Dept. (2013/08/28 03:00)
Sorry, no AnimeFest this year. "Flight of the Vajra" will come out, though.

2010


Touching the Earth Once More Dept. (2010/10/10 10:10)
Back from New York Anime Comic Con Fest Mashup Thing Event. Impressions: They might have been better off just formally abandoning any "Anime Fest" description and just slotted in anime-themed programming generally. The end result here was that the anime...

After AnimeFest Dept. (2010/09/07 07:29)
The short version: a very good time was had by all. Sales were a little lighter than what I expected, but I also donated copies of my books to the Mu Epsilon Kappa Society for one of their events. Ditto...

A Poke In The Eye Dept. (2010/08/07 07:38)
And with everything else that was going on, I forgot to post a couple of choice snaps from the show....

Get Backers Dept. (2010/08/03 08:15)
Or, I Survived Otakon And I Got A Lot More Than A Lousy T-Shirt. Every show's a fun show if you bring the right things to it. I brought myself, my friend Dan, a sense of humor, bottled water, meal...

Ketchup and Mustard Dept. (2010/07/26 05:57)
Time for me to play catch-up once again, I think. The Really Cool Thing I Can't Talk About Just Yet took another incremental step forward at the end of the week. I suspect I'll have some kind of answer about...

Dead Line Dept. (2010/07/10 11:42)
Last night I came to one of those conclusions I never like to come to, but which are like a gate which walls off progress: if you don't go through the gate, you never get to the next level. It...

Et. Al. Dept. (2010/06/29 11:48)
I still can't talk publicly about the Potentially Great Thing that may or may not be happening -- both because I'm not sure I can, and because I'm kinda anxious about jinxing a good thing. All I'll say s that...

Bookish Dept. (2010/06/21 10:40)
First, a note about my revised convention schedule: Otakon (end of July) AnimeFest (beginning of September) NYAF (October) MangaNext (end of October) MangaNext is of course the sister convention to AnimeNext, and the more I hear about it the more...

Homerun Dept. (2010/06/20 10:52)
AnimeNext 2010 was a great success. I sold out all but two copies of the books in stock, met some great new friends, saw some also-great existing ones (you know who you are!) ... all around, a terrific show. Even...

Paradigm Shift Dept. (2010/06/12 10:53)
I've spent the last few days running a fever and coughing my eyes out, so I haven't had much of a chance to post anything. Now that the cough has leveled out a bit and I'm no longer feeling like...

Road Trippin' Dept. (2010/05/06 11:49)
After some date-wrangling, number-crunching and budget-scrunching, it looks like I have my convention schedule for the rest of the year. I'm going to be busier than I thought. AnimeNext (June 18-20, central NJ). Otakon (July 30-August 1, Baltimore, MD). AnimeFest!...

The Way We Roll Dept. (2010/03/04 04:28)
Dave Winer, one of the "protobloggers" (I suspect he hates that term), provides an intriguing way to do a panel that isn't a panel. Renewed Evangelism: BloggerCon Format. (Scripting News) The format is not far from the Socratic classroom, a...

Trust But Verify Dept. (2010/02/26 11:33)
Jim Hines has linked to a rather grim story about a woman who was sexually assaulted by someone she met at a convention. The response she gave (and the support she's received) are heartening, and I'm hoping she'll be able...

2009


Disappearing Act Dept. (2009/09/28 12:20)
My NYAF report is up at AMN -- and it's the last piece I'm doing for them of that size. After this the only things I'll be writing for them are reviews of material that I was already covering (like...

AnimeFest 2009, The Rest Of The Story (2009/09/09 10:03)
On the plus side ... Being screwed out of a table (my fault, really) only slowed me down a little bit. Things got significantly better after Ronni Katz, the fine lady who was my table-neighbor last year, showed up. She...

AnimeFest 2009, Day 0 (2009/09/09 09:51)
<bitching> The general tone for my flight out to Dallas was set when I struggled into the restroom at the tail of the plane and tried to get Business Done, only to be interrupted by someone jiggling the door handle....

What Happens In Texas Dept. (2009/08/30 08:16)
Tokyo Inferno and all the other books are on their way to Dallas right now, way ahead of me getting there. I'd actually taken a bit of a gamble by doing this; some part of me wanted to have the...

Out The Door (2009/08/25 12:26)
And so Tokyo Inferno is done and off to the printer's. At last! I won't be making the book available from the website just yet -- I want to get all that settled after I get back from AnimeFest...

Otakked Dept. (2009/07/22 11:07)
I'll be back at Otakon next year, but I suspect I might not be going as press. Instead, I may well go as Press -- Genji Press, to be precise. I've been musing this over for a while now, and...

Take A Look Dept. (2009/07/21 10:51)
Full Otakon 2009 photo gallery is now live.Look fast for the Shamwow Guy cosplayer....

Landfall Dept. (2009/07/20 11:58)
I'm back from Otakon '09 and getting caught up with everything. This may take as much as two days. I've got some coverage of the show up already, with more to come. There's a roundtable discussion with Mary Elizabeth McGlynn...

Home Turf Dept. (2009/06/15 12:56)
Oh, and I'm back from AnimeNext! (Photos here.)For all of those who came by my table and bought Summerworld and Four-Day Weekend: Thank you. I hope you enjoy both of them immensely. I'll be back next year with more books...

Con Surprise Dept. (2009/05/26 08:18)
I hadn't planned on this at all, but it looks like I'll be going to Anime Next in June. What's more, I'm going there as a vendor.You got that right: I'll be in the artist's alley, selling everything you see...

WickedFaire, &c. (2009/02/17 11:16)
A reminder: I'm going to be at WickedFaire this coming weekend, with books for sale and at least one panel discussion appearance. Everything I have will be available signed at the cover price ($12), as opposed to the $20 I...
