If you’re going to be in the St. Louis area, I’ll be at Archon in a couple of weeks.  Archon is the Midwest’s Premier Science Fiction and Fantasy Event.  Last year was my first year, but I had such a great time that I immediately signed up to come back.  I’ll be on a number panels, mostly around the business of writing, but if you’d like to talk about the Hundred Halls, or would like an autograph, please feel free to look me up after a panel or in the hallways.
