RoberCon

I'm really pumped to have been invited as a guest to Binghamton's first ever Con, RoberCon, which will be held at the Roberson Museum and Science Center. The birthplace and hometown of Rod Serling (creator of The Twilight Zone) deserves a spec-fic Con, and it's great to see one finally born. 

It's only a one-day event this year, but talk has already begun of expanding it and it's scope to also include horror next year, hence the invite of yours truly. I'll be on two panels: "From Star Wars to Superheroes: Myth in Storytelling" at 12:00 and "The Changing Face of Publishing" at 2:00. Also, I'll be signing advance copies of my collection Things Slip Through  throughout the day, so any local folks, I'd love to see you there. 

The biggest event of the day, honestly, will be guest of honor Anne Serling's Q & A and her reading from As I Knew Him, My Dad, Rod Serling. You can be sure that when I'm not at my panels, I'll be there, snagging a copy of her book, too.

Here's hoping that this Con will grow and thrive in the years to come.
