Weyrfest Rules!

Weyrfest Rules!

I mentioned talking with Wil Wheaton earlier. When I spoke with him, I asked how bad the fans were this year — expecting the usual horror stories (there was the year some idiots heckled James Marsters because they wanted him to take off his shirt, for example). And he said, quite defensively I felt, that the fans were really quite nice and understanding this year.

It was only when I got home to facebook that I noticed that among his fans were Loren Armitage, Charlotte Moore, the amazing “H” (“Bed! I am IN you!”) and more. No wonder he felt well-treated by his fans.

Now if only we could figure out a way to get him down to Werewolf one night! (Apparently he’s a pretty die-hard gamer and for some reason he doesn’t appear on any gaming panels!)



Some of you at Dragon*con were asking where could you get the prequel to the short story I read.

You can get “Tree” in Writers for Relief, Vol. 2: An Anthology to Benefit the Bay Area Food Bank

The story I read, “The One Tree of Luna”, has been submitted for publication in Volume 3 which will benefit the survivors of the Japanese earthquake (more deatils when I have them).

Todd’s recipe for killing “Con Crud”

Todd’s recipe for killing “Con Crud”

First, try not to get it. This involves packing and drinking lots of “Emergen-C” (Airborne doesn’t work as well). I recommend Emergen-C for any time when you’re in a high-stress, high-demand situation. The stuff works wonders.

Foolish me, however, I forgot to pack and didn’t find any at the con.

If you get con crud, this is what works for me:

  1. Lots of Rest
  2. Lots of Emergen-C
  3. Lots of Water
  4. Chicken Noodle Soup
  5. Vicks Vapor Rub on your chest
  6. NEVER drink hot or cold liquids, stick with room temperature if possible, otherwise go with warm or cool
  7. I’ve also had luck with small amounts of colloidal silver on the reasoning that bacteria are less likely to like it than my cells.
When the Villain Returns

When the Villain Returns

Straight off of their success with When the Hero Comes Home, I was asked to consider writing a new story for their forthcoming anthology, When the Villain Returns.

I’m proud to say that they’ve accepted Robin Redbreast for publication!
