Balticon, Suave Rob, Crudrat, and Free Will

Contrary to rumors that have been floating around, I did not, in fact, get swallowed by a giant monster crab under the streets of Baltimore at Balticon. I did, however, have a brilliant time, and the summer has flown by so fast and so packed that I haven’t even posted… Continue reading

Gail Carriger’s Crudrat!

I’ve lucked into the rare opportunity to produce the full-cast audiobook of Gail Carriger’s science fiction debut. Danny Schade is on board, as is a lot of the regular crew, and we’ve got big plans for this little book. It’s a splendid book, too. You can read an interview with… Continue reading

The Balticon Adventure pt 4
