2015 NecronomiCon Providence

NecronomiCon 2015 is this upcoming weekend in Providence, RI. 2013's NecronomiCon ranks among my favorite convention experiences to date and so -- despite the rather hectic nature of life post-fatherhood -- I am pleased to say I will once more be in attendance as a guest.

My schedule for the weekend is shown below. Apart from the events below you can probably find me in the dealer room, round the gaming tables, or at the hotel bar. Very much looking forward to catching up with auld acquaintance and to making many new friends as well.

Also: be sure and keep an eye out for The Doom that Came to Providence, a limited edition booklet which will be available only at the convention and includes my 1,000-word short-short “The Breaking.”
