TusCon 49   Leave a comment

I will be participating in TusCon 49, this year’s rendition of “The Best Little Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Convention in Arizona.” The event will be held November 11th – 13th, 2022. 

I will be there most of the three days, but the best day to catch up with me will be Saturday, November 12, when all of the convention programming I’m involved with will be held:

Reading: Where a Demon Hides

Saturday – Panel Room 2, 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

I will give a reading of the first chapter of my newest novel, Where a Demon Hides: War of the Second Iteration – Coda, and maybe a short story or two – time permitting.

Panel Discussion: Killing Off Characters

Saturday – Ballroom, 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Some authors love to do it. Some authors hate to do it. But you have to do it. Characters must die. But why? And how do you do it well? Panelists include Carolyn Kay, Jeffrey J. Mariotte, Jennifer Roberson, Marsheila Rockwell, Marty Ketola, and yours truly.

Autograph Session

Saturday – Autograph Area, 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

I’ll be with fellow authors Cameron D. Blackwell, Kristyn Merbeth, and Mona Ventress, available to sign books and meet readers in a casual setting.

What’s Up over TusCon

Saturday – In the central courtyard, near the pool, 8:00 pm 9:00 pm.

Once again there will be telescopes set up for your viewing pleasure. Jupiter promises to provide an especially good show, this year, and the Pleiades will be rising. (This event contingent on clear skies.)

Where a Demon Hides: War of the Second Iteration – Coda

The war is over and Humanity has prevailed, but victory came at a terrible price. The weapon used to bring down the enemy killed or injured as many people as it saved. One of the unintended casualties, Alicia MacGregor, has existed in a medically induced coma for two years while her neurological injuries were repaired.

At last, to the relief of family and friends, the time has come for her to awaken and rejoin the world. She is healed physically, but the trauma she endured in that final battle left deep scars in her heart and mind. As she copes with the burden of horror and grief left by the war, Alicia discovers that she is haunted by something far worse than bad memories. Something that first threatens her sanity, and then her life.
