Updates on where you can meet, greet, and buy Howard Waldrop a beer this year. The man says these are the only places he’s going this year. (We had it wrong before, sorry.) Our Peapod edition of Howard Who? won’t be out until the second of these convention things:
May 26-28 — Conquest, Kansas City, Missouri
August 11-13 — Armadillocon, Austin, TX
November 2-5 — World Fantasy Con in Austin, TX
Note that two of these conventions are in Austin (look out for a reading there, too). Howard is an iconoclast who has always lived only on his income from his fiction. And, for the most part, he’s a short story writer. As you can imagine, his travel budget isn’t great. Buy that man a beer, make him write some more.
