Next weekend, Austin, Texas sees ArmadilloCon 26 - and Golden Gryphon Press will be there.
Marty over at Golden Gryphon Press dropped us a note to let you know he's got a table in the dealers room at ArmadilloCon in Austin, Texas, this coming weekend (August 13th to 15th).
So if you just happen to be in the neighborhood, please do stop by in the dealers room and say hello to their publisher Gary Turner. And there just might be a couple "convention specials" at the table that you'll want to take advantage of, too.
ArmadilloCon regular attendees include Neal Barrett Jr. whose new novel, PRINCE OF CHRISTLER-COKE (ISBN 1-930846-28-2), will be available for your viewing and purchasing pleasure. And with Neal at the convention, you'll be able to get your copy of the book autographed as well.
In addition to Neal, you'll have an opportunity to meet and chat with Howard Waldrop and artist John Picacio.
Also in attendance will be Barbara Hambly. Though not a Golden Gryphon author per se, Barb is rather special to Golden Gryphon because of her continuing support and encouragement in their efforts to bring George Alec Effinger's work back into print.
Barb wrote the introduction to George's BUDAYEEN NIGHTS, and then when George passed away before completing the story introductions, she offered to write all the story intros as well. Barb has also agreed to spend some time at the Golden Gryphon table, so do bring your copies of BUDAYEEN NIGHTS to the convention for Barb to autograph.
