Context 20

This last weekend we attended Context 20, in Columbus Ohio. Let me tell ya, if you get a chance to attend next years (which I fully intend to) do so! It was a blast.

Lain attended the World Building Workshop, which he said was quite enlightening. They had so many good panels planned that it was often a toss up on which to attend. Often we had to split, each attending different panels and taking notes for the other.

I had the honor of sitting on a panel with fellow authors Matt Cook, Fran Friel, James Daniel Ross and Paul Melko.

We met Shawn Sine and Erin Hoffman who are endless knowledge pits on gaming and programming. I spent some time stalking Juanita Coulson on her panels. Listening to her experiences with movies while she was young was fun. Fantasy author Sandy Lender was lurking about and we enjoyed various converstations with her.

One of the most intriguing people I met there was John Dalmas. He's such a spry man with this impish glow in his eyes and an endless wealth of knowlege. Thank you John for being there and talking with us!

Jason from Apex Science Fiction & Horror Digest was there. They throw a heck of a room party, with artwork projected on the ceiling and everything.

There were so many others that we met, talked with and hung out with and many more we saw in passing. All in all, it was a lot of fun, very informative and a must go to Con for next year.
