What if we gave a con and no one came?

So, I spent this weekend hanging out with Lou Ferrigno, Jackson Bostwick. Jennie Breeden, Ursula Vernon, Jamie Robertson, Louis Small Jr, and a few other freaks in an abandoned Belks.

It was Paper Heroes Con, great location, great value, great guests... very short notice, very few attendees.

So, no one made any money, but we did get to hang out, the panels were webcast (since Jennie's online audience was larger than the RL one), and the back rooms in an empty department store are just made of steampunk dungeon crawl.

Also reconnected with friends from high school and college.

Oh, and slightly late Sinister Bedfellows!

Ursula and I have similar taste in skirts

It seems I will have a fourth of a table at ZombieCon next Saturday. With luck I will get to see The Southern Undead featuring myself and ursulav shambling in the background of the crowd scenes.
