Link of the Week: “Conventions and Authors” by Tobias S. Buckell

Leave a comment

Over at his blog, author Tobias Buckell (Crystal Rain, Ragamuffin, Sly Mongoose, Arctic Rising, The Apocalypse Ocean…and a lot more) talks about his experiences at Worldcon, his thoughts on how cons work for him as a professional writer, and so much more.  It’s my favorite post-Worldcon post thus far this year, so anyone interested in a pro-writer’s perspective on the value of cons to writers should definitely read his post.

And then you should go buy a whole bunch of his books.  Basically, all of his stuff is amazing.  I won’t pick for you.  Just…start somewhere 😛
