Conventions I'm going to this summer

May 22-25, 2015.
Comicpalooza in Houston, TX.

I went to Comicpalooza for the first time last year and had a blast. It was basically a large SF/F con sitting on top of a comiccon, with great panel programming for writing resources and discussion, books, art, fandom, making films, costuming, gaming, ghost hunting, etc, plus a giant convention floor with dealers and artists of all kinds, plus a maker fair with robots and 3d printing, plus celebrities. If you go, try to buy your pass online and pick it up on Friday to avoid the long lines to get in.

July 2-5, 2015.
CONvergence in Bloomington, MN.

This was another first last year and it was a huge amount of fun, great programming, a huge number of people, and gorgeous costumes.

July 24-26, 2015.
ArmadilloCon in Austin, TX.

ArmadilloCon has been one of my favorite cons for a long time, and it was the first one I ever went to way back when I was in high school, and I was guest of honor in 2002. It's a smaller con with a focus on books and art. There's a day long intensive writers' workshop on Friday, and the big guests this year are Ken Liu and James Morrow.
