The annual Dragon*Con photo blog

For those of you who view clicking through picture galleries with the same horror our parents reserved for slide shows of Aunt Ermintrude's trip to the Catskills, today's post at Beyond the Veil is for you.  I've cherry-picked some of my best photos of Dragon*Con 2011 and wrapped them in the lightest of all possible con reports.  And there isn't a panel table anywhere in sight.  Enjoy!

This was supposed to be a test

Of the RSS feed at Amazon, but dang! A kind reader posted a good review of With Nine You Get Vanyr on the other book site. Thanks Anonymous!

Forget Necessity

Desperation is the mother of invention in this house.
I was trying to line up the August blogs I owe to blog sites other than my own. The goal was to get it all over with now, so I’d have more time to write next month. They were all playing nicely except my August 22 Samhain blog. Given the date, I’d be a fool not do something related to DragonCon, but what? The program schedules are almost never finalized until the week before Labor Day, and I was pretty sure I’ve written everything there is to write about the con.
Should I do something about the balls? The Masquerade? The guests? My costume changes?
Then it hit me: Sixteen Ways DragonCon Is Like a Regency Country House Party.
The weird thing is, it works.
‘Til later…
