March 19-21, 2021
The 2020 edition of ZKK was canceled due to COVID-19. Darn. But they have asked me back for 2021, and of course I said I'd hold the dates. So start planning your 2021, because I have!

Online from an alternate history
Fans of Eric Flint's "1632" hold an annual convention, and this year it's virtual. A number of big names will be speaking on panels, including Eric Flint himself, gamer favorites David Brin, David Drake, S. M. Stirling, and David Weber, and filker Tom Smith. I will participate in a panel on games and storytelling, hosted by Bill Fawcett.
The panel will be prerecorded, so in theory, once the convention launches, you can watch it any time. The event is free but registration is required – see the web page.
My own events are Friday (so as not to conflict with FnordCon) – a live autographing at 4:00, and the panel on Gaming and Storytelling at 6 – both on Track 3. Those are Central Daylight Time.

Our first virtual FnordCon was a success so we're doing it again. This is a free one-day live event with games and lots of panels. You will be able to ask questions at all events. Games will include Ultracorps,Tribes, Deadly Doodles, Ogre, Z-Shot, TFT, and more. Guest of Honor is Liz Danforth, prolific TFT illustrator. Yes, the virtual dealer room was popular so it is happening again, with one more dealer. See the web page for more info.

Online from Seattle, WA
This is a convention for Lego fans. At 1pm Central time on Sunday the 4th, I spoke about long-distance collaboration., and took questions afterward.
I thought this went very well and will be open to proposals to do similar things.
May 8-10, 2020
Will be rescheduled for 2021, and I plan to go.
April 3-5, 2020
We have cancelled FnordCon. We will not try to reschedule for later in the year. We did a Virtual FnordCon on April 17-19, and it was very successful, with almost 500 present including staff, speakers, and, yes, dealers (we had a virtual dealer room). We may very well do the virtual event again, and we hope to see you in 2021 for FnordCon 3!
