Monday Musing – MidsouthCon Report: Why Do All Hall Costumes Try To Shoot Me?

Elizabeth Donald entitled her blog reports of Midsouth Con as “Shambling in Memphis.” That seems like a good place to start.  I followed the crew from Yard Dog Press across a gray, cold and dreary Arkansas to find a warm spot of warmth, light and fun in Memphis. It was time for the annual MidsouthCon […]
