On Conventions:

  • The Three Hoarsemen discuss World Fantasy Convention in Arlington/D.C.; apparently, Shaun is mentioned more times than Paul in this one, which means something to someone somewhere…They also talk about some of the media they’ve been consuming, which should give you lots of ideas for things to buy.

On History:

  • Stuff You Missing in History Class discusses Henry Hudson in a two-part history adventure!  This might be of interest to anyone writing fantasy with seafaring peoples.
