- The House of Grey — The last few chapters of this Parsec-nominated free audiobook are coming out, and it is paying off big time, with excitement and tragedy, action and mystery.

Go ahead and start listening to the book, and hold on for the ride!

Show notes for TWS133.75: Coffee with Encaf (@DragonCon2009)
I arranged a little last-minute, ad hoc get together at DragonCon and invited people to stop by. I was overwhelmed by the number of people, and am seriously considering a panel next year.
We sat around as I poked and prodded with a few Challenge Questions, we probably could have done more — should have done more — but I wanted to keep it under an hour.
Thanks immensely to all who showed up. Next year, let’s do this again!
