It’s almost official:
Jim McPherson, creator/writer of the Phantacea Mythos, will be attending the Book Launch event opening night at Vcon 2013
VCON’s annual multi-author Book Launch event will be held the evening of Friday October 4, starting at 7p.
Attendees will be able to mingle and chat with a variety of science fiction and fantasy authors, editors and publishers from throughout BC, Canada and the US who have released new publications since the previous year’s VCON or who will be releasing new publications before the end of the calendar year. In addition to the opportunity to schmooze with these authors and publishers there will be a period of readings from some of the attending authors.
VCON’s Book Launch event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! So please feel free to bring out your convention-shy friends and give them a brief taste of what we’re about.
That’s of course always assuming there is one: http://www.vcon.ca/vcon-38/special-events/book-launch.
If there is, then he’ll have with him copies of some of his earlier novels as published by Phantacea Publications:
B/w covers of all the novels, mini-novels and graphic novels to date released by Phantacea Publications
Notwithstanding in-house floods and slow-to-deliver POD producers in the States (why aren’t there any here in Vancouver?), he should also have with him copies of the latest Phantacea Mythos full-length novel “Nuclear Dragons“, the second entry of the ‘Launch 1980’ story cycle.

And if the newest novel hasn’t arrived up here in backwards Canada by then, well, he’ll happily read from and/or sign some of earlier books; assuming Vcon will let him.
More on “Nuclear Dragons” can be found here, here and here. It’s auctorial preamble is here and here.
The first entry in the ‘Launch 1980’ story cycle was 2009’s “The War of the Apocalyptics“. A note re the dreaded letter ‘D’ and the spoiler alert that goes with it are here and here. Both apply to “Nuclear Dragons” and both were taken from 2011’s “Janna Fangfingers“.
