NerdinOut Con 2022 Day 2

October 9th, 2022 Today at the convention, a kid walked up to my booth and picked up a copy of Brushfire.

Introduction v.2022

July 20th, 2022 How does a person get another person to like them the first time they meet? That’s what required of us when we write these stupid distillations of ourselves.
