Well The Longest Con written by Michaelbrent Collings just may give you the insight you've been searching for. With characters like Larry Correia, Kevin J. Anderson, D.J. Butler, Orson Scott Card, Mercedes Yardley and Michaelbrent himself how can things go wrong!
As all convention go'ers know no con is perfect and there are many behind the scenes things that happen without our knowledge. However, at this convention things become so intense behind the scenes that these authors stop selling their books to rush to the aid of the poor convention go'ers that are caught in the middle of a war with supernatural beings.
If that doesn't peek your interest I don't know what will?
If you've ever had the chance to catch any of the Dungeon Crawler interviews with Michaelbrent then you know this guy has a thing for golden babies and a sense of humor for a horror writer. The Longest Con is bursting with humor you're taken through a series of twists and turns throughout the story with his usual tight prose. The story itself is fun, original, and well worth the price of admission
