With this year's FarmerCon - the annual celebration honoring famed science fiction writer (and friend) Philip José Farmer - just around the corner, I thought I'd share this photograph taken at the first FarmerCon I attended at Phil's house back in 2007. This is me with award-winning SF-horror-western author Joe Lansdale together in the library in Phil's basement, where we and other PJF friends and fans gathered to talk about Phil and the impact his work has had our lives both personally and professionally.
