Free Chapbook at Penguinate Table (A1) at Lilac City Comicon 2019

Booth set up for Lilac City Comicon

Brian C. Baer is offering fans three death-related stories collected in a chapbook for free at Lilac City Comicon 2019. All you need to do is stop by the Penguinate table (A1) to pick one up on Saturday June 1 or Sunday June 2 during the convention.

If you’ve ever wondered what happened to people abducted by aliens and never returned to Earth, “I Haunt the Spaceship” explores one possibility. Baer deftly draws his characters through the eyes of the abductee.

Baer’s second story, “Tropical Depression,” takes on a rich girl sent to a psychiatric facility to learn how to be normal, or at lest be hidden away from her parent’s society friends and their embarrassment. The story leaves you feeling like maybe not everything was as it seemed.

In “Development Hell on Earth,” the final story of the chapbook, strange things are happening on a movie set. The film has been delayed and is overbudget. A studio meeting should solve the problem.

The stories in the chapbook bring to mind “Beetlejuice,” Harry Houdini and that “ALIENS!” meme guy from the History Channel. For a little light-hearted reading that has more depth than it may first appear. Come to the Penguinate table (A1) at Lilac City Comicon 2019 and get your free copy. While supplies last.

As a VIP or Vendor, you’ve worked hard to get your pass, which means you deserve a little break. At the Penguinate table, you’ll get $1 off of every purchase over $10. You don’t need to be a member of our Patreon campaign for this discount, you just need to present your VIP or Vendor credentials.

Our penguins are looking for good homes where they will be cherished and bring joy. They love to cosplay, and many of them already have costumes. If you don’t see a penguin that captures your fancy, we can make a penguin specifically for you. You’ll can place your order with a small deposit at the comic con, and we’ll begin working on it in July.

Every penguin is handmade with hand embroidered eyes, which gives each penguin a unique look. For every penguin we sell during ALVCC, we will give $1 to the Global Penguin Society.

Our books include “Disneyland Is Creativity” and “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity.” We also have the fictional “Adventures on the Amur” series and “The Pirate Union.”

Booth set up for Lilac City Comicon

As a VIP ticket holder at Lilac City Comicon 2019, you get a lot of cool things from early entry to the show and an exclusive print to a Disney enamel pin and priority reserved seating. This year, you’ll also get $1 off any purchase of $10 or more at the Penguinate table (A1)! This discount is in addition to the Patreon Penguinator discount if your eligible.

Our penguins and books are already priced lower than what you would pay online because you don’t have to pay shipping and handling, and we don’t like messy numbers that aren’t a multiple of five. If you preorder your items and show us your VIP pass when you get to our table, we will give you a dollar back. That means you don’t have to worry about losing out on any additional discounts. (Pro Tip: Our preorder prices are the lowest ever, and they may be even lower than what we open the comicon with.)

So, get your VIP tickets, and come see us to get your VIP discount. If you’re planning on going both days, an extra $4 (when compared with two single day adult passes) for VIP treatment is totally worth it. Remember VIP tickets must be purchased in advance. We look forward to seeing you at Lilac City Comicon 2019, June 1 and 2, at the Spokane Convention Center. Vendors also qualify for the discount, just show your vendor badge!

One Month Until Ogden UnCon June 7 to 9, 2019

Booth set up for Lilac City Comicon

We are super excited to be going to Ogden UnCon with our books and penguins. From June 7 to 9, we will be in Ogden celebrating pop culture with a few thousand of our closest friends.

Our penguins love to cosplay. (Penguin stock may vary based on availability.) My wife handcrafts beautiful stuffed penguins in two styles. The original penguins feature yellow bills and orange feet. Our black and white penguins are made from faux snow leopard fur and have either fuzzy or shiny feet. Penguins come with or without costumes, have their own names and include a passport. The eyes are hand embroidered, which makes every one unique. Come meet our penguins. For every one we sell, we will donate $1 to the Global Penguin Society. (Check out photos at our Instagram and on our website.) If you don’t see the penguin you want, you’ll be able to place an order.

As part of the event, I am scheduled to present “The Haunted Mansion: 50 Years of Creativity.” Focusing on the development, history and structure of the beloved Disneyland attraction, guests at my panel will be given a tour of the classic Haunted Mansion, which will be related to tips on how to become more creative. My book “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” is scheduled to be released on June 1, 2019 and should be available at Ogden UnCon. My other books, including “Disneyland Is Creativity” will be on hand while supplies last.

For people who are looking for wall displays, we have a few penguin motivational and other posters. Collectors may want to inquire about our Russian lobby cards featuring movies from the last couple of years. These lobby cards are like mini-movie posters.

To get the most out of your Ogden UnCon and our penguinate table, we highly recommend joining our Patreon at any level, so you can get $1 off for every $10 you spend. You should also preorder your items. Then you can be sure that they will be waiting for you when you arrive. Otherwise, they could get sold out!

Check out our press release. Read what we would do if we weren’t vendors at Ogden UnCon. Feel free to contact us if you have questions about our table, what we’re bringing and how to get your hands on it!

His books will be available throughout the convention, and there may be a chapbook “I Haunt the Spaceship” available! Times are yet to be determined for his signing.
