Thank You for an Amazing Event!
Another FuMPFest has come and gone and we had so much fun we are just now getting around to sorting things out from the weekend.
All the acts were amazing, as usual. It was great to see Lauren Mayer and Bill Larkin do full sets and, of course, The Four Postmen just blew the lid off the place with their concert. It was amazing! And I am still humbled to have been named Honorary Postman #6 with a hat and everything. That was so cool!
The FuMP Game Show was a lot of fun and went off much better than we were expecting it to. The FuMP Bingo was a lot of fun, and Dare to be Weird Burlesque was a welcome addition to the weekend.
We still have some copies of the 2017 FuMPFest CDs if you haven't picked one up yet, and a limited number of FuMPFest 2018 t-shirts. So if you haven't picked yours up yet order soon before we run out.
We've already started planning for next year and we are looking to fill two more volunteer positions. 1. Hotel Liaison. We are looking for someone to just interface between Devo and the hotel. Must be in Chicago and have a car. 2. Salesperson. We are looking for someone to get us more sponsorships and possibly score some deals with local establishments. If you think you can help out with either position please email Devo Spice.
Thanks again, folks! And we'll update you on what we have planned for next year as soon as we know anything!

FuMPFest 2018 App Available
Our mobile app has been updated for this year's event. Go to your respective stores and download it to help you enjoy the weekend. The app is available for iOS and Android. (The Google Play store is still showing last year's icon for some reason. Install it and you'll see this year's icon.)
The app features our schedule, area map, hotel information, policies, and links to audio and video streaming sites. So if you can't attend the event in person you can tune in to the audio on DementiaRadio or the video on Twitch. (Note that due to a technological change we were unable to get the Shoutcast stream to work from inside the app itself. The app links to DementiaRadio.org. You will need a streaming media app such as VLC to listen to the stream.)

He writes in a variety of genres and will be in attendance at FuMPFest again this year. His novels will be available at Table 27 along with the rest of the available merchandise.
Not Privileged to Know and its sequel Need to Know, Privileged Information are political thrillers involving the Mafia and corrupt politicians. Heaven's Conflict, the Rise and Fall of Angels is a religious fantasy novel about the fall of Lucifer and ensuing war. Generation Z, Birth of the Zompire is a horror story about a man who falls prey to a zombie attack after having been bitten by a vampire and becomes something new. And Death of the Innocents, a Detective Murph Mystery is a murder mystery involving a serial killer at a women's medical clinic. Bill is hard at work finishing up his latest novel, a YA fantasy novel called The Mysical Wand of Quinta. Keep an eye out for that one in the coming months.
